Max Trescott's GPS and WAAS Instrument Flying Handbook

Most books treat GPS as a subtopic and don’t tell everything you need to know about using GPS. But the new Max Trescott’s GPS and WAAS Instrument Flying Handbook recognizes that GPS is at the center of modern cockpits and not just add-on equipment. If you fly VFR or IFR with a panel-mounted GPS, you’re bound to learn something you didn’t know about GPS, WAAS or operating your GPS receiver. It’s a totally new book that tells you what you need to know to safely operate modern GPS systems including detailed, step-by-step instructions for the Bendix/King KLN 94, Garmin GNS 430, 430W, 480, 530, 530W and G900X, G1000 and Perspective glass cockpits.

Don't Get Stuck in the Clouds Wondering Which Button to Push!
Max starts the book by explaining the details of how the GPS satellite navigation system works. Next he goes into the details of the new infrastructure that was built to create WAAS, the Wide Area Augmentation System. He also explains all of the new WAAS-based approach minimums: LPV, LNAV/VNAV, LNAV, LNAV+V, and LP and the “gotchas” involved in flying these approaches. Finally Max gives detailed instructions for operating the most popular panel-mounted GPSs and how to use an autopilot when flying approaches.

Throughout the book, NTSB reports and NASA Aviation Safety Reporting System pilot reports are used to illustrate pitfalls in using—and misusing—GPS equipment. Dozens of practical GPS and IFR tips, gleaned from the industry’s most experienced flight instructors are clearly displayed in the margins.

Experienced pilots pilots may be surprised to learn why you should always load an approach with an IAF—even when receiving vectors to final. They’ll also learn why what they used to do with the SUSP key will now get them in trouble when loading an instrument approach. But there’s lots more.

Learn What All Pilots Should Know

  • The big differences between the Direct-to key and using a flight plan.
  • Getting started entering flight plans.

Learn the Right Way to Load Approaches including:

  • The myth of needing to "activate the approach".
  • Why you’ll never want to load an approach with an IAF—even when receiving vectors to final.
  • When to Load versus to Activate an instrument approach.
  • Why pushing the SUSP key gets you in trouble when loading an instrument approach.

Learn About Flying Instrument Approaches

  • How to fly ALL instrument approach types.
  • Why checking RAIM alone isn’t sufficient with a WAAS-capable GPS receiver.
  • How to use your autopilot along every step of the approach.
  • Why your autopilot may fail to couple to an ILS glide slope.
  • Why some missed approaches begin before a GPS counts down to zero.

Learn About WAAS and other New Capabilities

  • Details on new minimums: LPV, LNAV/VNAV, LNAV, LNAV+V, and LP.
  • How to tell if a GPS is certified to use new WAAS-based approaches.
  • Different regulations that apply to WAAS-based GPS receivers.
  • Loading airways and flying GPS-based T- and Q-route airways.

Rod Machado, Flight Instructor, Author and National Aviation Safety Counselor said, Max Trescott has done it again with the publication of Max Trescott’s WAAS and GPS Flying Handbook. This book is an absolute must-have for your flying library if you’re an instrument rated pilot or are working on your instrument rating. It’s a comprehensive, no-nonsense guide to understanding and flying GPS approaches. Max takes you from the basics to the advanced aspects of WAAS based GPS approaches and covers the nitty-gritty details that are oh-so necessary to safely use today’s sophisticated GPS equipment."

Excellent - Worth the $$$
by Gregg from Wayne IL USA 

Pros: How to actually program 430/530 W's in the real world when loading a proceedure.
Cons: Any mention to systems other than Garmin. He should do a separate book on all other systems.
Review: Maybe a little too much technical discussion on how GPS works.

i liked it, lots of useful stuff
by James from Anaheim Hills CA USA

Great New Addition to my Aviation Library
by John Spillane from Sarasota FL USA 

Pros: Makes it easy to understand the WASS system
Cons: None
Review: Max Trescott previously wrote the excellent handbook on the G1000 Glass Cockpit. In this handbook he continues his insight with explaining how WASS works with the G1000. If you need help in understanding what and how WASS works, this is the book to turn to. Easy to read and understand. A must for the modern instrument pilot.
