Instrument Procedures Manual - Cover (Front).jpg

Instrument Procedures Manual

Welcome to the challenging world of instrument flying! Operations under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) are the most common mode of cross-country travel for both general aviation and the airlines. It is, therefore, necessary for IFR pilots to understand thoroughly the functions and limitations of the IFR system, and the procedures therein which must be followed.​

Chapters on pilot performance, automation and technology, and international procedures raise this title’s content to new levels, and capture its place as the title of necessity for every student pilot’s initial instrument studies, and for all subsequent instrument pilot reviews.

Flying Beyond 2024 3rd Edition Cover - Front.jpg

Flying Beyond

This excellently-written commercial ground school textbook, Flying Beyond: The Canadian Commercial Pilot Textbook, is the perfect educational segue from From the Ground Up into the higher standards required of students seeking their commercial pilot licence.

Each chapter is enhanced with compelling anecdotes that serve as excellent “real-world” learning tools that put subject matter into greater perspective for readers. Furthermore, examples abound throughout the book to further consolidate the understanding of subject matter. Finally, frequently placed “exam hints” direct students to pay special attention so as to be better prepared to take the written commercial examination.
