Students and professionals gain an appreciation of the variety of regulatory issues involved in air carrier operations and gather the background information they need to identify relevant regulations and apply them. The book examines the many regulations governing an air carrier and focuses primarily on 14 CFR Part 121 air carriers, though coverage includes Part 119 and relevant portions of Parts 117, 135, 91, and 61 of the FAR. The text emphasizes Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) flight operations, particularly useful to instrument-rated pilots and aircraft Dispatchers. The Second Edition is extensively revised, with many new regulations covered from the years since the 1st Edition, one example of which is the newer Rest Requirements regulations for airline crews and other air carrier employees. A college text, ideal for Air Carrier Flight Operations or Airline Operations courses, this book also provides excellent preparation for airline interviews and initial pilot and dispatcher training."

Known for being one of the most versatile and robust aircraft ever produced, the Cessna Caravan has become the DC-3 workhorse of our current times—as Cessna nicknames it, a "Swiss Army Knife with wings"! This pilot favorite does it all, on land or sea: bush flying, geophysical exploration and mapping, patrol, air ambulance, military, sightseeing, corporate, commuter airline, skydiving, cargo, missionary and humanitarian flying, and much more. The Caravan’s almost legendary reputation of safety and reliability remains a comforting constant for those who affectionately refer to the aircraft as their “flying SUV,” “Suburban with a turbine,” or “aerial truck.” From its coverage of the Caravan’s colorful history to its innovative-yet-conventional aircraft systems, to interesting pilot stories, tips, and beautiful photography throughout, Lewis and Cook's book is both entertaining and enlightening—Caravan edutainment at its best! The chapters parallel flight phases on a typical mission, and are chock-full of experience, insights and trivia from preflight to postflight—a truly amazing story for all pilots interested in this legendary powerhouse. Every chapter contains a special topic along with the related phase of flight, comprised of Lewis and Cook's coverage of pertinent Caravan characteristics, or stories told by pilots flying Caravans in unusual circumstances and faraway places. Two sections of color photography are included, and multiple appendices with further information on specifications and industry contacts for Caravan owners, as well as extensive footnotes and bibliography. Foreword by Steve Stafford.
