Airplane Flying Handbook

FAA-H-8083-3C Updated 2021

The Airplane Flying Handbook provides basic knowledge that is essential for pilots. This handbook introduces basic pilot skills and knowledge for piloting airplanes. It provides information on the transition to other airplanes and the operation of various airplane systems. It is developed by the Flight Standards Service, Airman Testing Standards Branch, in cooperation with various aviation educators and industry. This handbook is developed to assist student pilots learning to fly airplanes. It is also beneficial to pilots who wish to improve their flying proficiency and aeronautical knowledge, those pilots preparing for additional certificates or ratings, and flight instructors engaged in the instruction of both student and certificated pilots. It introduces the future pilot to the realm of flight and provides information and guidance on the performance of procedures and maneuvers required for pilot certification.

Due to a technical glitch in the 2016 publishing of the Airplane Flying Handbook, Chapter 12 (FAA-H-8083-3B) abruptly ends on page 12-28. The following addendum contains the remaining material that is missing from the current version of the chapter. The current version: 2021, is correct and does need this addendum.
