    "the 58P" I have just completed reading Jack Shannon book “the 58 An Aerodynamicist pilot's look at the Baron 58P”. This is definitely a thinking pilot’s, fun to read guide to flying high performance General Aviation aircraft. It is a relatively short book in terms of page count, but don’t let that fool you. Written around the performance analysis of the Beech Baron 58P, any pilot who flies high performance aircraft would find the contents with the author’s description of the 22 performance charts to be a useful method to analyze the performance of any General Aviation aircraft. The author, who is a career aerodynamicist, is able to succinctly describe in everyday pilot terms the facts behind the performance numbers found and not found in the manufacture’s Pilot Operating Handbooks (POH). Each performance chart Shannon provided puts clarity into the discussions such as, effect of power setting on cruise efficiency with head winds, tankering penalty, do’s and don’t in flight... More > planning, useful tips one doesn’t think about and the importance of simulator training. As multi-engine flight instructor (Gold Seal) I found the content an excellent format to review any aircrafts performance expectations and limitations for recurrence training or flight proficiency reviews. Also, most pilots who fly high performance aircraft would benefit from reading this refreshing approach to looking at aircraft performance numbers and the other discussions not found in the aircrafts POH. I think Shannon has made real contribution to the General Aviation training literature. Mike Lavelle Seattle, WA.< Less
