Everything students need to know to obtain an FAA instrument rating–and a valuable aid to instructors.

Also a great reference source for the instrument pilot needing a refresher, this book by William K. Kershner presents the basics of instrument flying in a manner easy to grasp in its straightforward and conversational writing style, with illustrations that aid understanding. Covered subjects include airplane performance and basic instrument flying, navigation and communications, clearances, planning IFR flight, and carrying out the instrument flight itself from preflight, takeoff and departure, en route, through to the approach and landing phases. This book also helps prepare students for the knowledge and practical tests, with an opportunity to practice a scenario flight–including clearances. A comprehensive “Instrument Rating Syllabus” is provided for the instrument trainee and the CFII, making this textbook a valuable learning source for both to consult while completing the last steps toward obtaining the instrument rating.
