Fully authorised and supported by Heathrow, the Haynes Heathrow Airport Manual takes the reader behind the scenes of the world's busiest airport, investigating all aspects of its organisation.

The author covers airport management, runways, terminals, air traffic control and airport operations, including fuelling, baggage services, freight, passenger services, retail, engineering, emergency services, ground transportation systems, security, meteorology, simulator training and telecommunications. This is a fascinating subject, ripe for the Haynes Manual treatment.

About the Author

Robert Wicks is the author of four books for Haynes in the Adventure Motorcycling series. A self-confessed aviation enthusiast, Robert initially moved to the UK from South Africa in 1987 to join the Army Air Corps. He is a qualified paragliding pilot and has taken the first steps towards gaining his Private Pilot's Licence. Robert is a prolific traveller, having passed through Heathrow more than 500 times on work and leisure trips in the past 12 years. He lives in Berkshire.




This was a gift for an aircraft nutter friend of mine, who thrives on this sort of book. He is in a plane spotting club and shares the book and it's facts with so many of his friends. A perfect gift for such a person. Brilliant, reliable service from Booktopia. Thanks a million. Rob Hill
