Good Points
It provides a useful list of genuine interview questions for those going for a career in civil aviation. It covers a wide range of subjects from technical to weather. For those of us going for their first interview in some years, it was useful.

Bad Points
It is poorly researched with many large glaring mistakes. The danger is that those using it as an authority will be misled. Further research is necessary. There are few diagrams and those illustrated are again sometimes wrong, such as the reason tip stall occurs first on a swept wing.

General Comments
Despite the rubbish touted as aviation fact, this is a useful list of thought-provoking questions designed to test your knowledge of aviation. However, do your own research to ensure that the answers you give. To that end, I'd recommend it to someone already in aviation revising for interview, but definitely not someone going for their very first airline job.

Professionalpilot's Response to 344567_jumbojock's Review

Written on: 24/01/2011

I found this review somewhat helpful because...This book shouldn't even be on the market!
<br/>If it has this many errors, why would anyone want to buy a half-baked technical book which is hit and miss?
<br/>Help you ace an interview? More like dig yourself a hole?
<br/>I'd buy it if the price was $2, then correct all the mistakes by proofreading properly then charge $30 for my time and effort.
<br/>Any takers? No, I didn't think so!...
