Below is the current errata list for this textbook. These errata will be corrected in the next edition.
Page 28 Finding Safe Endurance.
"Now let's rework the exercise above and include a requirement for a 15% variable reserve" now reads 10%
Page 106 Answer 2 now reads "CA is 2 in 60 which is 2°"

Important note concerning the latest AIP (2nd March 2017). AIP References
Avoiding Controlled Airspace. The distances that were specified in the old AIP have been dropped. The AIP [March 5th 2015] says that you must not actually enter CTA unless you have a clearance and, if your route takes you close to the boundary of CTA, you should either get a clearance or stay well clear of the boundary.
Page 1.30. Answers to exercise N 29. Last example on the page. 17.7 should be 107.
A couple of minor bugs have shown up in the most recent print of the book. Older versions are OK. Page 4.39 The far right-hand column should be labled 'HDG'. Page 5.18 In the answer to Question No 2 in Exercise N23, '55' should be '155'.
Page 1.15 Under the heading 'Know your charts', delete reference to MBZ. Page 3.15 AIP reference ENR 1.7.5 should be ENR 1.7 para 5 Notes Page 3.20 Below the graphic, WAC No 323 should be 3234 Page 5.34 AIP reference ENR 1.1 para 17.4.6 should be ENR 1.1 para 19.5.1 Page 5.35 AIP ENR 1.1 para 19.11 should be AIP ENR 1.1 para 19.12
12/06/12 - Page 3.19: The paragraph headed 'NAVIGATING BY VISUAL REFERENCE'.
You should note that by day, you may use any GPS to supplement normal visual navigation techniques. By night you may use GPS to assist in navigation but the GPS you use must be certified to at least the C129a techinical standard order [TSO]. See AIP GEN 1.5 para 188.8.131.52 [table].
03/02/2012 - Page 3.13: The second paragraph now reads:
"There are some standard methods of expressing the most commonly used reference pressures used in altimetry. The atmospheric pressure at sea level is used almost exclusively in Australia and it is referred to as the QNH. Occasionally, the altimeter may be set to read the height above a particular aerodrome. An example would be an aerobatic pilot at an airshow. He/she would be very interested in the height of the aircraft above the ground rather than sea level. Of course parachutists would have more than a passing interest in height above the ground. The pressure at a particular field is referred to as QFE."
26/09/2011 - Page 5.27: the OBS setting on the right hand diagram:
Should read "270" and not "090". The corrected page can be found here (link opens in new window)
27/09/2011 - Page 5.39:
The instruments in the right hand column should be labelled "VOR" and not "Fixed Card ADF".
