Cockpit Confidential - Patrick Smith

I used to read the Ask the Pilot column on Salon, so when this book came up on the Kindle Daily Deal list, I jumped on it.    I’d always enjoyed the author’s columns, so figured I’d enjoy this too.  

It’s basically a primer in all things commercial aviation – from how pilots train, to a rundown of common procedures during flights, and even a discussion of air disasters.  

Interesting stuff if you’re curious about how your flight’s really working behind the scenes.   I suspect it’s old news to anyone with any familiarity with the industry, though.
