All of the aeronautical knowledge and skill needed to earn the Instrument Rating certificate are covered in this guide, from basic flying and navigation techniques to meteorology and instrument flight rule (IFR) maneuvers. Thorough review sections help hone knowledge in preparation for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Knowledge Exam, while detailed text and illustrations prepare pilots for the oral and flight tests. The knowledge and skills required for preflight preparations as well as those required for departure, en route, terminal, and approach procedures are thoroughly covered. Numerous, full-color illustrations simplify maneuvers perceived to be complicated, such as holding patterns, intercepting and tracking, and flying approaches with crosswinds. With all of the tasks required by the FAA covered in this text, instrument students are provided with a solid foundation to obtain and use the instrument rating.

Hands down the best reference I've seen for practical IFR.

It covers pretty much everything you'd ever need to know. What to do and how to do it, from the theory of it all the way to the practical 'in the cockpit' methods that make all of the complex mental gymnastics simple.

If you want to develop a solid foundation for your IFR ticket, and a have a go to resource after you've obtained it, this is the book to use.

As noted elsewhere, if you're just trying to pass the written, grab a Gleim. But for everything you REALLY need to know to put all of that to use, get this book.

It made a world of difference for me on the way to my Commercial rating.

I was disappointed that this book is still being offered. I quickly discovered that GPS instrument navigation is not covered because it wasn't available when this book was last published in 2000. The book is otherwise comprehensive and well written. It just needs to be updated to match today's navigation technology.

Great book, worth the money. Very well written, professional and comprehensive. I recommend it to all beginners as well as to experienced pilots to refresh their knowledge.
