If your instrument training was as haphazard as that of most pilots, then this book may cause a profound change in your method for managing the extraordinary demands of single-pilot IFR.

With the help of this book, you will establish your own personal standard operating practices for IFR., including the incorporation of checklists, flows, callouts, briefings, and "by the numbers" aircraft control. Your flying will be much less haphazard, and much more regimented, structured, and above all, safe.

A wholesale review and analysis of IFR operations with special emphasis on the integration of GPS into modern IFR. This is long overdue. Tens of thousands of general aviation IFR pilots are now using GPS. Most of these pilots took their last ground school or IFR written exam years before the advent of GPS and have never really studied the new system. Instructors see the effects of this lack of training all the time. Many pilots have only a perfunctory knowledge of how the GPS systems works, and how it sometimes fails to work. Many pilots comprehend only a small fraction of the capabilities of their specific GPS units. Even more commonly seen are failures to understand the new regulations that govern GPS use and the newly formatted charts that have evolved with the GPS approaches. There are a great many subtleties here, and it is time for serious instrument pilots to roll up their sleeves and get to work bringing themselves up to date. I am confident this book can help.

Chapters include:

  • Checklists, Flows, and Callouts
  • Flying by the Numbers
  • Clearance and Departure
  • Flying the GPS Approach
  • A Sample Trip; On Top, Holds, and NDBs
  • Holding

IFR A Structured Approach 10/02/2023
By Malcolm Cruickshank
The book is good, and helps a lot with what I was looking for. The purchase was simple at the purchase part, but the Secured PDF section caused 2 days of drama. The nature of the security license was what caused the trouble. Every security filter in my system objected to it, and multiple send attempts ended up in the protection systems intervening and destroying the email. Finally one of the techs sent me a simple email and it got through. It would be excellent if this part of the provision could be sorted better.
