Welcome to the challenging world of instrument flying! Operations under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) are the most common mode of cross-country travel for both general aviation and the airlines. It is, therefore, necessary for IFR pilots to understand thoroughly the functions and limitations of the IFR system, and the procedures therein which must be followed.
The new Instrument Procedures Manual is a thorough revision, with expanded content, to this long-established and ubiquitous title. It provides students, as well as experienced pilots, with information on today’s aircraft, satellite and ground-based instrument systems, departure, enroute and approach procedures, and air traffic control regulations. Every phase of IFR flight is discussed in terms of its safety and efficiency.
Chapters on pilot performance, automation and technology, and international procedures raise this title’s content to new levels, and capture its place as the title of necessity for every student pilot’s initial instrument studies, and for all subsequent instrument pilot reviews.
