THIS manual is intended to serve as a notebook, to which you, the elementary flying pupil, can refer in order to refresh your memory on the flying instruction you receive both on the ground and in the air. If you take some pains to go over by yourself on the ground what the instructor has told you during any exercise in the air, you will find that exercise easier to carry out on the next occasion.

The last part of the manual is concerned with the various flying exercises that you will undergo, while the earlier chapters contain an account, in very simple language, of the principles of the mechanics of flight. If you regard this part of your instruction as mere theory, as something only remotely connected with the actual flying, you will make a serious mistake. The elementary pupil is not expected, and does not need, to acquaint himself with all aspects of aerodynamics and aircraft design; but he must, if he is to become a really efficient pilot, know the fundamental facts about the forces involved; since, in flying, he is always concerned with the utilization and control of these forces.
