Ground Operations Training A smooth operation and on-time aircraft departures & turnarounds are reliant on number of factors and teams working together towards a common goal. Bringing a community of under-wing teams together requires excellent communication, un-paralleled levels of safety, situational awareness and a highly skilled work-force. Performance of the Jet Transport Airplane: Analysis Methods, Flight Operations, and Regulations presents a detailed and comprehensive treatment of performance analysis techniques for jet transport airplanes. Uniquely, the book describes key operational and regulatory procedures and constraints that directly impact the performance of commercial airliners. The "Flight Lessons" series are available in print and e-Book, the International Operations Flight Manual in hard cover only. The reviews have been good and I hope you like them.
