FAA-H-8083-15B reprint.

This is the FAA's primary pilot resource for instrument flight rules (IFR) covering everything pertinent to operating an aircraft in instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) or without reference to outside visuals, relying solely on the information gleaned from the cockpit. Readers will find chapters on the national airspace system, the air traffic control system, human factors, aerodynamics, flight instruments, flight maneuvers for IFR operations, navigation, emergency operations, as well as helicopter operations and more.

The material in this manual applies to both conventional "steam-gauge" analog instrumentation and the "glass cockpit" electronic flight displays found in advanced aircraft. Information is well organized into separate coverage of the traditional "6-pack" and discussions of pictorial "tape" displays. Advanced systems are covered, including flight management systems, the primary flight display (PFD) and multi-function display (MFD), synthetic vision, and traffic advisory systems. The book also features a synopsis of instrument clearance shorthand, as well as an instrument training lesson guide.

The Instrument Flying Handbook is designed for use by flight instructors, pilots preparing for the Instrument Rating FAA Knowledge and Practical Exams, and instrument-rated pilots looking for a refresher or preparing for an Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC). Illustrated throughout with detailed, full-color drawings and photographs; comprehensive glossary and index.  This replaces the Instrument Flying Handbook FAA-H-8083-15A published in 2007.

Soft cover, 368 pages, illustrated in full color.

FAA-H-8083-15B reprint.
Published December 2012.

REVIEW OF FAA INSTRUMENT FLYING HANDBOOK

  • By David from Lawrenceville GA USA on Wednesday, June 22, 2016
  • Pros: GOOD ILLUSTRATIONS
  • Review: Typical FAA Manual - TNI on some subjects - Not enough information on others - some explanations unclear (especially procedure turns!)

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
  • 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.

perfect study material

  • By Gregor from Brooklyn, NY on Tuesday, February 24, 2015
  • Pros:
  • Review: provides you most of the knowledge for the FAA-written test (IR).

well worth upgrading to.

  • By Roger from Chandler AZ USA on Monday, June 03, 2013
  • Pros: added glass cockpit info and techniques.
  • 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.

  • By Angelo from Chicago IL USA on Monday, March 18, 2013
  • Pros: I love how quickly I received the product.
  • Review:

  • 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.
