A training manual for pilots who want to obtain an instrument rating and for pilots who are already rated and want a refresher. Addressed to general aviation pilots, so based on standard general aircraft rather than jets and high-altitude planes. First published in 1967 and updated here from the 1990 edition with the current FAR 61.65 requirements, the conversion to the METAR/TAF weather reporting and forecasting system, and information on the global positioning system. Highly illustrated in black and white. Includes an extensive and detailed glossary without pronunciation. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
A study guide for single engine pilots preparing to obtain an FAA instrument rating. The manual describes flight and engine instruments, basic instrument flying, navigational aids, communications with ATC, weather systems, charts, and an example flight. The sixth edition adds a course syllabus, and omits the sample test and glossary. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
