Richard Collins shares invaluable discussions on instrument airmanship, weather analysis, flight planning and decision making, handling
equipment glitches, and that critical survival skill—partial panel flying.

This fifth edition covers all aspects of modern IFR flying, including:
• Perfecting basic attitude instrument flight.
• Light airplane operation in the middle to high altitudes.
• IFR flight in and around ice, thunderstorms, and at night.
• Best-practices in new, modern glass cockpits.
• Managing stress.

The only tests for which Flying IFR prepares the reader for are the ones encountered on actual IFR flights. Where the initial instrument checkride leaves off with the applicant receiving a “dry” instrument ticket, this book provides the information necessary to “get it wet.”
