New Book Helps Pilots Get the Most from Flying Cessna 210s
Available digitally and in print, this new book is dedicated to helping all who own or want to fly a Cessna 210 master the art of piloting this complex airplane. Created by five-time Master CFI Chuck McGill bolstered through thousands of hours of flying and instructing in all 210 models, its chapters are filled with facts, tips and techniques to help anyone command the Centurion for best performance and safety.

SAN DIEGO, CA – Just released is an all-new primer on owning and flying the Cessna 210 Centurion. Entitled “Flying the Cessna 210: The Secrets Unlocked,” author Chuck McGill covers the wide gamut of 210 models, accessories, and modifications offering insight on optimum performance and safe operations based on thousands of hours flying and teaching in the airplane.
Available digitally and in print, the book is dedicated to helping all who own or want to fly a Cessna 210 master the art of safely and efficiently piloting this complex airplane.
“What really inspired me to do write this book was the hundreds of pilots I’ve trained, so many of whom have said they so appreciated how much more they got out of their airplanes from the experiences and techniques they  learned,” said McGill. Chuck McGill is a five-time Master CFI with over 12,000 hours of flight experience. He has more than 4,000 hours flying and instructing in all 210 models, including flying his own T-210 round trip from Southern California to Europe.
Based on the author’s extensive experience, the book contains a broad offering of insights and techniques designed to help the pilot get the most from safely flying the Centurion. “So often,” says McGill, “people purchase complex go-fast airplanes but don’t have a good understanding of the airplane’s systems and flight characteristics. I’ve written this book to extend pilots’ knowledge far beyond a POH and to help them get optimum performance, safety, and longevity from their airplanes.”
One of McGill’s 210 students came away from instruction and the new book saying, “You will be asking yourself: ‘How did I fly this airplane without knowing all these things and without these skills?’”
While offering some background on the C-210, T-210, and P-210, the book is much less about history and mechanics, focusing instead on systems and operations. Its 11 chapters and extensive Appendix offer insight into common operational issues during pre-flight, taxi, take-off, climb, cruise, descent, and landing operations unique to each model of the 210. Additionally, it goes a long way to help pilots of airplanes with STC’d mods, accessories, and new avionics understand how those enhancements can be best used to make the most of safe flight operations.
