Thorough safety information covers relevant subjects such as runway incursion, land and hold short operations, controlled flight into terrain, and human factors. Featuring an index, an appendix, a glossary, full-color photos, and illustrations, the Instrument Procedures Handbook is a valuable training aid and reference for pilots, instructors, and flight students, and the most authoritative book on instrument use anywhere. 300 color illustrations.
