Transition to Jet-Powered Airplanes

Go back to the main Basic Aircraft Flight Page.

There are many considerations for a pilot when transitioning to jet powered airplanes. In addition to the information found in this category and type specific information that will be found in an FAA-approved Airplane Flight Manual, a pilot can find basic aerodynamic information for swept-wing jets, considerations for operating at high altitudes, and airplane upset causes and general recovery procedures in the Airplane Upset Recovery Training Aid, Supplement, pages 1-14, and all of Section 2 found here [pdf].
