A step-by-step course covering all knowledge necessary to pass the FAA Instrument Knowledge and Oral Exams, and the IFR checkride. Volume 3 of the series.

Instrument Flying will teach you how to fly IFR with techniques used by experienced and professional pilots, taking advantage of the building-block technique. Master the groundwork required for instrument flight before going through the knowledge and skill required for departure, en route, terminal and approach procedures. Numerous full-color illustrations simplify even those maneuvers perceived to be complicated: holding patterns, intercepting and tracking, flying an NDB approach with crosswinds. All of the tasks from the FAA's Practical Test Standards covered in this text, so instrument students are provided with a solid foundation to obtain and use the instrument rating. Instrument Flying contains up-to-date procedures and tips that could only be gleaned from experts, making it an invaluable reference book for the instrument-rated pilot as well.

Whether you fly for pleasure, business, or a career in aviation, the instrument rating is the pilot's ticket into the full specturm of the airspace system and the key to maximizing the functionality of your pilot certificate. Instrument Flying is the most comprehensive instrument textbook available, covering all of the aeronautical knowledge and skill you need to earn your instrument rating: from basic attitude flying to navigation and meteorology, to the actual IFR maneuvers flown in the air. Thorough review sections hone your knowledge in preparation for the FAA Knowledge Exam, while detailed prose and illustrations prepare you for your oral and flight tests with confidence.

The success of The Pilot's Manual textbook series lies in its remarkable Editorial Team, which includes airline, military and professional pilots, flight instructors, university professors, FAA representatives, meteorologists, members of industry organizations, and designated examiners. The writing is clear, concise, and provides comprehensive information on the practical aspects of flying. Each book has more than 500 pages and at least as many original illustrations and charts.

In addition there are helpful notes in the outside margins for quick definitions of terms, for further emphasis on key points, or explanation of mnemonic devices that, over their many years of experience, the authors have found to be of tremendous benefit to the student. Each chapter closes with review questions highlighting the important facts, and all air work is depicted graphically as well as textually for maximum comprehension. This is the textbook series chosen by universities and colleges.
