Over 1,000 Copies Later, Cessna 210 Flight-Ops Book Still Getting High-Flying Reviews

With strong sales since its release and a five-star rating on Amazon, Chuck McGill’s Flying the Cessna 210: The Secrets Unlocked has proven invaluable for numerous pilots who own and fly all models of Cessna 210s. Chuck McGill, a six-time Master CFI, offers his wisdom on optimum performance and safety based on his thousands of hours of flying and teaching in the airplane. Flying the Cessna 210 includes:

  •  Accessories and modifications
  • Tips and techniques for preflight, taxi, takeoff, climb, cruise, descent, and landing operations
  • Maximizing the 210’s versatility
  • 114 full-color photographs and illustrations in 11 chapters
  • Extensive Appendix

Flight instructor, author, and speaker Rod Machado says, “Chuck McGill’s book, Flying the Cessna 210, is an absolutely must-have for your library. After reading this book, you’ll feel that you’ve just sat down for a one-on-one ground lesson with one of our industry’s most respected flight instructors.”

Award-winning pilot and journalist Barry Schiff has this to say: “If you think you know what there is to know about flying a Cessna 210, Chuck McGill’s excellent book will both surprise and delight you.”

2008’s National Flight Instructor of the Year, Max Trescott, says, “I learned a number of things from Chuck’s book that I never knew about my plane. If you can’t fly with him, buy Flying the Cessna 210.”

One of the many glowing reviews on Amazon is posted by Charles Roell of San Francisco. He says McGill’s book is “My go-to resource, often as quickly as the POH and/or the AIM. Go fly with Chuck!”
