The new FAA Advanced Avionics Handbook 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, 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, en route 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.
