A definitive reference text for the Instrument Rating FAA Knowledge exam, this resource features information applicable to both conventional steam-gauge instrumentation as well as the glass cockpits found in technically advanced aircraft (TAA). Information on the latest technological developments complements 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 the FAA/Industry Training Standards (FITS) tenets, including single-pilot resource management, scenario-based training, and learner-centered grading. Hazard identification, as well as task management, automation management, and risk management supplement a discussion on pilot factors. Featuring a comprehensive glossary and index, an appendix on clearance shorthand, and an instrument-rating training syllabus, this book presents all the information necessary to pass the exam.

Fly toward pilot certification with these real-world scenario exercises Although PC-based flight simulations have been available for 30 years, many pilots, instructors, and flight schools don't understand how best to use these tools in real-world flight training and pilot proficiency programs. This invaluable reference bridges the gap between simulation tools and real-world situations by presenting hands-on, scenario-based exercises and training tips for the private pilot certificate and instrument rating. As the first of its kind based on FAA-Industry Training Standards (FITS), this book steers its focus on a scenario-based curriculum that emphasizes real-world situations. Experienced pilot and author Bruce Williams ultimately aims to engage the pilot, reinforce the "realistic" selling point of PC-based flight simulations, while also complementing the FAA-approved FITS syllabi. Serves as essential reading for pilots who want to make effective use of simulation in their training while expanding their skill level and enjoyment of flying Covers private pilot real-world scenarios and instrument rating scenarios Includes a guide to recommended websites and other resources Features helpful charts as well as a glossary You'll take off towards pilot certification with this invaluable book by your side.

Recognition of this and sound weather decisions are critical to the successful outcome of all flights. This book discusses each aspect of weather as it relates to aircraft operation and flight safety. The information in Aviation Weather is applicable to students, instructors, and experienced pilots alike. It is a comprehensive resource for what you need to know about weather in order to fly safely in both visual (VMC) and instrument (IMC) meteorological conditions. Subjects covered include the earth's atmosphere, temperatures, atmospheric pressure and altimetry, wind, moisture, precipitation, clouds, air masses and fronts, turbulence, icing, thunderstorms, common IFR producers, high altitude weather, arctic and tropical weather, and soaring weather. Illustrations throughout; also includes a glossary and index.

In this unique and instructive book, veteran IFR pilot Richard L. Collins takes the right seat beside Patrick E. Bradley to demonstrate effective ways to grasp and solve IFR problems and eliminate uncertainties that may plague even current IFR airmen. Bradley, a relatively new IFR pilot, discusses the concerns and errors he has shared with most instrument fliers who are new or rusty. Collins then applies his own experiences and methods, including some lessons learned the hard way, and carefully examines airline and general aviation accidents to point out how threatening situations can be avoided or safely confronted. IFR is a thinking game, and the authors emphasize ways of avoiding mental lapses that can turn simple difficulties into lethal crises: --Making sure you’re fuel-safe when your destination is at minimums. --Recognizing and thinking through the dangers of nighttime and circling approaches. --Shifting strategies and tactics when the winds aloft misbehave. --Avoiding the traps of the missed approach: before, during, and after. --Choosing right when you’re number one for takeoff and a thunderstorm is approaching the field. --Staying on top of equipment needs, quirks, and failures.
