Fundamentals of Air Traffic Control by  Michael Nolan.


Appropriate for both future air traffic controllers and for pilots who need a better understanding of the air traffic control system, this text is the only college-level textbook to explain the “hows” and “whys” of the system. Michael Nolan’s Fundamentals of Air Traffic Control presents a history of air traffic control, with a strong emphasis on the logic that has guided its development. He also provides current, in-depth information on such topics as navigational systems, the air traffic control system structure, control tower procedures, radar separation, national airspace system operation, and the FAA’s restructuring of hiring procedures. The result is an authoritative text that gives readers a true working knowledge of the system–instead of just asking them to memorize lists of rules and regulations.
