Overview

The primary purpose of Instrument Pilot FAA Written Exam is to provide you with the easiest, fastest, and least expensive means of passing the FAA Instrument Rating - Airplane (IRA) knowledge test, which is required before you can take your instrument rating practical (flight) test.

Additionally, this book can be used in preparation for the following FAA knowledge tests:

  • Flight Instructor - Instrument - Airplane (FII), which is required for a flight instructor to add an instrument rating to his/her flight instructor certificate.
  • Instrument Ground Instructor (IGI), which is required for a person desiring to teach instrument procedures as a ground (classroom) instructor.
  • Instrument Rating - Foreign Pilot (IFP), which is required for a pilot who holds an instrument rating on a U.S. private rating on a foreign pilot license and wants an instrument pilot certificate issued on the basis of the foreign pilot license.
  • Flight Instructor - Instrument - Airplane - Added Rating (AIF), which is required if a flight instructor has an instrument (helicopter) rating on his/her flight instructor certificate and desires to add an instrument (airplane) rating to that certificate.

We change the FAA knowledge (written) test process from a memorization marathon to a learning opportunity and experience. You get higher test scores in less study time. Seven of the major differences between our Instrument Pilot FAA Written Exam book and most other available books are only airplane-related questions and study materials are included in our books.

Comprehensive explanations of each question are provided, including explanations of why each answer is incorrect.

Answer explanations are NEXT to each question, NOT at the back of the book. All FAA test questions are reorganized into logical topics. (FARs, weather, navigation, etc.)

We provide outlines explaining the concepts tested at the beginning of each chapter so you can study and learn the material before you answer and study the test questions. A detailed index assists you in finding topics and questions you wish to study. We provide practice tests using the FAA's mix of question topics.

Example Gleim question: How long is a cockpit voice recorder and flight recorder data kept, in the event of an accident or occurrence resulting in terminating the flight?

A- 60 days
B- 90 days
C- 30 days

Answer (A) is correct.

In the event of an accident or occurrence that results in the termination of the flight, any operator who has installed approved flight recorders and cockpit voice recorders shall keep the recorded information for at least 60 days or, if requested by the FAA or the NTSB, for a longer period.

Answer (B) is incorrect because the information need be kept for only 60 days, not 90 days. Answer (C) is incorrect because the information must be kept for a minimum of 60 days, not 30 days.
