Currently seeking a book or manual that teaches a civilian how a cargo aircraft operates and what it's pilots do, say a 787. Preferably a high-level overview at a per flight phase:
- Pre-flight: Flight planning, aircraft checkout (airworthiness), maintenance checking, taxing, ATC communication, etc
- Take-off: What do pilots look at during take-off: engine parameters (torque?), airspeed, etc.
- Cruise: What do pilots moderate during cruise? What are they doing to prepare for landing?
- Landing: Again, what parameters are they looking at, and how often are they looking down? How and what are they communicating to ATC?
- Post-flight: What happens to the aircraft? What maintenance is done on the aircraft? What are they doing while they await instructions from ATC? What reports are looked at.
I understand that this is a lot of information to ask for from one book but I am willing to do a lot of reading, from various sources. Any help in answers these questions would be greatly appreciated as well. Young engineer in the aerospace industry and I'd like to learn more.
