Product Summary

Provides general aviation users with comprehensive information on the advanced avionics equipment available in technically advanced aircraft (TAA). VFR and IFR operations in aircraft with the latest integrated -glass cockpit"

This new FAA handbook (FAA-H-8083-6, Effective 2009) provides general aviation users with comprehensive information on the advanced avionics equipment available in technically advanced aircraft (TAA). VFR and IFR operations in aircraft with the latest integrated glass cockpit instrumentation are covered here, helping pilots understand which advanced avionics systems to use and when.

Readers will learn the knob-ology associated with operating cockpit-computers, including data entry, maintaining current databases, and accessing information from the various screens. Common pilot errors, catching those errors, and instrument failures are discussed, as well as recommendations for using standby instruments during both normal and emergency operations. Each phase of flight is covered, so readers will know how to execute departure, enroute and approach procedures using glass cockpit instrumentation.

Subjects covered include the Primary Flight Display (PFD), Multi-Function Display (MFD), moving maps, terrain, cockpit weather, traffic data, fuel management systems, and electronic charts and checklists. Essential skills checklists and summaries conclude each chapter for a comprehensive review and quick-check reference. Soft cover, full-color illustrations, glossary, 8-1/4" x 10-3/4", 114 pages.

Getting the most from Cockpit Procedures

  • Student pilots can read the book repeatedly to reinforce the routines that their flight instructors are trying to teach them. Arriving prepared is the best way to obtain maximum benefit from expensive flight instruction.
  • Certificated pilots can learn to become more methodical, reducing the chances of missing important cues when things go wrong. They can also become more adaptable, easing the transition into other, more complex aircraft.
  • Flight instructors can use the book to great effect to improve their students performance in the cockpit, and to standardize operations in a flight school to improve cooperation among instructors.
  • Virtual aviators can learn to conduct a flight with maximum realism, using actual procedures used in the cockpits of real airplanes and helicopters.

 

For flight schools
Flight schools can request a set of review questions that students can use to ensure that they have mastered the book. For schools intending to use the book in their training, a full set of references for the review questions can also be supplied.

From the Foreword:
Enthusiasm and a genuine love of aviation have driven Chris to come up with what may well become one of the lasting training foundation stones of many future aviators Many of the philosophies taught here are so fundamental and powerful that they will carry a pilot right through to retirement.
Mike Malherbe, senior 777 training captain, Virgin Blue.

An Introduction to Cockpit Proceduresby Chris Burger
There are many books to help you in your quest to become a better pilot. Whether you are just starting or you are an old hand on an ongoing quest to improve, you can find books about almost any topic. Meteorology, aircraft systems, navigation, landing technique and every minute aspect of landings are well covered.

One gaping omission has been the lack of a book that tells you what you should be doing in the cockpit. As the Chief Instructor of a flying school, I felt that the flight training syllabus did not allow enough contact time between the instructor and the student to learn cockpit smarts sufficiently well. I therefore set about writing this book, to enable trainee pilots to absorb the skills in their own time.

Cockpit Procedures sets out to explain the nitty gritty of operating aircraft, both airplanes and helicopters. The book is being used for training brand new student pilots, but it is also intended for more advanced pilots trying to improve their technique. Any pilot undergoing advanced training will benefit greatly from the step-by-step coverage of routine and abnormal flying provided in this book. Would-be commercial pilots will benefit from learning perspectives on cockpit operations that will stand them in good stead in their careers, whether in the airlines or in general aviation.

The book contains:

  • An overview, describing how to use the book and what its aim is.
  • The use of checklists, describing action lists, flows and true checklists.
  • A step-by-step description of a normal flight, from the moment you arrive at the aircraft to the moment you leave the airport.
  • Sections on abnormal and emergency procedures, outlining priorities and thinking, as well as some specific procedures applicable to most airplanes.
  • A section on helicopter operations, indicating how the priorities and procedures are fundamentally the same, and providing pointers on how to adapt existing airplane procedures to helicopters.
  • A section on airmanship, including a breakdown of the required components and some practical tips. There are also sections on workload management and the practicalities of packing your flight bag.
  • A description of aircraft handbooks, describing the standardized format, the meaning of certain terms and the thinking behind the structure of all modern general aviation aircraft handbooks.
  • A set of sample checklists for light airplanes.
  • A section on Morse code, including a decoding tree. This section will help you greatly if you have to identify radio beacons aurally.

Flight schools can use the book to illuminate their flying school SOPs, which encourages standardization between students and instructors. Once a student has gained a solid understanding of SOPs, the school can publish its own preferences in a handy reference document that students will easily understand.

Virtual aviators have an amazing level of realism at their fingertips, in the form of interface devices and software that faithfully mimic the real aircraft. Until now, there has been no way to obtain a blow-by-blow description of happenings in the cockpit without taking instruction with a qualified pilot. This book solves this problem for virtual aviators by describing the actions required for each phase of flight in great detail.

The emphasis is practical. As an example, try these sections in the chapter on airmanship:

  • A list of good habits that you should cultivate.
  • A list of things to have in your flight bag.
  • How to correctly aim an aircraft at a point on the horizon.
  • How to manage risky events, such as changing fuel tanks.
  • How to manage workload, by redistributing the actions performed in the flight.
  • How to maintain a healthy balance between being careful and being confident.

 

Chris Burger provides a combination of practical and theoretical background that is unusual in aviation. He is a Designated Pilot Examiner on airplanes. His instruction experience of over 2,500 hours includes more than 80 aircraft models, including ultralights, medium jets and helicopters. He holds an Airline Transport Pilot Licence with instructor and test pilot ratings and has accumulated more than 3,500 hours on more than 100 aircraft models. By day, he works as a researcher in Artificial Intelligence systems. He holds a masters degree in engineering and a degree in aviation management, and is pursuing a PhD. He was once a licensed Air Traffic Controller. In his spare time, he plays with his daughter Lisa, is involved in a Christian church, flies as an Air Force Reserve pilot, plays several musical instruments badly and occasionally indulges in a little amateur radio.
