Great study guide

  • By A Customer from Hamburg NY USA on Monday, March 12, 2018
  • Pros: Everything
  • Review: Loved it. Great text companion to online course. I like having a hard copy of what I'm studying to refer back to for review, and this has everything the online course covers. Nice layout, pictures and stories to keep it interesting.

High Quality

  • By A Customer from Palmer AK USA on Monday, February 05, 2018
  • Pros: Wonderful training material. It comes with a commercial training manual in the same book.
  • Review: Jeppesen has produce a high quality text for anybody training for their instrument rating. I don't think there is anything better. Great pictures with thorough explanations. Excellent summaries and review questions for each section.

Content OK. Production quality trending downward

  • By Bob from Cherry Hill NJ USA on Wednesday, November 29, 2017
  • Pros: Good content. Good graphics.
  • Review: Jepp is the industry standard training text and I use it to teach ground schools. Content is still good, but I am disappointed that the weight of the pages has been reduced substantially so they easily crease and curl and stain from handling. Paper thickness is less than standard 20lb printer paper - maybe 16 lb. Over the years, they have gone from a hard bound book with heavy glossy pages to a paper bound book with lightweight, low durability pages. Some of this may have been in response to complaints about the weight of the earlier version.

It's a good book

  • By Richard from Huntington Woods MI USA on Sunday, July 31, 2016
  • Pros:
  • Review: It met my expectations. Although I needed other books to supplement the actual questions that would be on the FAA text.

Enough to build a foundation

  • By ChicCFII from New York, NY on Thursday, March 03, 2016
  • Pros: A great foundation of most basics in IFR flying, colorful pictures and FAA hot spot knowledge bubbles
  • Review: As a CFII, I like students to always have a foundation to build upon as they progress deeper into aviation. Most GA pilots don't aspire to go the "airline" route and therefore a lot of the Jepp plates and more 121/141 geared parts are a bit overwhelming. That being said, I learned out of this book (the 2000 edition) and the 2015 edition is a very pleasant upgrade complete with transition, RNAV and glass teachings.

  • By ChicCFII from New York, NY on Thursday, March 03, 2016
  • Pros: A great foundation of most basics in IFR flying, colorful pictures and FAA hot spot knowledge bubbles
  • Cons: Soft cover now, which is not as sturdy as the old hard cover, Jepp plates are still highlighted, bulky if student chooses not to go the CPL route
  • Review: As a CFII, I like students to always have a foundation to build upon as they progress deeper into aviation.

Best Flying Book I've bought

  • By David from Aliquippa PA USA on Tuesday, November 10, 2015
  • Pros:
  • Cons: I would have preferred less exposure to Jepp plates and just stuck with Gov't plates. I believe that is what most beginning Instrument students will start with. We can learn about Jepps later in our training.
  • Review: This book has proven to be very descriptive of the intellectual part of the IFR environment. I'm very glad that I purchased it.

    Q: Is this volume available in HARDCOVER? Thanks.

    A: The old edition published in 2006 was hardcover, but Jeppesen switched to a softcover with starting with the edition published in January 2013.  They are no longer printing any hardcover edition and all hardcovers are now outdated and out-of-print.

  • Thursday, September 24, 2009

    Q: Once I finished the manual, how do I take the written test? Do I have to also watch the Video?

    A:

    The Knowledge Exam (a.k.a. written test) can be taken at any FAA approved testing facility.  The textbook has all of the information in the videos (and then some) and is a comprehensive textbook that covers almost anything that would be asked on the Knowledge Exam with the exception of regulations which can be obtained through the FAR/AIM.

  • Tuesday, March 18, 2008

    Q: 1. Does this book cover the new WAAS approaches? 2. Since this is a Jeppesen text, do the examples exclusively use Jeppesen charts, or do they also cover NOS charts?

    A: This book does cover the WAAS procedures. It also uses both Jeppesen and NACO/NOS charts for reference.
