The Instrument Procedures Handbook may be considered as Part 2 of a complete instrument flying ground school curricullum, (along with Instrument Flying Handbook 8083-15A) expanding on it to the actual in-cockpit operational procedures.

The Procedures Handbook provides detailed coverage of instrument charts and procedures including IFR takeoff, departure, enroute, approach and landing. Safety information covering subjects such as runway incursion, land and hold short operations, CFIT, and human factors are covered. The text emphasizes airplane operations but also includes guidelines for helicopter instrument procedures.

Also included are guidelines and insights into the rapidly evolving IFR environment including new technologies such as: Global Positioning System (GPS), Local and Wide Area Augmentation System (LAAS & WAAS), Reduced Vertical Separation Minimums (RVSM) and more.
