It provides real-world guidance on how instrument-rated pilots can best use the system they've trained for, as well as in-depth coverage of instrument charts and procedures for IFR takeoff, departure, en route, arrival, approach, and landing. For every navigation receiver and phase of flight, this handbook details the required precision that is needed to stay within protected airspace and make a successful approach. Safety information for relevant subjects such as runway incursion, land hand hold short operations, controlled flight into terrain, and human factors issues are covered here. the emphasis is on airplane operations, but the book also contains a chapter dedicated to helicopter instrument procedures. The Instrument Procedures Handbook expands on the FAA's Instrument Flying Handbook (FAA-H-8083-15). This handbook introduces advanced information for IFR operations. Airline Transport Pilots (ATP), Instrument pilots, Instrument Flight Instructors (CFIIs), and students preparing for the instrument rating will find this a valuable resource in studying for the FAA Knowledge Exams and getting ready for their checkrides. Illustrated throughout with detailed, full-color drawings and photographs; also includes acronyms list, glossary and index. Last updated in 2015, this 2017 edition includes editorial wording changes for clarity and consistency, updated terminology to reflect current rules and procedures, while updated graphics and illustrations improve the appearance, readability and understanding.

Certified flight instructors are rarely educators. Many see instruction as a stepping-stone to the next level of their flight careers and assume that merely telling is the equivalent of teaching. This mistake is detrimental to both students and the aviation industry. Telling a student something has no bearing on actual learning. True teaching requires a much deeper level of communication. Veteran flight instructor and educator Mike Thompson applies principles of educational psychology to the FAA-H-8083-9A Aviation Instructor's Handbook. Using simple, down-to-earth language, Thompson examines how to enable genuine teaching by developing the student-instructor relationship. Teaching is a human endeavor requiring an investment from student and instructor alike. Initially, it takes time to build a relationship with students, but once it's established, rates of engagement and retention increase. True learning is then achieved. Despite advances in educational technology, the human brain continues to learn as it always has. Thompson applies his knowledge of how people really learn and how to build effective student-teacher relationships to provide flight instructors with skills they can use to encourage deep and advanced learning. While primarily aimed at the aviation industry, Thompson's no-nonsense discussion of teaching and educational psychology is applicable in any instructional arena.

"In addition to demonstrating proficiency as a safe and effective pilot, instructors must be able to teach flight. Communicating effectively and facilitating student learning is at the heart of a flight instructor's job, and this requires a bit of psychology to understand how people learn. All flight (CFI) and ground instructors must take the FAA Fundamentals of Instructing (FOI) Knowledge Exam. The Aviation Instructor's Handbook is the primary reference for this FOI Knowledge Exam and an important text to introduce the needed psychology relative to teaching. However, the basic, hands-on, practical application of the material can be lost in the theoretical coverage. As a result, instructors result to memorizing acronyms for testing, rather than learning how to be an effective instructor. The Flight Instructor's Survival Guide is a companion text for The Aviation Instructor's Handbook allowing instructors to be the proverbial fly-on-the-wall in watching this important information being used to make a safe pilot. Student pilot readers will gain perspective that they aren't the only ones experiencing a particular issue in their flight training. This book is necessary for anyone striving to be aviation-citizens with character, professionalism and ethical values. Delightful and full of wisdom and humor, Arlynn's book is a gift to all flight instructors who will inevitably share or recognize these fundamentals of instructing issues in their own cast of clients"--Provided by publisher.

TheInspection Authorization Test Prep provides Aviation Maintenance Technicians (AMTs) with all the information needed to pass the FAA's exam for inspection authorization, and helps candidates become familiar with the privileges and limitations of the highest level of maintenance certification. This book is an important reference source for all AMTs seeking to add Inspection Authorization (IA) to his or her qualifications, as well as AMT schools preparing students for the IA test. All Inspection Authorization candidates must take and pass the FAA’s IA Knowledge Exam. The IA exam remains a "closed test”--the exact database of questions is not available to the public--which makes the IA Test Prep a great way to prepare for it. The IA exam differs from other FAA exams in that questions do not refer to a specific figure. Instead, applicants must learn to glean the information they need from the FAA Supplement (CT-8080-8) made available for use during the test. The nearly 500 sample questions typify those that candidates are likely to encounter, and train readers in the use of the available documents. Answer choices are supported with explanations, with FAA references identified for further study. This test prep also provides details on what applicants need to know about the certification process, insight into the function of an IA, and excerpts of regulations, advisory circulars, airworthiness directives, type certificate data sheets, FAA orders and aircraft specifications. Resources such as pertinent excerpts from these FAA documents and more are reprinted in this study guide; additionally, readers can access additional study material for this book at a special "Reader Resources" page at the ASA website. The IA Test Prep conveniently compiles the reference materials necessary to prepare for this exam into one volume, for an organized study program that AMT schools, instructors, and individuals alike can use to streamline their studies.
