Primarily for general aviation discussion, but other aviation topics are also welcome.

I have long been an admirer of John Deakins Pelicans Perch articles from Avweb, these disappeared for a while but now seem to be back, for an index of the older ones see here https://www.avweb.com/flight-safety/pel ... rch-index/ for the later ones click on the link at the top (row of black boxes), he does some really good ones on engine management. I would particularly recommend 7,8,15,16,18,19,43,63-66,77,78 and 84.
happy reading!

They are the proverbial dog's b*******ks for anyone wanting to know more about engine and aeroplane management.

THink I must have read every one of them - and it is not just that the theory is good, applying it in practice is easy and rewarding.

I can second your recommendation thoroughly.

Thank you foxmoth. Not seen these before. Excellent!
Particularly liked (of the posts I've read so far) nearly landing gear up in a 747.
Lessons for everybody.

Agreed, essential reading for engine management. The perfect antidote to what the average PPL is taught about mixture/the lever for turning the engine off.

If you read #3 I think he says much the same!
