Overview

All the aeronautical knowledge required to pass the FAA exams, IFR checkride, and operate as an Instrument-Rated pilot. Volume 3 of the series. Download the FREE Instrument Rating syllabus to use with this text.

An Instrument Rating opens new doors—enabling a pilot to fly more, day or night, in clear or cloudy weather. A pilot with an Instrument Rating is a skilled aviator who has demonstrated mastery of the airplane’s instrument systems and can use preflight and enroute information, aeronautical decision making (ADM), and their knowledge of procedures and regulations to execute a safe flight. The Pilot’s Manual: Instrument Flying provides everything a pilot needs to earn their Instrument Rating and fly safely under instrument flight rules (IFR) and in instrument meteorological conditions (IMC).

The eighth edition of Instrument Flying covers all of the required knowledge and skills outlined in the Airman Certification Standards to pass the FAA Knowledge Exam and checkride for the Instrument Rating, from basic attitude instrument flying to IFR procedures. Students will also learn effective preflight planning, navigation, and meteorology. Clear text and hundreds of full-color illustrations simplify complicated IFR procedures and maneuvers such as holding patterns, intercepting and tracking a course, and flying an approach with crosswinds. This edition has been updated to reflect upgrades to the National Airspace System (NAS) infrastructure, new navigation technologies, and changing weather services available to pilots.

Also included are study questions and answer keys to aid home or classroom study and an extensive glossary of aviation acronyms.

Foreword by Barry Schiff. This book is part of The Pilot’s Manual Series—used by leading universities as their standard classroom texts.
