DESCRIPTION DU PRODUIT :
Author Richard Collins shares his experience in this guide to the real world of instrument flight, detailing the IFR system, equipment, and exploring the risks and rewards of instrument flying. The invaluable discussions on instrument airmanship, weather analysis, flight planning and decision making, handling equipment glitches, and that critical survival skill-partial panel flying-are all presented for the sole objective of better preparing you to fly on IFR flight plans. This fourth edition takes into account the current IFR environment, and includes chapters dedicated to:
· perfecting basic attitude instrument flying for the foundation of a successful IFR flight;
· light airplane operation in the middle high-altitudes beginning at 18,000 feet;
· the relationship between systems-including autopilots-and instrument flying;
· using all resources, including computers, to file flight plans, obtain and interpret weather information, and prepare flight plans for the best preflight readiness;
· managing stress;
· IFR flight in and around ice, thunderstorms, and at night.

The only tests for which Flying IFR prepares the reader for are the ones encountered on actual IFR flights. Where the initial instrument checkride leaves off with the applicant receiving a "dry" instrument ticket, this book provides the information necessary to "get it wet."
