Product Description

All aspiring Instrument Pilots should have a copy of the Airman Certification Standards and an Oral Exam Guide to prepare for the assortment of oral exam questions they may face during their practical test. Unlike most publishers, Gleim combines the Airman Certification Standards (ACS) and the Oral Exam Guide into one convenient, easy-to-use book, the Instrument Pilot ACS and Oral Exam Guide.

The ACS portion is a direct reprint of the most current version of the FAA Instrument Pilot Airman Certification Standards at the time of print. It is followed by a reprint of the Flight Instructor–Instrument Practical Test Standards. This edition includes complete reprints of Instrument Airman Certification Standards FAA-S-ACS-8A and CFII Practical Test Standards FAA-S-8081-9D.

The Oral Exam Guide contains over 650 questions and is easily navigated via the detailed Table of Contents and the comprehensive index. The depth and breadth of these questions will give you a significant advantage as you prepare for your test.


  • Specific content is included for instrument-airplane students and Flight Instructor-Instrument applicants

  • Oral Exam Guide contains over 650 questions
