Let’s face it, owner’s manuals, checklists, textbooks, and federal regulations are essential reading for pilots, although they aren’t going to keep you up late at night turning pages in anxious anticipation.

The list also includes easy-to-read rules of thumb and handbooks. Buy two copies and keep one in the cockpit also.
