Theory of flight: how does a plane fly?

Our theory book covers the basics of flying in 24 colorful pages. We start with lift: how can a plane actually fly? Next, we show what happens when you make a turn. Then, we have a look inside the flight deck: which indicators are important for you as a pilot. How do you control the plane? Finally, we will cover some traffic rules in the air and for ground movement.

This book covers the theory of flying in a very accessible way. So you can read back after your flight and learn again what happened all around you.

The plane of the Basic Flying lesson has served as a model for the theory book. The booklet also goes well with the theory of the other planes. We have a special edition for helicopters.

Theory helicopters: how does a helicopter fly?

Our second book is about flying a helicopter. This theory book covers 24 colourful illustrated pages. First, we discuss how Lift is established in a helicopter. Next, we describe the controls of the plane, followed by some basic maneuvers. Like: picking up, forward flying, turns and autorotation. We also describe which instruments can be found in the flight deck and some basic traffic rules.

This special edition was meant as background information for your first flying lesson in a helicopter.
