by Charles Wood

THIS 83-year-old pilot with an accident free 45-year 20,000+ flying hour career shares The shocking fact that many aviation accidents are caused because no one is FLYING THE AIRPLANE!. In this book the author shows what can be done to prevent future accidents of this type.
"Fly the Airplane!" is a must-read for pilots and everyone in the aviation business. This book was written for people who want to be pilots, people training to be pilots, recreational pilots, military pilots, people beginning careers as pilots, and even "old timer" pilots. It should be required reading for airplane designers and design engineers. The title of this book, "Fly the Airplane!" should be permanently imbedded in every pilot's brain, to be the overriding thought any time the pilot is in the cockpit during flight. These three words may seem redundant if you are a pilot flying solo, but they are not! Any time you are with another pilot in the cockpit of an airplane with dual flight controls, that should be the thought that makes the difference between life and death.
