Commercial Pilot Flight Maneuvers

  • Intuitively appealing presentations and explanations facilitate learning and understanding and promote study discipline by making preparation for the commercial pilot tests a more positive experience.
    • Answer explanations to the immediate right of each question. This placement provides you with immediate feedback and saves time and effort.
    • Shorter study units. The Gleim books are divided into chapters and study modules to improve understanding and learning.
    • Special indentations and line spacing greatly reduce study fatigue and encourage you to cover much more study material than when using conventional study books.
    • Our comprehensive coverage assures that you will be well prepared. Gleim consistently covers nearly all FAA exam questions.
