Overview


Providing aviators with comprehensive information on the advanced avionics equipment available in technically sophisticated aircraft, this FAA handbook covers a wide range of subjects about the essentials of operating cockpit-computers. Each phase of flight is covered, ensuring readers will know how to execute departure, en route, and approach procedures using glass cockpit instrumentation.

Readers will learn the “knob-ology” associated with operating cockpit-computers, including data entry, maintaining current databases, and accessing information from the various screens. Common pilot errors, catching those errors, and instrument failures are discussed, as well as recommendations for using standby instruments during both normal and emergency operations.

Subjects covered include the Primary Flight Display (PFD), Multi-Function Display (MFD), moving maps, terrain, cockpit weather, traffic data, fuel management systems, and electronic charts and checklists. Essential skills checklists and summaries conclude each chapter for a comprehensive review and quick-check reference.
