"Stick and Rudder" is the first exact analysis of the art of flying ever attempted. It shows precisely what the pilot does when he flies, just how he does it, and why.
Because the basics are largely unchanging, the book therefore is applicable to large airplanes and small, old airplanes and new, and is of interest not only to the learner but also to the accomplished pilot and to the instructor as well.
Today several excellent manuals offer the pilot accurate and valuable technical information. But "Stick and Rudder" remains a leading think-book on the art of flying. One thorough reading of it is the equivalent of many hours of practice.
