thats so nice of FAA to put some useful books for free...just that,there are quite a number of em... could you tell me what you recommend? that you felt were most useful? I've got the e-books of Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge,
Airplane Flying Handbook (both thanks to "Another"), instrument flying and aircraft weight and balance...I am certain that I am missing the books of other important chapters, could you let me know what/where they are? Thanks for your time B2N2!! :)
