In Northern Europe it is rare to see two consecutive days when the weather is perfect for flight without reference to instruments. If a pilot wants to operate in the greatest variety of weather conditions and airspace, he must be capable of interpreting the instruments and must know and understand the procedures that have been designed to safely transport an aircraft and its passengers from one airport to another, in even the most difficult of weather conditions and exacting of airspace.
This book is principally intended to help prepare a pilot to pass first time what is regarded as the most demanding flight test in the world, the JAA Instrument Rating. It will also provide some useful tips for general instrument flying, and will be a handy reference manual for pilots looking to renew their instrument qualifications.
Today a pilot must know and understand the procedures that have been designed to safely transport an aircraft and its passengers from one airport to another, even in the most difficult and demanding weather conditions in airspace. This requires instrument flight control.
Excellent manual equipped with aeronautical charts, conversion tables, and photographs of flight instruments, approximation sheets and aerodrome diagrams. Illustrated with numerous exercises that facilitate learning.
It provides useful tips for instrument flight in general, but it is also a useful reference manual for pilots who wish to renew their instrumental qualifications.
David Hoy has been involved in flight training for almost thirty years and spent most of that time specializing in training for the instrument Rating. David is based in Oxford where he works as Manager, Instructor Training, responsible for the conversion training of new flying instructors.
