This official handbook presents current FAA regulations and procedures for instrument-rated pilots operating an aircraft in IFR conditions.
Designed as a technical reference for instrument-rated pilots who want to maximize their skills in an "Instrument Flight Rules" environment, the Federal Aviation Administration's Instrument Procedures Handbook contains the most current information on FAA regulations, the latest changes to procedures. It also offers guidance on how to operate safely within the National Airspace System in all conditions.
In-depth sections cover takeoffs and departures, en route operations, arrivals and approach, system improvement plans, and helicopter instrument procedures. Thorough safety information covers relevant subjects such as runway incursion, land and hold short operations, controlled flight into terrain, and human factors. Featuring an index, an appendix, a glossary, and full-color photos and illustrations, the Instrument Procedures Handbook is a valuable training aid and reference for pilots, instructors, and flight students, and the most authoritative book on instrument use anywhere.
