From the cockpit of a single-engine Cessna to the flight deck of the Concorde, Richard Collins has seen it all. He is the quintessential pilot, a professional who, with over 17,000 flight hours, still believes that striving for the perfect flight every time makes flying safer and more enjoyable.
There is much more to flying than just manual skills — and therein lies the fun. A professional approach is every bit as essential in a simple, private airplane as it is in a commercial jetliner. With the rich perspective began with his first solo in 1951, he shares his firsthand experience in all aspects of flying — from liftoff and coping with bad weather to knowing your airplane and its capabilities and how to deal with air traffic.
