How many of you guys have this book? I just recieved it and while it is a little underline and bold happy I do consider it a great book. Some of the information is duplicated which at first I thought wasn't a good idea but then I realized that a lot of new pilots might just look under a certain subject so something important relating to more than one thing should be located in more than one place.

Anywho I've just been reading through it, I'm about half way (skipping all the IFR related material at the moment), and I have to say I give this book two thumbs up. Very in depth with great rules of thumb as well as the resources he uses to find his information for every topic. Great refresher for those that haven't studied up in a while. Anyone else have any say so's about this book? I did a search and didn't find it mentioned and I think it's a shame such a good book and huge effort on the authors part should go unnoticed. He even puts his cell phone in there in case you have any questions! Never had anyone do that before. I highly recommend it :D

I worked with a company that was obtaining 135 certification. In short order, some real misunderstandings regarding regulation became apparent from the DO-to-be, on down. I showed the DO a copy of Everything Explained, and loaned it to him. He purchased a copy, then another, and soon bought one for each member of management, and each worker in the office at his location. He seemed quite pleased with it.

Since you guys seem to be experts explain 121.525(b) and how it applies to supplemental 121 ops.

121.525(b) applies to supplemental ops because it's listed under Subpart S of Part 121, which covers supplemental operations. This subparagraph doesn't prescribe the flight and duty limitations for crews that serve in several capacities, but rather defines the types of service, and then refers the reader back to prior paragraphs that have already set for the the appropriate time and duty limitations.

It's not a limiting paragraph, but a defining one.

This is nice for just new pilots?

Is a new pilot someone who has less than 300 hours?

You have to have a Braille-compatible monitor.

Avbug that sounds quick and dirty but you wouldn't believe the mess it has caused in our company. We had a pilot insist that it defines the diffrence in operation between a two man crew(8.0 hours) and three man crew(12.0 hours with maximum flight deck duty of 8.0 hours per pilot). The pilots claimed that if they flew X amount of hours for the month as a 2 man crew then they could not fly as part of a three man crew as the regulations define the type of operation that a pilot is involved in. What it comes down it is that we would have to have designated three man crews and designated two man crews for the month. We would have to hire a heap load more of pilots which would hurt all of us that survive on overtime and day off pay. It has gone all the way to the top and could change supplemental ops as we know it today. Of course it would provide more jobs for people on this board but at a pay rate I would be embarrassed to tell.

Great book. Very informative, tons of info with references in case you want too easily check it. He puts it out there straight and it is funny/sarcastic. Not things I can say about other books that are about the same subject. Great book for everything from interview prep to a refresher or a rating.-kingaira90
