Instrument Flying Handbook

Instrument Flying Handbook Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Federal Aviation Administration's Instrument Flying Handbook provides pilots, student pilots, aviation instructors, and controllers with the knowledge and skills required to operate in instrument meteorological conditions.

Illustrated with full-color graphics and photographs, topics covered include basic atmospheric science, the air traffic control system, spatial disorientation and optical illusions, flight support systems, and emergency responses. The book's two appendixes contain information on clearance shorthand and an instrument training lesson guide. Readers will also find a handy glossary and index. Since many questions on FAA exams are taken directly from the information presented in this text, the Instrument Flying Handbook is a great study guide for potential pilots looking for certification, and a perfect gift for any aircraft or aeronautical buff.

Synopsis:

An invaluable resource for instrument flight instructors, pilots, and students.
