Written more as a reference guide, Cronin's book covers the many quest ions the flying public can have bef ore, during, and after flight. Cron in divides his book into seven sect ions each containing several questi ons with detailed answers: flight c ancellations and delays, baggage ha ndling, weather, air traffic contro l, airports, airliners, and pilots. His questions are written in basic form, much like the questions a co ncerned passenger would ask who is unfamiliar with flying. For example , one question he covers: what are those tiny pieces of metal sticking straight up from the wing? He deta ils his answer with the explanation that they are vortex generators, w hich create a vortex that prevents air from separating from the wing o r other surface area on an aircraft . Cronin breaks down his explanatio ns further with additional details and often includes a supporting pic ture or graph to visually stress th e answer. For those who frequently take to th e air, Cronin covers a number of th e more difficult questions regardin g aircraft instrumentation, airport markings, and cabin pressure; thes e are things that we probably know something about but may be unable t o give a satisfactory answer to the inquiring passenger. Although the questions may seem more directed to ward passengers flying on an airlin er, business aircraft crew may find Cronin's book a handy reference to have available to their passengers as well.
