“If the Airline Transport Pilot certificate is the Ph.D. of aviation, the Commercial and Instrument tickets represent the bachelor’s and master’s degrees.” Author Bob Gardner so defines the advanced pilot; The Complete Advanced Pilot is written for the many pilots who streamline their efforts by preparing for the instrument rating and the commercial certificate simultaneously.
An FAA Knowledge Exam is required for the instrument rating and the commercial certificate. In using the FAA tests as the premise for learning, here Bob Gardner applies practical information so readers are not only prepared for the exams but also for the cockpit. The required aeronautical knowledge is augmented by his specific tips and techniques, checklists and mnemonic devices, and sound advice from personal experience. Each chapter concludes with sample FAA test questions, and a comprehensive glossary and index are included as well as an approach chart legend appendix. This practical application of the FAA Knowledge Exam is not available in any other text!
With the author’s conversational yet concise explanations, readers will quickly grasp the subjects, pass the required tests and checkrides, and have an operational understanding of flight they can take to the cockpit as newly-minted commercial pilots operating under instrument flight rules (IFR). Includes helpful internet resources for weather charts, full color examples of those weather charts, updated review questions and resource website links.
