The eighth edition of Instrument Flying covers all of the required knowledge and skills outlined in the Airman Certification Standards to pass the FAA Knowledge Exam and checkride for the Instrument Rating, from basic attitude instrument flying to IFR procedures. Students will also learn effective preflight planning, navigation, and meteorology. Clear text and hundreds of full-color illustrations simplify complicated IFR procedures and maneuvers such as holding patterns, intercepting and tracking a course, and flying an approach with crosswinds. This edition has been updated to reflect upgrades to the National Airspace System (NAS) infrastructure, new navigation technologies, and changing weather services available to pilots.
Also included are study questions and answer keys to aid home or classroom study and an extensive glossary of aviation acronyms.
