This new FAA handbook (FAA-H-8083-6, Effective 2009) provides general aviation users with comprehensive information on the advanced avionics equipment available in technically advanced aircraft (TAA). VFR and IFR operations in aircraft with the latest integrated “glass cockpit” instrumentation are covered here, helping pilots understand which advanced avionics systems to use and when.

Readers will learn the “knob-ology” associated with operating cockpit-computers, including data entry, maintaining current databases, and accessing information from the various screens. Common pilot errors, catching those errors, and instrument failures are discussed, as well as recommendations for using standby instruments during both normal and emergency operations. Each phase of flight is covered, so readers will know how to execute departure, enroute and approach procedures using glass cockpit instrumentation.

Subjects covered include the Primary Flight Display (PFD), Multi-Function Display (MFD), moving maps, terrain, cockpit weather, traffic data, fuel management systems, and electronic charts and checklists. Essential skills checklists and summaries conclude each chapter for a comprehensive review and quick-check reference.

Soft cover, full-color illustrations, glossary.

Technology Moves Too Fast

  • By tenther1 from Danbury CT USA on Monday, July 22, 2013
  • Pros:
  • Review: A lot of water has passed under the bridge since this book was published in 2009. It is still good for basic operation of separate Garmin nav/flight director units, but even these have been rendered obsolete in the past 2 years. There is a good glossary, however. If the FAA would update this book, I would give it 5 stars.

A Must Have!

  • By Robert from Valencia CA USA on Friday, January 18, 2013
  • Pros: very useful and to the point information.
  • Review: An excellent book! Very informative and detailed without being overly complicated. And very much contributes to those reading about, or studying instrument flying! No better adjunct!!

I would buy this product again!!

  • By Joseph from Baltimore MD USA on Wednesday, June 02, 2010
  • Pros: Great illustrations to go with the articles.
  • Review: I think the FAA put out a great book. Nothing like the old dull FAA publications. Finally a book that's colorful and informative. I strongly suggest it to all my students.
