Whether you're extremely instrument and ATC structure proficient, or need to dust off the cobwebs from the attitude indicator, this book is a must. It's packed with concise sentences and simple graphics to help you maintain knowledge of FAA Regulations, weather reports and forecasts, IFR charts, and the airspace system. Flight planning, takeoff, departures, holding, STARs, and all the approaches are thoroughly covered, including IFR emergency situations. It literally covers everything from flight planning through landing. Additionally, as an added bonus, this book thoroughly reviews the nuances of flying with a GPS and WAAS. There are references throughout to additional short courses offered by AOPA, NASA, and FAA Safety, to help sharpen your instrument flying skills and enhance your aeronautical knowledge. James D Price was born in Tooele, Utah, in 1947. Jim started flying while in college, and received his Private License through Air Force ROTC in 1970 in Provo, Utah. After graduation from Brigham Young University (BYU) and receiving a commission through Air Force ROTC in 1970, Jim attended pilot training at Vance AFB, Enid OK. Upon graduation in 1971, Jim flew Caribous (C-7As), while stationed in Cam Rahn Bay AB and Phu Cat AB, Vietnam. Upon his return to the States, he was stationed at Fairchild AFB, WA, where he flew KC-135A from 1972 to 1976. Jim retired from the military in 1976 and went on to fly commercially on the B-707 as Flight Engineer and Line Check Engineer (Instructor) for Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudia). He joined the Utah Division of Aeronautics in 1978 and worked for Hughes Air West on the B-727, again as Flight Engineer and Line Check Engineer (Instructor). Then from 1980 to 1984, Jim went through an Airline Furlough and Air Force Recall where he worked as a T-38 Instructor Pilot on Vance AFB, Oklahoma. Following this, Jim went back into commercial flying for the next twenty years. He flew for the Hughes Airwest successor, Republic Airlines and its successor, Northwest Airlines, from 1984 to 2005. During that time he was a DC-9 First Officer, A-320 First Officer and Instructor, DC-9 Captain, B-757 Captain, and A-320 Captain. Jim's licenses include CFI-I, MEI and ATP, Air Force Reserves Service, Selfridge Air National Guard Base, C-130A, C-130E, KC-135E. Jim was again called to Active Duty for 6 1/2 months during the Gulf War in 1990 and 1991. He was stationed at Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, where he flew C-130. Jim's final retirement from the military as a Colonel and Vice Commander of the 927 Air Refueling Wing at Selfridge ANGB, Michigan. After retiring from his commercial flying career, Jim began writing pilot study guides and logs to help private aircraft owners track their aircraft's usage and expenses. He and his wife Gerry own a Mooney M20C. He has been a command pilot with Angel Flight West flying patients to and from medical treatments throughout the southwest. He is a Mooney Aircraft Pilot Association Safety Foundation instructor and serves the county as a Sheriff's Posse pilo
For pilot certification and flight review, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires oral as well as written exams for pilot certification. An Instrument Rating can be added to the Private Pilot or Commercial Pilot Rating and requires special training. This guide provides the most consistent questions asked of an Instrument Pilot applicant in the instrument competency check. Immediately following each question is a reference to the specific information source from which the answer may be derived. Questions are divided into four sections with many subtopics: flight planning, departure, en route, and arrival. This edition has been updated to reflect important FAA regulatory, procedural, and training changes.
Written to help prepare pilot-license applicants for their oral exams with FAA examiners, this manual lists the questions most likely to be asked by examiners and provides succinct responses. This reference teaches applicants not only what to expect, but also how to exhibit subject mastery and confidence when under the examiner’s scrutiny. It also identifies the applicants' strengths, weaknesses, and gaps in their aeronautical knowledge, which increases study efficiency. This study guide is divided into four question-and-answer sections which examine flight planning, departure, en route, and arrival issues. Subtopics covered include preflight action for aircraft, the gyroscopic system, fundamentals of weather, and precision approaches. Revised to reflect important FAA regulatory, procedural, and training changes, this book has a new appendix detailing the Instrument Proficiency Check and an Internet element that provides additional tools and resources.
NOTE: NO FURTHER DISCOUNT FOR THIS PRINT PRODUCT--OVERSTOCK SALE -- Significantly reduced list price Designed for use by instrument flight instructors and pilots preparing for instrument rating tests. Instructors may find this handbook a valuable training aid as it includes basic reference material for knowledge testing and instrument flight training. This handbook conforms to pilot training and certification concepts established by the US Federal Aviation Administration. This resource adopts selected methods and concepts for instrument flying. The discussion and explanations reflect the most commonly used practices and principles. Occasionally the word "MUST" or similar language is used where the desired action is deemed critical. The use of such language is not intended to add to, interpret, or relieve a duty imposed by the United States Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14CFR). All of the aeronautical knowledge and skills required to operate in instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) are detailed. Chapters are dedicated to human and aerodynamic factors affecting instrument flight, the flight instruments, attitude instrument flying for airplanes, basic flight maneuvers used in IMC, attitude flying for helicopters, navigation systems, the National Airspace System (NAS), the air traffic control (ATC) system, instrument flight rules (IFR) flight procedures, and IFR emergencies. Clearance shorthand and integrated instrument lesson guide are also included.

Canada is a global aviation powerhouse. Thanks to the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan during World War II, as well as its internationally-recognized reputation enabling an important and meaningful bridge among the nations of the world after the war, Canada — called the Aerodrome of Democracy by President Franklin D. Roosevelt — was chosen as the host of the headquarters of the United Nations’ International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and influential International Air Transport Association (IATA), and has become the third-largest aerospace hub in the world. Today, thousands of Canadian aviation professionals specializing in engineering, management, finance, sales, flight operations, academics, flight training, tax, and law staff the ICAO, IATA, governmental agencies, airline companies, law and aircraft leasing firms, universities, and gigantic aerospace corporations. This Canadian expertise also resonates in today’s global training pipeline of highly skilled professionals operating winged-tubes loaded with thousands of gallons of kerosene fuelling complex and powerful engine systems in the lower levels of the stratosphere to carry passengers and/or cargo across intercontinental airways. Canadian Air Law for Pilots is entirely dedicated to pilots; its purpose is twofold: (1) to highlight the landmark Canadian legislative framework relative to aviation law, and provide an extensive review of federal decision-makers affecting pilots’ privileges, rights, and interests by reporting on their purposes, procedural rules, as well as key case law within administrative and penal law; and (2) to outline Canada’s air law for local and international applicants and trainees interested in obtaining pilot permits, licences or ratings (aeroplanes) issued by Transport Canada. This textbook is divided into four parts: Part I: Administrative Law Part II: Penal Law Part III: Aircraft in Canada Part IV: Air Law
