Designed as a technical reference for instrument-rated pilots who want to maximize their skills in an "Instrument Flight Rules" environment, the Federal Aviation Administration's Instrument Procedures Handbook contains the most current information on FAA regulations, the latest changes to procedures, and guidance on how to operate safely within the National Airspace System in all conditions. In-depth sections cover takeoffs and departures, en route operations, arrivals and approach, system improvement plans, and helicopter instrument procedures. Thorough safety information covers relevant subjects such as runway incursion, land and hold short operations, controlled flight into terrain, and human factors. Featuring an index, an appendix, a glossary, full-color photos, and illustrations, the Instrument Procedures Handbook is a valuable training aid and reference for pilots, instructors, and flight students, and the most authoritative book on instrument use anywhere.
The Federal Aviation Administration is the national aviation authority of the United States. It regulates and oversees the aviation industry, pilot licensing, and airspace with the goal of providing “the safest, most efficient aerospace system in the world.”
