An Aviator’s Field Guide to Middle-Altitude Flying: Practical skills and tips for flying between 10,000 and 25,000 feet MSL

In “An Aviator’s Field Guide to Middle-Altitude Flying” author Jason Blair shares his experience in a variety of piston twin-engine aircraft regularly used to fly in middle-altitudes, typically between 10,000’ MSL and 25,000’ MSL. This book describes major phases of flight and considerations that pilots who operate aircraft capable of flight at these altitudes may find useful as they develop their skills and seek tips and methods possibly missed in their initial training. This is the author’s result of years of instructing and taking notes previously passed on to his own students, now compiled and shared with the broader aviation community.

The pilot owner/operator of aircraft capable of flying above
10,000 MSL, up to altitudes in Flight Level 20s, may have had limited training that addresses this type of operation ― beyond basic aircraft systems and performance training. For these pilots, Jason Blair’s notes and suggestions help to expand technique more broadly into “middle-altitude” flight operation.

An Aviator’s Field Guide to Tailwheel Flying:
Practical skills and tips for flying a taildragger

In “An Aviator’s Field Guide to Tailwheel Flying,” author Jason Blair shares his experience in a variety of tailwheel-equipped aircraft. This book describes major phases of flight and considerations that transitioning or tailwheel pilots may find useful as they look to increase their proficiency. The discussion goes beyond the physical flying skills into other tailwheel aspects, such as operational differences in makes and models and ages of aircraft.

Pilots of aircraft such as Cessna 180s, Cubs, Champs, Maules or other aircraft of similar type and size will find this content helpful. This book is the author’s result of years of instructing and taking notes previously passed on to his own students, now compiled and shared with the broader aviation community.
