If you wind up buying any of these books through the links to Amazon they'll pay me a commission, which goes right back into flying. So far, I've hauled in about $2.20, so I'm not doing this to get rich.
|All of our training will be based on maneuvers and standards described in the PTS. When it comes time for your checkride, you'll know the requirements and spelled out in the PTS and be able to fly all of the required maneuvers within standards consistently. The ASA PTS book is a handy size and holds up better than a bunch of paper printed off from your PC, but you can also download the latest PTS for free from the FAA.|
|Like primary training, all of our training for the instrument rating is based on maneuvers and standards described in the PTS. You can also download the latest PTS for free from the FAA.|
|Contains all of the required maneuvers, knowledge areas and completion standards for the commercial certificate. The ASA PTS book is a handy size and holds up better than a bunch of paper printed off from your PC, but you can also download the latest PTS for free from the FAA.|
|This is a truly excellent resource and useful both for preparing for the oral portion of the instrument rating practical test and for a general resource throughout your instrument training.|
This and the Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge will cover 90% of your needs for studying for the private pilot written exam. Both are suprisingly well-written, considering they are official government publications.
|Pair this with the Airplane Flying Handbook and you'll be in good shape for the written exam.|
Much of what is contained in the Jeppesen book is the same as you'd find in the Airplane Flying Handbook and Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge, which are available for less. However, the nice thing about the Jeppesen book is everything is all in one book and they do a good job of breaking out the points that you'll need to knkow for certain to pass the written exam.
Also, the stories and examples contained in the Jeppesen book are interesting and coupled with a Jeppesen Syllabus the book should do the job. If your flight school teaches from the Jeppesen book, buy it. If they don't, buy what they use.
|I used this book for both my instrument rating and commercial license written exams and thought it was excellent. The FAA Instrument Flying Handbook and Instrument Procedures Handbook contain much of the same information at a slightly lower cost but I still prefer the Jeppesen book in this case.|
|Everything you need to know to pass the instrument written exam when paired with the Instrument Procedures Handbook. Again, very well written, especially for a government publication.|
|Pair this with the Instrument Flying Handbook, study hard, do lots of practice tests and you'll pass the instrument written exam.|
Rod Machado is a funny guy and has a great way of making sense of the esoteric. The Instrument Pilot's Survival Manual is a nice book about real-world instrument flying and Machado does a fine job taking the mystery out of instrument flying.
I highly recommend this for private pilots and instrument students alike. Even if you don't have an instrument rating (you should, by the way, even if you never plan to use it the instrument rating will make you a better pilot and may just save your bacon one day) this is a worthwhile reference.
|This is a good outline for both your ground and flight training. If you use the Jeppesen book as a study aid, their syllabus will fit in nicely as it follows the same structure as the book.|
|I like the Gleim series of training materials, particularly this syllabus. Like the Jeppesen syllabus, it's a good outline for your ground and flight training. Which one you use is really a matter of preference as they're both suitable.|
