About the Author
Danielle Bruckert and Oleg Roud are professional pilots, instructors and examiners on the Cessna series of aircraft they write about. They now both fly for airlines, however both remain active in general aviation, providing instruction and check flights on light aircraft. Oleg began flying fighter and transport jets in the Former Soviet military, immigrating to Southern Africa after the collapse, to fly charter operations mainly on the Cessna aircraft, and airline operations on the Beech 1900 and Embraer 135. Danielle began flight training in New Zealand, and left for africa to gain experience in charter operations on Cessna singles and twins, and later joined the national airline in Namibia, flying the Beech 1900 and Boeing 737. Their motivation to write the books was to improve training and thus operating standards in the general aviation sector (the non-airline civil aviation sector), especially for light aircraft in private and charter operations. Training has been identified by the FAA, and other civil aviation authorities, as a major cause of light aircraft accidents, Oleg and Danielle hope the Cessna Training Manual series will help to improve training standards by improving the information available for pilots. Oleg and Danielle based the Cessna Training Manuals format on the progression of a typical training syllabus and information normally provided for training on larger aircraft, where there is stricter control over standards.
