    Description: Written by Mark Vanhoenacker, a senior first officer for British Airways, How to Land a Plane is a book that tells you how to get in the cockpit and take the controls of any aeroplane. Mark invites you to be captain as he talks through the nitty-gritty of an approach and a touchdown. He also explains our understanding of flight from the ground up (or rather, from the sky down) as he reveals all the ins and outs of this incredibly challenging and rewarding achievement of humanity. Short, humorous and spiritual, this book makes flying more fun and accessible before. You'll learn the difference between 'controls' and 'instruments' and be able to notice the breathtaking beauty of amazing cloudscapes and stunning sunsets from up above.
