One Complete Introductory Reference
I have read the Airplane Flying Handbook 3 times and certain sections even more. A very good reference for anyone wanting explore flying and getting their license.Tells you what you need to know to fly and pass the exams. A lot of questions on the private exam comes from this and the Aeronautical Information Manual. In fact AOPA Flight Training magazine uses both references for their monthly pop quiz. I covers single engine, multi-engine turboprops and turbines (jets). Great reading even if you fly a Piper Cub. You can learn a lot about a variety of aircraft and how they fly and operate in the air. Great reference to back-up your lessons.
