Synopses & Reviews
A definitive reference text for the Instrument Rating FAA Knowledge exam, this resource features information applicable to both conventional steam-gauge instrumentation as well as the glass cockpits found in technically advanced aircraft (TAA). Information on the latest technological developments complements traditional discussions of the "6-pack" and covers flight-support systems (AHRS and ADC), pictorial displays, flight-management systems (FMS), primary-flight display (PFD), and multi-function display (MFD), synthetic vision, advanced technology systems such as ADS, and safety systems such as traffic advisory systems. Also incorporated are the FAA/Industry Training Standards (FITS) tenets, including single-pilot resource management, scenario-based training, and learner-centered grading. Hazard identification, as well as task management, automation management, and risk management supplement a discussion on pilot factors. Featuring a comprehensive glossary and index, an appendix on clearance shorthand, and an instrument-rating training syllabus, this book presents all the information necessary to pass the exam.
An invaluable resource for instrument flight instructors, pilots, and students.
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. 300 color illustrations.
This series of textbooks and supplements for pilots, student pilots, aviation instructors, and aviation specialists provides information on every topic needed to qualify for and excel in the field of aviation. Most FAA Knowledge Exams questions are taken directly from the information presented in these texts.
Written for applicants preparing for an Airplane or Helicopter Instrument Rating, this book is also valuable to instrument flight instructors (CFII) and already-rated pilots who would like to refresh their skills. It is the official source for all instrument questions appearing on the FAA knowledge exams. This is FAA handbook FAA-H-8083-15.
