This handbook refers to FAA charts. (as compared to the similar Instrument Procedures Guide which refers to Jeppesen charts). H-8083-16 supersedes FAA-H-8261-1A.

Designed as a technical reference for all pilots who operate under instrument flight rules (IFR) in the national airspace system, the Instrument Procedures Handbook expands and updates information contained in the FAA-H-8083-15B, Instrument Flying Handbook, and introduces advanced information for IFR operations. Instrument students, pilots, and flight instructors alike will find this handbook a valuable resource since it is used as a reference for the Airline Transport Pilot and Instrument Knowledge Exams and for the practical test checkride).

Instrument Procedures Handbook provides detailed coverage of instrument charts and procedures including IFR takeoff, departure, en route, arrival, approach, and landing. New content explores controlled flight into terrain (CFIT), enhanced flight vision systems (EFVS), LNAV/VNAV and circling minimums, head-up display (HUD) and synthetic and enhanced vision systems (SVS/EVS). The NextGen System is covered including ADS-B, SWIM, data and network communications systems, and a "forecast" of NextGen planned improvements. Also included are pertinent issues related to the development, limitations and utilization of airborne navigation databases in use today and for future use in an ever-modernizing national airspace system.
