Published by the Nick Davies, son of the author, this book is recommended reading for those wishing to be professional pilots. This book is seen by many as the definitive source of information for future as well as current airline pilots. The first and still the only textbook on jet aircraft handling qualities.

This edition includes chapters on the Boeing 747 and asymmetric flight as well as up-to-date revisions to the text. An explanation of the significant differences in flying qualities between jet transport aeroplanes and piston engine transport aeroplanes together with some other aspects of jet transport handling.

Handling The Big Jets is the difinitive guide for pilots looking to advance their careers. Inevitably in their process to do so pilots face the prospect of having to perform for airline interview panels and simulator check rides. For some pilots this can be a daunting experience because of lack of exposure to big jet techniques. The essence of Handling The Big Jets is about relationships, and aerodynamics. For the uninitiated, the differences between piston engine or turbo-props and jet transports are most pronounced during take-off, landing and encountering severe weather. Handling The Big Jets covers these phases of flight in depth and as such forms an essential part of the book. Handling the big jets is an authoritative text for those aviators and students interested in making the jump from light aircraft to heavy jets, and learning about the techniques and flying qualities of these aircraft. This text will be particularly useful for pilots who are looking to transition from light aircraft to jets, or the new hire facing their first jet endorsement, and narrow body crew going wide body. Can truly be described as the best of its kind in the world - International Federation of Airline Pilots Association. 325 pages, Hardback.
