Hello, my name is Ben Lovegrove and in this video I’m going to review Rod Machado’s “How To Fly An Airplane Handbook”.

Are you a student pilot looking for a plain English guide to the exercises in the PPL syllabus?

Are you a current private pilot seeking an easy to follow refresher on the principles of flight?

Do you find yourself wishing you understood more but reluctant to ask because you worry about sounding stupid?

Watch this video through to the end while I explain what’s in this ebook, and how it’s highly likely to be the handbook you seek.

Disclosure: Rod Machado provided me with a free copy of this ebook in order to write this review.

Rod Machado is a familiar face to many people who have learned to fly light aircraft.

He is of course American, and while some of his many books and courses are written for the Federal Aviation Authority PPL syllabus, this particular ebook has global appeal.

The principles of flight and the techniques for perfecting all flying maneuvers are the same, whether you’re flying a Cessna out of Cincinnati, a Piper over Portsmouth in the UK, or a Mooney over Mumbai.

This book is ideal for any student pilot or pilot who wants to walk through the exercises and maneuvers before and after practising each of them.

It’s divided into 14 chapters, or should that be 14 pre and post flight briefings.

This is the book you need if you want to read, understand, practice, and perfect your techniques to the point where skilled maneuvers become part of your muscle memory.

But it’s not just about piloting the aircraft while airborne. It’s also packed with details about those preflight checks pilots carry out on the ground.

Aircraft checklists are just that – lists, but in order to understand why these lists exist and the purpose of each check you need further explanations, and this book provides them.

The explanations in each section are perfectly explained with numerous illustrations.

Reading through this book you’ll find yourself thinking, “Ah, now I get it!”.

The chapters are written in that same plain English style that is the hallmark of Rod Machado’s teaching technique.

Added to this is the humour which acts as an anchor point, making the lessons more memorable.

Too many ‘how to fly an aircraft’ textbooks are far too technical and lack this human touch.

They can also be lacking in clear images and graphics that highlight what is being explained.

Rod’s method has worked for over 40 years because he conveys the lesson in a style that is easy to follow and remember.

He talks to you through this ebook as if he’s both an instructor and a friend. He explains the lesson in a way that assumes you know nothing but without sounding condescending or patronising.

It’s clear from his style that he wants you to understand, and takes pleasure in explaining things to you.

What is the Space Force going to do? Defense, Offense, or False Flag?

In this video I try to answer the question, “What is the Space Force going to do?”.

In June 2018 President Trump announced that the US would be developing a space force. Two months later it was also announced that they planned to have the new service (USSF) established by 2020 with an initial personnel count of 200.

In July 2019 the then UK Defence Secretary Penny Mordaunt announced that the RAF is moving towards developing into a space force.

An RAF test pilot is to be seconded to support Virgin Orbit’s satellite program and will be aboard ‘Cosmic Girl’, Virgin Orbit’s modified Boeing 747-400 satellite launch platform.

In early August 2019, France announced that it too would be putting satellites in Earth orbit armed with laser weapons and machine guns.

The stated purpose would be to establish a space command for defending French satellites.

It is likely that other countries with assets in space; China, Russia, India and others, will follow suit and establish measures to protect those assets with weapons.

The US Space Force Strategic Overview, published in February 2019 and in the public domain (google for it), includes this section.

The Space Force will be organized, trained, and equipped to meet the following priorities.

– Protecting the Nation’s interests in space and the peaceful use of space for all responsible
actors, consistent with applicable law, including international law.

– Ensuring unfettered use of space for U.S. national security purposes, the U.S. economy, and U.S. persons, partners, and allies.

– Deterring aggression and defending the Nation, U.S. allies, and U.S. interests from hostile
acts in and from space.

– Ensuring that needed space capabilities are integrated and available to all U.S. Combatant
Commands.

– Projecting military power in, from, and to space in support of our Nation’s interests.

– And developing, maintaining, and improving a community of professionals focused on the
national security demands of the space domain.

It follows that any military power capable of putting satellites into orbit has the ability (or can quickly acquire it) to arm them for defensive or offensive purposes, and for the same or similar reasons to those listed above by the Americans.

It seems we are moving from the age in which satellites are used for mere surveillance and spying to an era of weaponised hardware in the Earth’s atmosphere.

One could argue that it is only to be expected. Armed forces operate on land, sea, and in the air, so it’s only logical that they should extend into space to protect a nation’s interests there too
