IFR operations and procedural handbook for real-world use; explains for instrument-rated pilots how best to use the system they've been trained for.
Primary reference text for the Instrument Rating FAA Knowledge Exam.
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.
With the Jeppesen EASA ATPL - Instrumentation text, you'll take a closer look at how to present flight and navigation data to your crew. Instrumentation provides an overview on construction and function of sensor and systems. This volume will present the instrument screens and help pilots interpreting and properly sense possible malfunctions. Always up to date, printed on demand and using QR codes to provide animated graphics, this book presents this knowledge step-by-step.
Aircraft Instruments and Integrated Systems provides a wealth of unique information covering all aspects of operating principles and constructional features of the instrumentation and integrated systems required for the flight handling and navigation of aircraft, and also for the performance monitoring of their relevant powerplants. The text is liberally illustrated with schematic diagrams, colour and black and white photographs and a number of tables and appendices for easy reference. All the instruments and systems detailed are representative of those installed in a range of civil aircraft types currently in service. The operating principles of digital computer techniques and electronic displays are emphasised.
The pilot develops a good part of his aeronautical life inside a flight deck. In it, the multiple parameters that allow the control of the aircraft are presented through different "indicators" or instruments.
From the primitive cabins, where each of these instruments presented a specific data or value, to the most modern flight cabins, where the concept of "glass cabin" allows for a simplification of the presentations used, the book aims to cover all the evolutionary development that has marked the history of Aviation, focusing mainly on those systems, equipment or instruments that continue to shape mainly the configuration of the cabins of the aircraft that are still operating today.
This book, Number 5 in the series of 14, entitled Instrumentation, comprehensively covers the EASA ATPL syllabus and Learning Objectives for this subject and also includes specimen revision and test questions and answers.
It deals with Flight Instruments, Warning and Recording Equipment and Automatic Flight Control Systems. Each of these sections aims to pass on, in a flowing, easily-read style, all the theory the student pilot will need to understand the instrumentation of any aircraft in which he or she may fly.
