This book provides invaluable discussion on instrument airmanship, weather analysis, flight planning and decision making, handling equipment glitches, partial-panel flying, and much more.
Flight-tested keys to success in today's world of IFR flight.
Author Richard Collins shares his experience in this guide to the real world of instrument flight, detailing the IFR system, equipment, and exploring the risks and rewards of instrument flying. The invaluable discussions on instrument airmanship, weather analysis, flight planning and decision making, handling equipment glitches, and that critical survival skill — partial panel flying — are all presented for the sole objective of better preparing you to fly on IFR flight plans. This fourth edition takes into account the current IFR environment, and includes chapters dedicated to:
perfecting basic attitude instrument flying for the foundation of a successful IFR flight
light airplane operation in the middle high-altitudes beginning at 18,000 feet
the relationship between systems — including autopilots — and instrument flying
using all resources, including computers, to file flight plans, obtain and interpret weather information, and prepare flight plans for the best preflight readiness
IFR flight in and around ice, thunderstorms, and at night
The only tests this book prepares you for are those encountered in flying actual IFR. Where the initial instrument checkride leaves off with the applicant receiving a "dry" instrument ticket, this book provides the information necessary to "get it wet."
