Promises Best Available Guide, Free Updates To E-Book
Rod Machado has become so well-known as an aviation humorist
that you could sometimes forget he's also a CFI with over 8,000
hours of instruction given. Rod has authored his own series of
instructional manuals now available in self-updating e-books, and
has also expanded into downloadable videos.
The latest addition to his e-bookshelf is Rod Machado's Sport
Pilot Handbook, First Edition. Rod promises the book will be fun,
and adds, "If you want to learn to fly, or even just learn about
what makes a plane fly, you’ll find this lavishly
illustrated, fast-paced book to be the best available guide.
Written in a clear and witty style, the Sport Pilot Handbook
contains more than 1,000 illustrations and photos that are a
standalone education about why we can fly.
"Studying for your sport pilot oral and knowledge exams?
Everything you need is in this book. It’s not just a
beginner’s book—it’s a comprehensive and useful
reference resource for sport pilots," he says.
Rod has been teaching people how to fly airplanes since 1973.
Using analogies, memory aids, detailed graphics and a little humor,
Rod reduces the complexity of aviation subjects to a level the
non-technical person can understand.
Rod's e-books are available as as PDF files for reading on up to
six computers (PC or Mac) using the free Adobe Digital Editions
Reader. They're also available as apps for the iPad, and for the
iPhone 3GS and 4, but not the 3G. Rod Machado's Sport Pilot
Handbook Version 1.0 sells for $44.99, and Rod promises free
updates as future revisions are released.
