The Flying Instructor's Patter Manual
A word for word account of all the flying...
Patter is the term given by flying instructors to the language they use while demonstrating training exercises in the air. It is a very special language as it has to be precisely coordinated with control movements and absolutely lucid. "Patter" is also a picture language because the art of flying is largely about visual cues. The good flying instructor should know these cues and a prime object of this book is to highlight them, not only in the text, but with matching pictures as seen from the cockpit. The Patter book is the first flying manual ever to record verbatim the language of the flying instructor as spoken in the air.
The German Great Escape
Revealing a largely unknown and remarkable prison escape of the Second World War, this historical recount examines the event that took place on Island Farm, a small patch of land in south Wales. In March 1945, this island became the scene of the largest prisoner-of-war escape in Europe when over seventy German prisoners tunnelled to freedom. In addition to prisoners of war, the escapees included numerous high-ranking German and Nazi figures awaiting trial at Nuremburg.
A Rough Guide to the Sermon on the Mount
A refreshingly different guide to the Sermon on the Mount. Spring Harvest Leadership Team member Gerard Kelly takes the traveller/reader through places to visit (and those to avoid), local customs and people to meet.
The Progressive Guide to Alternative Media and Activism
The independent media are arguably more important than ever today, as corporate media’s line reads increasingly like a government press release rather than a free society’s analysis of the day’s important events. But there’s a lot to sort through: Independent newsmagazines and newspapers, local cable-TV access, and independent and microtransmitted radio are everywhere, offering a vast array of news, opinions, and information. New Indymedia activists alone now have direct links to more than sixty-five grassroots news sites around the world. The challenge we are faced with is two-fold: We must make these news sources widely accessible, but we must also find ways to compile, sort, and collectively release this real news to millions of people—a project that this invaluable guide for diversifying your access to information can make much more achievable.
