Overview

Written by an instrument instructor for instrument pilots

Instrument Flying offers fresh insight into—and distinct ways to remember—10 specific principles designed to calibrate your thinking and lead to safer, better-managed, and less stressful flights. Validated by a cadre of distinguished instructors and pilots, these principles are indispensable given today’s multifaceted instrument settings. Learning and practicing them will help yield more positive, productive, and purposeful flight experiences for you, your passengers, and your fellow aviators.



(From the Preface)

My goal in writing this book was to provide 10 indispensable principles for instrument and IFR flying. Supported by the input of a cadre of distinguished instrument instructors and pilots, I have outlined these principles — and techniques to remember them – because I believe they are critical to ensuring your instrument flights are positive and safe experiences for you and your passengers. Further, I believe you will improve as an instrument pilot if you use these guiding principles as the foundation for your flights.

I have been fortunate to fly with, and to have been in the company of, scores of instrument pilots and instrument instructors who abide by the principles detailed in this book. I wish you the same good fortune. It will change your life forever, and affect the way you approach instrument flying and IFR aviation.
