I just got a copy of “Visualized Flight Maneuvers Handbook” (for high wing aircraft) today and had a chance to take a look at it.
You can consider this book to be a cheat sheet for all the maneuvers you will need to do to get your license. They cover everything from pre-flight to some crazy things you will have to do if you want to become an instructor (like spins, cross control stalls and chandelles).

This book does have an American bias to it (especially the test prep checklists). Overall I feel that this handbook is going to be a good asset to having when trying to visualize some of the maneuvers I will be doing.. and provide a good reference.
I’ve been thinking if it would be possible to start the flying portion of my training before the schooling portion. Specifically if I can start ground school at Buttonville before the Seneca classes start. I’m also thinking of booking a introflight at Buttonville soon as well.. just so that I can ask an instructor some specific questions I have while in actual flight.
Someone today asked me if I wanted to fly “the big jets”. I told him I did, but whether or not its filled with people or cargo, I haven’t decided yet. I think it would be great to fly people all over the world, it’s a lot of responsibility and probably more rewarding than shipping stuff for FedEx.
