An IFR Pilot's Favorite Just Became Better
Instrument flying has changed, with the advent of so many glass
cockpits and related developments. With that in mind, Rod Machado's
Instrument Pilot's Survival Manual has been completely revised.
The new edition contains an entirely new chapter on GPS usage
referencing the Garmin IFR certified WAAS-base GPS unit; basic
approach programming, route programming and reprogramming, enroute
usage and more. It covers all approach modes from LNAV, L/VNAV, LPV
There is also a new section in weather chapter covering the
Skew-T/Log P chart that's very helpful in evaluating the convective
potential of the air. The Advanced Thunderstorm Avoidance chapter
reflects the newer convective weather depictions on Center and
Approach Control radar. And, a new section was added on instrument
scanning of primary flight displays (PFDs).
According to Machado's website, the Instrument Pilot's Survival
Manual is written to answer the instrument pilot's most important
and frequently unanswered questions. He says the book will prepare
you to be a more educated and proficient pilot.
