Publisher Comments:

``I recommend it to any pilot who wishes to be at their best in the instrument system.--John L. Baker, former president fo the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. Ever since the pioneering days of Jimmy Doolittle, pilots have been able to take off, fly, and land without seeing a thing. But you have to be a proficient instrument pilot to pull it off successfully. Instrument Flying is the bible of IFR flight. This latest edition has complete, up-to-date information about every facet of instrument flying, from airways to Zulu time. It provides any pilot, from novice to old hand, with all that is needed to sharpen pilot skills at ``flying blind and to handle any emergency. It features: explanation of the VOR system, RNAV, Loran, and GPS navigation; a complete glossary of terms and abbreviations; valuable proficiency exercises; preflight checklists; case histories of pilots who were involved in IFR accidents. Taylor covers recent developments in IFR technology, new IFR terms, and advances in flight systems and equipment. Climb to and maintain a higher level of efficiency and safety--become a good instrument pilot.

Synopsis:

The fourth edition of the perennial best-seller. Fully updated, with everything the private pilot needs to know about flying IFR, such as handling emergencies, filing flight plans, understanding IFR communications, navigating, and flying more efficiently. Polish and improve your instrument-flight skills with the proficiency exercises. Glossary of aviation terms included.
