The latest edition of the FAA’s Instrument Procedures Handbook (FAA-H-8083-16A) is now available from ASA.
This new edition supersedes the previous version (FAA-H-8083-16), and contains substantial changes, updates, and reorganization of material that should be reviewed by anyone who flies under instrument flight rules (IFR) or will be flying in instrument meteorological conditions (IMC), ASA officials note.
Updates were made to reflect new information, as well as current practices and procedures related to Terminal Arrival Areas, RNAV and GPS-based approaches, ILS and parallel ILS approaches, and important concepts and principles related to obstacle avoidance and departure planning, among others.
The handbook is used as a reference for the Instrument Rating and Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) FAA Knowledge Exams and Practical Test Standards.
Detailed coverage of instrument charts and procedures including IFR takeoff, departure, en route, arrival, approach, and landing, safety information such as runway incursion, land and hold short operations, controlled flight into terrain, and human factors issues also are included.
Available in print, eBook PDF, eBook ePub, eBundle, and in a combo pack paired with the Instrument Flying Handbook (FAA-H-8083-15B).
