A treasury of thirty-seven years of flying and teaching experience in the world's most popular executive aircraft. Tom Clements' articles, stories, and operating tips all compiled into one reference book. This information will be invaluable for current or future pilots of King Air airplanes.
Follow Up Review - I have owned a copy for several years. As most books, once read they sit on self gathering dust. Recently, flying in a friends e90 we had a minor pressuration problem that they had trouble shot for years. A quick check in Tom's book immediately identified problem that could be fixed by pilot procedure.. Because of this, I purchased PDF version for my ipad. During a propeller upgrade this week, How pilot could check for proper rigging was the question. After reviewing pg 203 with the mechanic we test flew and quickly identified needed adjustments. The mechanic comments when we landed sums it up, "this was the most through test flight ever". Last night I re-read book. It is amazing what I forgot. Recommendation, buy PDF version and read on long flights.
After having looked out and evaluated numerous planes in person, and settling for a King Air, this book is the consummate written experience. This man was virtually there when they built them and knows all the intricacies of each model. Caution and beware for it is only for those with a true passion for knowing all the nuts and bolts of these planes.
This is really a great publication. Learn all the details that the factory and most training providers forget to tell you. It covers the systems and techniques from a different and much more interesting viewpoint.
