FAA official handbooks for plane and helicopter pilots


Recommended Posts

It seems like many people don't know, thus sharing FAAs (Federal Aviation Administration) official handbooks for pilots of planes and helicopters. The following, include all the possible topics you could think of within civilian aviation. Much of the knowledge here, is definitely relevant for a military setting as well, such as e.g. principles of flight, weather theory or flying at night. These handbooks are certified, and certainly of good quality. Everyone will find something for themselves here:


Handbook for planes - PHAK Front Matter (faa.gov) 1

Handbook for helicopters - Helicopter Flying Handbook (FAA-H-8083-21B) 2


There are many more interesting documents concerning civilian aviation here: https://www.faa.gov/regulations_policies/handbooks_manuals/aviation
