Instrument Procedures Handbook: FAA-H-8261-1a (FAA Handbooks) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the FAA's Instrument Procedures Handbook (#FAA-H-8261-1A) the emphasis is placed on operations and procedural information for real-world use, which makes this the next logical step for pilots after learning basic instrument skills from the Instrument Flying Handbook (#FAA-H-8083-15B). Using this book, pilots can more directly apply the concepts to their current flying situation, and learn how their acquired skills are best used in todays IFR environment.

Considered industry-wide as a top source for instrument procedures information and a “must read” for all instrument pilots, this 2007 Edition brings pilots the latest changes to procedures and even more insights and guidance on how to operate safely within the National Airspace System. Detailed information is provided for every navigation receiver and phase of flight on the required precision necessary to stay within protected airspace and to make a successful approach. The text emphasizes airplane operations, and includes a new chapter dedicated to helicopter instrument procedures.

With the increased occurrence of regulatory changes, pilots must be aware of current procedures. This book covers all of the information needed to operate safely within the National Airspace System. In-depth sections on instrument charts and procedures cover all phases of flight from takeoff to landing, including safety of flight issues such as runway incursions and controlled flight into terrain (CFIT). Each topic covered is well-detailed and explained in user-friendly terms, along with full-color depictions to aid understanding.

The Instrument Procedures Handbook was intended primarily as a technical reference for professional pilots. However, with the specialized glossary, index, full-color illustrations and photographs, flight instructors, instrument pilots and instrument students alike will find it a valuable training aid. The wealth of information provided in this book is invaluable to everyone who operates under instrument flight rules (IFR).

This FAA Handbook contains straightforward discussions and explanations for:

Operations in the National Airspace System

Detailed coverage of instrument charts

Instrument procedural information for: takeoff, departure, en route, arrival, approach and landing

Human factors

Land and hold short operations (LAHSO)

Runway incursion information

Controlled flight into terrain (CFIT)

Helicopter instrument procedures

Whether a pilot is a seasoned professional or recently completed an Instrument Rating course, the Instrument Procedures Handbook is sure to encourage more precise instrument techniques and ultimately create a safer pilot. Used as a reference in the FAA Knowledge Exams and Practical Test Standards.

Synopsis:

An excellent resource for instrument-rated pilots who want to learn how to maximize their skills in an instrument flight rules environment, this handbook contains up-to-date information, the latest changes to procedures, and even more insights and guidance on how to operate safely within the National Airspace System. For every navigation receiver and phase of flight, this book details the required precision needed to stay within protected airspace and make a successful approach to landing. Safety information for relevant subjects such as runway incursion, land and hold short operations, and controlled flight into terrain are covered here, and in-depth sections discuss all phases of flight from takeoff to landing, including detailed coverage of instrument charts; takeoff, en route, approach, and landing procedures; and airspace and airport system improvement plans. A chapter dedicated to helicopter instrument procedures is also provided. Intended primarily as a technical reference for professional pilots, the added glossary, index, and full-color photos and illustrations make this a valuable training aid for flight instructors, instrument pilots, and students preparing for checkrides.
