A manual for pilots seeking to add an instrument rating and for instrument-rated pilots needing a refresher, this guide covers airplane performance and basic instrument flying, navigation and communications, clearances, planning the instrument flight, and executing instrument flight—from preflight and departure to the approach and landing phases. Presenting the basics of instrument flying, this well-illustrated resource concludes with information to prepare for the FAA knowledge and practical tests. A comprehensive "Instrument Rating Syllabus" is provided for the instrument trainee and instrument flight instructor, significant time is devoted to dealing with air traffic control, and explanations for operating an airplane in instrument meteorological conditions is included.
