The Pilot’s Radio Handbook by Dietlind Lempp is easy to read textbook for aspirant pilots needing to acquire the knowledge and skills for radio communication. It is the definitive South African reference work on aeronautical radio procedures and an essential handbook for passing the exams for both the Restricted and the General Radio Telephony Certificates for pilots, be they flying aeroplanes, helicopters, gliders, light sport aircraft, drones or any other flying machine.

The Pilot’s Radio Handbook is now in its 19th edition and has sold over 50 000 copies. It is regarded as the definitive South African reference work on radio procedures for pilots. While there are other study guides on the market, no other book explains the Air Traffic Control system as well as this one does and helps the pilot to be more proficient.

Its appendices and additional sections provide a wealth of information useful to pilots for flight planning, checking communications and navigational frequencies and a whole lot more. It’s the kind of book all pilots should carry in their flight bags.
