Book - 2009
Rate this:
Piloting experimental aircraft is more dangerous than most other types of flying. Test pilots are generally military aviators who fly new and modified aircraft, allowing the results to be measured and the design to be evaluated. Despite their image as fun-loving daredevils, these pilots have to be ruthlessly precise and professional when flying. This intriguing book looks at what type of people become test pilots; how they train; what the job includes; how it feels to be the first person to fly a new design; the aircraft they fly; and how they analyze and report on each flight.
