FAA-H-8083-15B

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 edition features information applicable to both conventional steam-gauge instrumentation as well as glass cockpits found in technically advanced aircraft. 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 glass cockpit. Approx. 392 pages, paperback.
