The Weight-Shift Control (WSC) Aircraft Flying Handbook introduces the basic pilot knowledge and skills that are essential for piloting WSC aircraft. It introduces pilots to the broad spectrum of knowledge that is needed as they progress in their pilot training. This handbook is for student pilots, as well as those pursuing more advanced pilot certificates. Student pilots learning to fly WSC aircraft, certificated pilots preparing for additional WSC ratings or who desire to improve their flying proficiency and aeronautical knowledge, and commercial WSC pilots teaching WSC students how to fly should find this handbook helpful. This book introduces the prospective pilot to the realm of WSC flight and provides information and guidance to all WSC pilots in the performance of various maneuvers and procedures. This handbook conforms to pilot training and certification concepts established by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). There are different ways of teaching, as well as performing flight procedures and maneuvers, and many variations in the explanations of aerodynamic theories and principles. This handbook adopts a selective method and concept to flying WSC aircraft. The discussions and explanations reflect the most commonly used practices and principles.

English summary: The contributions to this volume deal with the current interdisciplinary research on Calvin's work and impact in a European perspective. John Calvin's work influenced Europe not only theologically but also socially, politically, and culturally. Contributors are Karl Kardinal Lehmann, Mainz; Irene Dingel, Mainz; Amy Nelson Burnett, Lincoln; Emidio Campi, Zurich; Raymond Mentzer, Iowa; Mirjam van Veen, Amsterdam; Matthias Schnettger, Mainz; Ulrich Wien, Landau; Kestutis Daugirdas, Mainz; Herman J. Selderhuis, Apeldoorn; Heiner Luck, Halle; Eike Wolgast, Heidelberg; Matthieu Arnold, Strasbourg; Judith Becker, Mainz; Barbara Pitkin, Stanford; Max Engammare, Genf; Wolf-Friedrich Schaufele, Marburg; Christoph Strohm, Heidelberg; Elsie McKee, Princeton; Peter Opitz, Zurich; Athina Lexutt, Giessen; Volker Leppin, Jena; Olivier Millet, Paris; Mark Greengrass, Sheffield; Stefan Ehrenpreis, Munchen; Matthias Muller, Mainz and Ruth Slenczka, Berlin. German description: Die von Irene Dingel und Herman Selderhuis versammelten Beitrage widmen sich der europaischen Ausstrahlung des Genfer Reformators Johannes Calvin und den weitgreifenden Wirkungen des Calvinismus. Dabei kommt der Calvinismus als ein landerubergreifendes konfessionelles System in den Blick, dessen Gestaltungskrafte sich sowohl in theologischer als auch in gesellschaftlicher, politischer und kultureller Hinsicht ausserten, mit bestehenden Systemen in Interaktion traten und so wesentlich zur Auspragung des modernen Europa beitrugen. In drei thematischen Schwerpunkten kommen zunachst die Person Calvins und ihre Einflusse in West- und Osteuropa zur Sprache, sodann die durch Vertreibung, Exil und Neuaufbau gepragte Wirklichkeit des fruhneuzeitlichen Calvinismus und schliesslich die in einer spezifischen Spiritualitat und deren Medien Gestalt gewinnende geistige Kraft des Calvinismus. Der Band greift die verschiedenen aktuellen Forschungsdiskurse auf, fuhrt sie unter der Perspektive der europaischen Wirkmachtigkeit des Calvinismus zusammen und eroffnet durch seine Interdisziplinaritat und Internationalitat zugleich neue Blickwinkel, um auf diese Weise impulsgebend auf die Forschung zu wirken.

This is a completely new and revised edition of the General Aviation Handbook, long overdue since it has been over 10 years since the last edition was published. This edition is fully revised and updated and contains 10 years worth of updated material, including the addition of a number of manufacturers and aircraft which were omitted from earlier editions for various reasons. Aircraft new to this edition include the so-called "heavy microlights", which are now an important part of the worldwide light aircraft scene. About 90 percent of the photos are new, and larger page size provides greater space for large data tables and photos. Previous editions have been strong sellers; this is the main reference book on this important sector of the aviation world, and this new edition will be welcomed by both aviation enthusiasts and those involved in the aviation industry.
