Prax saw two men abandon the press, walking back down the narrow, dirty hall, talking to each other. Well, no weapons worth anything, anyway. When that crab clank attacked, they scattered and ran.

What it is, and why it can't be seen. How lift is made, and what the pilot has to do with it. Why airplanes stall How do you know you're about to stall?
The landing approach. How the pilot's eye functions in judging the approach. The visual clues by which an experienced pilot unconsciously judges: how you can quickly learn to use them. A foolproof method of making a landing approach across pole lines and trees. The elevator and the throttle. One controls the speed, the other controls climb and descent.
Which is which? The paradox of the glide. By pointing the nose down less steeply, you descend more steeply. By pointing the nose down more steeply, you can glide further. What's the rudder for? The rudder does NOT turn the airplane the way a boat's rudder turns the boat. Then what does it do? How a turn is flown. The role of ailerons, rudder, and elevator in making a turn. The landing--how it's made. The visual clues that tell you where the ground is.
The "tail-dragger" landing gear and what's tricky about it. This is probably the only analysis of tail-draggers now available to those who want to fly one. The tricycle landing gear and what's so good about it. A strong advocacy of the tricycle gear written at a time when almost all civil airplanes were taildraggers. Why the airplane doesn't feel the wind. Why the airplane usually flies a little sidewise. His analyses of aviation's safety problems have deeply influenced pilots and aeronautical engineers and have contributed to the benign characteristics of today's airplane.
It has been continously in print for thirty-three years. It shows precisely what the pilot does when he flies, just how he does it, and why. In recent years its formulations have become widely accepted. Pilots and flight instructors have found that the book works. But Stick and Rudder remains the leading think-book on the art of flying. One thorough reading of it is the equivalent of many hours of practice.

By Wolfgang Langewiesche, ed. Drake Hokanson and Carol Kratz. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, In the opening scene of a recent movie about the Tuskegee Airmen, one of the young pilot candidates is seen reading Stick and Rudder , the classic work on how to fly by Wolfgang Langewiesche. Problematically, the movie's opening scene was set in ; Langewiesche did not publish his book until However, while the cadet could not have been reading that particular work on his way to flight training, he could have been inspired by the author's earlier book, I'll Take the High Road , published in
What pilots claimed to. Langewiesche set himself the task. The first.
