  • Excellent tool

    Really interesting content with videos. A lot of added content compared to basic documentation from boeing. Definitely helps when carrying out a type rating and provides better knowledge on the systems.
  • Thorough and carefully thought out publication

    By Toniopilot
    Here is a complete technical publication carefully thought out, where you’ll find out all necessary useful informations on the different aircraft systems. There are many well illustrated schematics, pictures and videos which will also help you to familiarize yourself with all types of operations, from the walk-around to the AUTOLAND. This publication is distinguished by its playful side, and it goes beyond the other commercially available books on certain fields. Personally, coming from the B737 classic, this book helped a lot to assimilate NG differences. I highly recommend it!
  • Excellent technical book

    By Captainolive
    For once, that's a well done book. Descriptions of systems are straight forward and accessible at a glance. You will get further details through videos and enhanced pictures. It gives you the essential without overwhelming you with irrelevant information. A must have that should also be edited in a paperback version!
