Literature

Since present day PC flight simulators represent more than mere games, it may be well advised to learn a few things in order to be able to fly competently. The content chosen was composed by people experienced in real world aviation, which means that it was composed in a manner more serious than the content created by flight simmers, which also exists. The following is recommended to the attention of the visitor:
  • Air Combat: Tactics And Maneuvering, an excellent book which, along with the theory necessary to understand the discussion about air combat explained in a comprehensible manner, contains detailed descriptions of maneuvers appropriate for different types of fighter aircraft in different situations. A Fighter Pilot and an Aeronautical Engineer, Robert L. Shaw, authored this book.
  • Air Combat Corner, a series of articles authored by a Fighter pilot, an A-10 Pilot, an airliner Pilot as well as a flight simulator Instructor, Andy Bush. Andy Bush also advised while PC flight simulators Lock On Modern Air Combat and Strike Fighters Project 1 were being developed. These articles are meant to help PC flight sim enthusiasts with learning the basics of air to air combat as well as the basics of attacking ground targets.
  • Art Of The Kill, a video that was delivered with Falcon 3.0 which can be viewed on Youtube now days. Pete Bonani, a real life F- 16 Pilot who also logged time in the A- 10, explains the basic concepts of air combat and maneuvering.
Fighter pilot's war memoirs provide unique insight into strains imposed upon these individuals in war conditions, as well as their thoughts and feelings, while also discussing the basics of flying and aerial combat:
  • Duel of Eagles, a book composed by an RAF Pilot Peter Townsend. Aside from the unique insight into the author's life's experience and descriptions of aerial battles fought during the Battle of Britain, the book also contains insight into the historical circumstances that brought WWII about as well as into the struggle of a few people to preserve the British air force during the period between the two world wars;
  • The Big Show, Pierre Closterman's war memoirs, speaks of aerial battles over the channel during the period which followed the Battle of Britain as well as on European soil right untill the end of WWII. As a journalist and an aviation enthusiast, the author of this book published his war diary after the war ended thus presenting those interested with a unique and impressive account of his war activities;
  • Gabby: A Fighter Pilot's Life, war memoirs of Gabby Gabreski, a Pilot who flew during WWII as well as during the Korean War. Apart from the impressions related to flying different types of fighter aircraft such as the P- 40, the Spitfire, P- 47 and the F- 86, the beginning of Gabby's career as well as his progress as a fighter pilot is described. Passages describing his experience related to flying itself are quite worth the attention;
  • The Battle of Britain, apart from being the war memoirs of Richard Bickers Townsend, is a book that sheds light on the strategic level of the battle. One can read about the struggle of coastal squadrons which flew in smaller formations in an attempt to stop Luftwaffe attacks as well as about the "rough treatment" German bombers suffered at hands of the big wing;
  • Samurai, war memoirs of a Japanese fighter pilot, Saburo Sakai, describe the experience of a Japanese Imperial Navy pilot throughout WWII. Along with relating the memories of his childhood, during which he was no less combative, the author describes many aerial battles in the Pacific;
  • Stuka Pilot, a work by Hans Ulrich Rudel, certainly isn't the appropriate literature for people who wish to be perceived as politically correct, because old Rudel is often reprimanded that he never stopped being a Nazi. Those who discard prejudice and go ahead and read this book anyway will probably find it frankly written and interesting;
  • I Flew For The Fuhrer, war memoirs of Heinz Knoke, a Luftwaffe pilot who used to bomb bombers while flying a Bf- 109 fighter;
  • The First And The Last, war memoirs of Adolf Galland, a man who played different roles from the start of the Spanish Civil War right to the end of WWII: starting out as a fighter- pilot and rising up to the position of the commander of the Luftwaffe. Known as the hero of many anecdotes the author relates, in a relatively serious tone, his attempts at rebuilding a defeated air force only to see his superiors bring it back to the verge of destruction through unporposeful use while attempting to bring megalomaniacal plans to fruition. All who ever wondered why the Nazis lost the war will find their answers in this book.
