Building your library.

The RAF Safety and Education Committee promotes safe flying through continuing education and training. While we do not endorse specific sources of information or training, we recommend that pilots continually educate themselves. To help pilots build a library of knowledge, we provide the following resources as a starting point.  If you have suggestions to add to this library please email Tom Haefeli at thaefeli@theraf.org.
