Jeppesen Instrument/Commercial Kits, developed for both FAR Part 61 and FAR Part 141 training programs, are the most complete instrument/commercial pilot training packages available. Purchasing a kit is an economical and convenient way to obtain current, comprehensive, and integrated materials that will make the journey to your instrument rating or commercial pilot certificate successful.

Rather than just teaching facts, GFD concentrates on an application-oriented approach to pilot training. The comprehensive and complete system emphasizes the why and how of aeronautical concepts when they are presented. As you progress through training, you'll find that the revolutionary GFD System leads you through essential aeronautical knowledge and exposes you to a wide variety of interesting and useful information which will enhance and expand your understanding of the world of aviation. Although each element of GFD may be used separately, using all of the individual components in a systems approach can maximize the effectiveness of the materials.

What you'll get:

Instrument/Commercial Manual
The Instrument/Commercial Manual is your primary source for initial study and review to achieve an instrument rating or commercial pilot certificate. The intuitive organization and colorful presentation of the manual will help you learn quickly from the start. The text contains complete and concise explanations of the advanced concepts and ideas that every instrument and commercial pilot needs to know with the subjects arranged in a logical manner to build upon previously introduced topics. You can expand your knowledge of specific subjects and the world of aviation by exploring the Discovery Insets, which are strategically placed throughout the chapters. To help you understand how your mind and body function while you fly, human factors principles are presented in Human Element Insets. Throughout the manual, concepts that directly relate to FAA test questions are described in FAA Question Insets. To help you effectively review material, key terms are highlighted throughout the text and listed at the end of each section along with a checklist, which summarizes important concepts. Additionally, you can evaluate your understanding of material by completing the associated questions at the end of each section.

Instrument Rating Airmen Knowledge Test Guide
This test guide contains all the FAA instrument rating knowledge test questions along with the correct answers, explanations, and study references. Subject areas are organized by topic and coordinated with the Instrument/Commercial Manual. The three-hole punched, perforated pages allow you to select and remove specific pages for more effective study. Full-color charts identical to those on the FAA test are included, as well as a unique sliding mask for self-testing.

Commercial Pilot Airmen Knowledge Test Guide
This test guide contains all the FAA commercial pilot knowledge test questions along with the correct answers, explanations, and study references. Subject areas are organized by topic and coordinated with the Instrument/Commercial Manual. The three-hole punched, perforated pages allow you to select and remove specific pages for more effective study. Full-color charts identical to those on the FAA test are included, as well as a unique sliding mask for self-testing.

Instrument and Commercial Airman Certification Standards (ACS)
The Airman Certification Standards (ACS) is the guide for students, instructors, and FAA-designated examiners to know what applicants must know, do, and consider for their FAA Knowledge Exam (written test) and practical test (checkride) to earn their pilot certificate or rating. The goal of the airman certification process is to ensure the applicant possesses knowledge and skill consistent with the privileges of the certificate or rating being exercised, as well as the ability to manage the risks of flight in order to act as pilot in command.

Student Kit Bag (optional)

Numerous outside pockets help you organize such essential items as your charts, flight computer, fuel tester, plotter, and flashlight, as well as pens and pencils, while a convenient double zipper opening provides easy access to flight materials inside the bag. Carry your supplies in comfort with the wide removable shoulder strap. Reinforced bottom. Constructed with durable PVC backed 600 denier poly.

Excellent Program

  • By Jake from Sandpoint ID USA on Wednesday, April 13, 2011
  • Pros: Absolutely professional all the way
  • Review: I'm very impressed with the entire Instrument/Commercial kit. It is complete with workbooks and other misc items, including a carrying case. The text is hard bound and contains excellent examples, FAA notes and also gives a complete task breakdown of procedures (turn by turn). Thanks to my CFII for recommending buying this kit from mypilotstore.com ; the service was exceptional, as was the value.

Weighs a lot but does not necessarily provide a lot for the money

  • By Patrick from Maumelle AR USA on Thursday, March 11, 2010
  • Pros: Very comprehensive
  • Review: A lot of money for what you get but the books holds true to Jepsons style of providing good pictures to explain material mixing historical data, applied situations, and critical thinking problems into explanations of all the subject matter. This makes for a bit longer read compared to some other IFR training books. I'm using these books as a supplement to my instructors suggested readings rather then the primary reading but these books may become handy if I choose to pursue a commercial rating. IFR training materials can be acquired much more economically if an instructor lays out a well planned training program using FAA weather curriculum guides, IFR training guides, and study guides that may be purchased as separate books for nearly a quarter of the price of this kit. Also, the kit did NOT include a view limiting device as advertised when I purchased these books.

Exactly what I was expecting

  • By Stephanie from Reno NV USA on Thursday, October 08, 2009
  • Pros: Manual is easy to understand. Test guide includes sample test questions.
  • Review: Great resource and preparation for the Instrument rating written exam. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to pass the test!

  • By A Customer from Rio Grande PR USA on Sunday, November 30, 2008
  • Pros:
  • Review: Is a good package, if the package brings every thing they show in the promotion..i think they must change this promtion cause in the pic they show you that the instrument googles are include and its aint come in the pack ...so thats is the only problem i found...

Photo a little misleading but good kit.

  • By A Customer on Tuesday, November 04, 2008
  • Pros: Value. Good price for what is included.
  • Review: The photo on the web site clearly shows JepShades with the kit. However, my kit did not have them and if you look at the list of what it includes, they are not listed. Not a big deal but it should be pointed out. If you don't already have a hood or set of foggles, you will need to purchase them separately. Other than that, all the materials are of good quality. The illustrations in the books are done very well too.

Best Bang for the Buck!

  • By Mike from Minnesota on Friday, October 31, 2008
  • Pros: Very thorough manuals and study guides. Great illustrations and study materials. Every question on my written test was in my study book in some form.
  • Review: I used the Jeppesen kit to obtain my private pilot certificate. The materials are clearly written and they include illustrations as well as expanded explanations for the difficult topics. This is the only set of manuals my flight school provides to their students. I could not be happier with the education I have received with these books! I am confident my training will continue to be a success thanks to the Jeppesen GFD Series Books and Manuals!

  • By William from Mukilteo WA USA on Tuesday, March 18, 2008
  • Pros:
  • Review: A complete set of materials at a good price.

Can't go wrong with Jeppesen

  • By KC from Greensburg, PA on Friday, July 13, 2007
  • Pros: Clearly thought out, good graphics that explain as well as keep your attention
  • Review: I used Jeppesen for my private. I did book self study for the written with supplimental information from my instructor. I have started the Instrument phase and this book does not disappoint

Weighs a lot but does not necessarily provide a lot for the money

  • By Patrick from Maumelle AR USA on Thursday, March 11, 2010
  • Pros: Very comprehensive
  • Cons: Wordy, almost too much material, IFR reading not definitively separate from commercial rating reading

Photo a little misleading but good kit.

  • By A Customer on Tuesday, November 04, 2008
