What do those flap things on the wings do? How many flights can a pilot operate in a day? What is "fly by wire"? What is a "Low Cost" Airline? What are those numbers at the end of the runway for? The answers to all of these, and many other frequently asked questions are in this book Although much has been written about the airline industry by aerodynamicists, engineers and industry watchers there is very little written by the pilots themselves who go and fly the aircraft every day of their working lives. Peter Sneller explains in simple terms how a modern airliner works and also a little about the airline industry. Take-off! is a fascinating read for anyone who has ever wanted to ask the pilot a question.
