Whether you fly for pleasure, business, or are seeking a career in aviation, the Instrument Rating is your ticket into the full spectrum of the airspace system and the key to maximizing the functionality of your pilot certificate. This book provides everything you need to know to safely fly under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) and in Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC).

Instrument Flying covers all the needed aeronautical knowledge and skill, from basic attitude flying to navigation, meteorology, and the actual IFR maneuvers flown in the air. You will master the preflight preparations required for instrument flight before learning IFR departure, en route, terminal and approach procedures. Both conventional “steam gauge” and glass cockpit instruments are covered. The eighth edition of this comprehensive textbook has been updated to reflect current rules, procedures, and FAA Airman Certification Standards.

Hundreds of full-color illustrations simplify even those procedures perceived to be complicated, such as holding patterns, intercepting and tracking, and flying an approach with crosswinds. Thorough review sections at the end of each chapter hone your knowledge. Helpful notes in the margins provide quick definitions of terms, further emphasis on key points, or explanation of mnemonic devices that can be of tremendous benefit to study.
