This primary FAA source handbook for the Knowledge Exams covers the IFR
system as well as aerodynamics, flight instrumentation, attitude flying and
navigation as they apply to the instrument pilot.
This new edition features information applicable to both conventional
steam-gauge instrumentation as well as glass cockpits found in technically
advanced aircraft (TAA). The new information is well separated from the
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 FAA/Industry Training Standards (FITS) tenets
such as single-pilot resource management, scenario-based training, and
learner-centered grading. Hazard identification, as well as task management,
automation management, and risk management supplement the human factors
discussion. The chapters on attitude instrument flying and basic flight
maneuvers are split into separate sections dedicated to analog instrumentation
and electronic flight displays. The chapter on emergency operations has been
expanded to include the failures applicable to operating a TAA.
Includes an instrument rating training syllabus, a clearance shorthand
appendix, and a comprehensive glossary and index.
Soft cover, 392 pages, illustrated in full color.
