Instrument Flying will teach you how to fly IFR with techniques from experienced and professional pilots, taking advantage of the building-block technique.
Master the groundwork required for instrument flight before going through the knowledge and skill required for departure, en route, terminal and approach procedures. Numerous full-color illustrations simplify even those maneuvers perceived to be complicated: holding patterns, intercepting and tracking, flying an NDB approach with crosswinds.
Whether you fly for pleasure, business, or a career in aviation, the instrument rating is the pilot's ticket into the full spectrum of the airspace system and the key to maximizing the functionality of your pilot certificate. Instrument Flying is the most comprehensive instrument textbook available, covering all aeronautical knowledge and skill needed for the instrument rating: from basic attitude flying to navigation and meteorology, to the actual IFR maneuvers flown in the air.
All of the tasks from the FAA's Practical Test Standards are covered in this text, giving instrument students a solid foundation for the instrument rating. Thorough review sections at the end of each chapter hone your knowledge in preparation for the FAA Knowledge Exam, while detailed prose and illustrations prepare you for your oral and flight tests with confidence.
The success of The Pilot's Manual textbook series lies in its remarkable Editorial Team, which includes airline, military and professional pilots, flight instructors, university professors, FAA representatives, meteorologists, members of industry organizations, and designated examiners.
All air work is depicted graphically as well as textually for maximum comprehension. This is the textbook series chosen by universities and colleges.
