The top 10 books for general aviation pilots

We suspect that many of our pilot or would-be pilot readers will be grounded for the winter but Jason Schappert of has put together his ultimate private pilot reading list of the top 10 books that should be on every pilot’s or student pilot’s shelf. His list of books included the following:

  1. Stick and Rudder
  2. Pass Your Private Pilot Checkride
  3. Flight of Passage
  4. Say Again Please
  5. Making Perfect Landings In Light Airplanes
  6. The Student Pilot Flight Manual
  7. You Can Be A Pilot! Answers to 25 Questions About Learning To Fly
  8. Flying Carpet: The Soul of An Airplane
  9. Controlling Pilot Error: Situational Awareness
  10. Logging Flight Time

Are there any other books that should be added to Jason’s ultimate list?

    I'd add Weather Flying by Capt. Robert N. Buck, Redefining Airmanship by Col. Tony Kern, and Fate is the Hunter by Capt. Ernest K. Gann.
