Video tip: the pilot’s operating handbook (POH)


You’ll find a “how-to” manual on every airplane that describes how to operate that particular model, called the pilot’s operating handbook, or POH. This week’s tip takes a look at the information contained in the POH, along with the differences between the version that must be kept on the airplane and the one sold off the shelf at the local pilot shop.

The video clip below is from Sporty’s complete Learn to Fly Course
