About the Author

Gary V. Bristow is an airline pilot who was inspired to write the Encyclopedia of Technical Aviation while training and working as an airline pilot. During that time, Bristow realized his sources for information were not always readily available, and set about to compile and write a centralized, easy-to-use guide for aviation professionals and enthusiasts. This book is the result of that inspiration. Bristow’s first book, Ace the Technical Pilot Interview, was published by McGraw-Hill in April 2002.
