Rod Machado’s Private Pilot Handbook – Third Edition, 656 full-color pages, soft cover. Copyright 2018/Updated to 2018. All Products Meet New Test Standards! 

This is a serious text, written in a clear and witty style. With 1,200 illustrations and photos, these 656 full-color pages make preparation for the FAA private pilot oral and knowledge exams—and flight reviews, too—a fun experience.

It’s best to train with only one highly regarded, seasoned instructor for your flight lessons. This ensures continuity in training, no gaps in knowledge and the benefit of learning from a skilled instructor with in-depth experience. The same is true with ground training. One highly experienced author ensures a deeper understanding of important aviation knowledge.

Rod’s readers continually benefit from his years of experience. Instructing since 1973, Rod personally writes, illustrates and updates all his books, too. Each one of his illustrations is there to teach, not just decorate. The text also explains why things work the way they do. This improves understanding and helps the reader remember. The result is higher test scores and a safer, more competent, and more confident pilot.
