LoveReading View on Pilot Academy

Well laid-out, and packed with information and interactive tests and activities to develop skills and understanding, this is just the book for anyone interested in becoming a pilot.  It will tell them everything they need to know about flying helicopters, jets and commercial aircraft, from what the controls on a helicopter do, to the make-up of a jet engine. There are practical projects to try and readers can make a rotocopter or a string radio, and work out how much fuel you would need to pilot a plane round the USA. Once each section is complete, children add a sticker before graduating to the next task. Added extras in this terrific book include a press-out and make model plane.  ~ Andrea Reece
