well worth upgrading to.

  • By Roger from Chandler AZ USA on Monday, June 03, 2013
  • Pros: added glass cockpit info and techniques.
  • Cons:
  • Review: While the basics of instrument training never change, equipment does. I was very impressed to see the FAA keeping up with all of the new glass cockpit and GPS changes. While keeping all of the basic analog cockpit technique, this manual has included a follow up chapter for each section using the G1000 glass cockpit. Useful if you are training or instructing in both kinds of cockpit.

Good reference

  • By Tim from Murfreesboro TN USA on Wednesday, May 05, 2010
  • Pros: Price lower at mypilotstore.com
  • Cons: Loose pages for Change 1 to the publication
  • Review: Solid source of information for training and future reference. The small packet of extra pages (for Jan 2009 Change 1 to the publication) is a bit cheesy, but they can be taped inside the cover to prevent falling out. Plus, the price was lower at mypilotstore.com than other suppliers.

A must have for you Practical Test

  • By Donna from Arizona on Wednesday, March 05, 2008
  • Pros: Designed to conform to PTS standards
  • Cons:
  • Review: The topics of this book were designed by the FAA to conform to pilot training and certification concepts in relation to the Practical Test Standards. The book is full of great visual references as opposed to the previous issue. In order to prepare yourself for the Instrument rating, as well as the Instrument Instructor rating, this book is a great reference for answers your examiner will be looking for. I would recommend using this book along side the ASA Instrument Pilot's Flight Manual. Side by side they give you the FAA designed concepts, as well as practical application and a broad understanding of subjects, as necessary for the CFII. The book has helped me TREMENDOUSLY with my instrument practical and written tests, and my CFII examiner referenced it to me many times. Worth the money. An essential buy for all you achieving towards your instrument and/or CFII ratings.

Good choice for economical IFR training

  • By Patrick from Maumelle AR USA on Thursday, March 11, 2010
  • Pros: Short, sweet, straight to the point
  • Cons: Some navigation concepts could use better descriptions
  • Review: This book is concise and reads reasonably easily. It provides descriptions of instrumentation for traditional "steam gauge" displays as well as newer glass cockpit displays providing a nice recap on material if both sections are read.

  • By Angelo from Chicago IL USA on Monday, March 18, 2013
  • Pros: I love how quickly I received the product.
  • Cons: I did not love the condition of the book. The corner was a little beat up. Not a huge deal, but it was a little bothersome. It could've been packed a little better. One of my students had the same issue.

Too much legal CYA distractions, very dry reference book.

  • By A Customer from Raleigh NC USA on Wednesday, June 03, 2015
  • Pros: A reference book
  • Cons: too much legal CYA, not for begginers.
  • Review: The worst part is that most parts of real maps, approach plates have a hard to avoid label: Do not use for navigation. It is hard to concentrate on a dry book and some one with to much legal CYA, just ruined the diagrams. It needs to be cleaned up. Not for beginners.
