FAA-H-8083-15B

This is the FAA's primary pilot resource for instrument flight rules (IFR) covering everything pertinent to operating an aircraft in instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) or without reference to outside visuals, relying solely on the information gleaned from the cockpit. Readers will find chapters on the national airspace system, the air traffic control system, human factors, aerodynamics, flight instruments, flight maneuvers for IFR operations, navigation, emergency operations, as well as helicopter operations and more.

The material in this manual applies to both conventional "steam-gauge" analog instrumentation and the "glass cockpit" electronic flight displays found in advanced aircraft. Information is well organized into separate coverage of the traditional "6-pack" and discussions of pictorial "tape" displays. Advanced systems are covered, including flight management systems, the primary flight display (PFD) and multi-function display (MFD), synthetic vision, and traffic advisory systems. The book also features a synopsis of instrument clearance shorthand, as well as an instrument training lesson guide.

The Instrument Flying Handbook is designed for use by flight instructors, pilots preparing for the Instrument Rating FAA Knowledge and Practical Exams, and instrument-rated pilots looking for a refresher or preparing for an Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC). Illustrated throughout with detailed, full-color drawings and photographs; comprehensive glossary and index.

Approx. 368 pages, full color. Effective 2012.

Pros: This book is an excellent resource to maintain IFR flight skills that tend to degrade over time due to non-use. I find that this book clearly re-emphasizes what I have forgotten, in a clear and concise way Cons: None

Pros: Good to have for instrument study and reference. While the volume is available as a free download from the FAA, a print copy can be marked up for study, and used as a ready reference.

Pros: It has many pictures Cons: It does a poor job of explaining the concepts/ details needed in preparation for an instrument written exam. If you are preparing for an instrument written exam, do not waste your time and money on this book. Instead get the most recent ASA instrument test prep book and the ASA Pilot's Manual - Instrument Flying book. These two books (plus the most recent FAR/ AIM) do a much better job of focusing your attention on what you need to know for the exam (as opposed to what might be nice to know) and in explaining the details.
