Based on the original text by William K. Kershner, this new seventh edition has been updated throughout to reflect current regulations, operating procedures, and technology.


The Instrument Flight Manual is written for the pilot desiring to add an instrument rating, and for the instrument-rated pilot who needs a refresher. The book's five main sections cover airplane performance and basic instrument flying, navigation and communications, planning the instrument flight, the instrument flight, and a syllabus for the instrument student and the CFII.


As with all of Kershner's books, this manual covers instrument flying in as much detail as possible without over-complicating the subject. Numerous illustrations by the author aid in visualization of the concepts. This book covers everything students need to know to obtain an FAA instrument rating and has consistently been a favorite of both students and instructors alike.

Softcover, 8.25" x 10.75", 388 pages.
