Overview

ROD MACHADO'S INSTRUMENT PILOT'S SURVIVAL MANUAL

Note:
The Instrument Pilot's Survival Manual is intended primarily as a book to learn IFR flying skills. The Instrument Flying Handbook is intended to provide the broad based knowledge necessarily to fly IFR safely and competently.

This unique book contains a wealth of interesting and exciting information on instrument flying. Rod's 34 years of flying experience makes this an important resource.

Here's Some of What's Inside:

  • Scanning, Ice, Thunderstorm Avoidance
  • Jep & NACO (Government) Chart Usage
  • Pro thinking Skills
  • IFR Departure Skills
  • Cockpit Management
  • GPS Chart Construction
  • Flying GPS approaches and Much More.

This book is unlike any other book on instrument flying you have encountered. It's based on Rod's popular IFR refresher course and contains answers to questions that concern the neophyte and the professional instrument pilot. Questions like:

  • How do you know if a cloud contains a thunderstorm?
  • How can you use Center & ASR-9 radar to avoid ice
    and convective activity?
  • Is there a good way to estimate visibility while at DH or MDA?
  • Can I increase the efficiency of my scan and reduce my cockpit workload?
  • How do I interpret and use all those symbols on approach charts?
  • How do I interpret GPS approach charts?
  • How do I fly GPS approaches?
  • And much, much more
