The Instrument Flying Handbook FAA-H-8083-15B was developed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Released originally in 2012, this publication includes all addendums and errata issued by the FAA through 2022.
This handbook supersedes FAA-H-8081-15A, Instrument Flying Handbook, dated 2007.
This Instrument Flying Handbook is designed for use by instrument flight instructors and pilots preparing for instrument rating tests. Instructors may find this handbook a valuable training aid as it includes basic reference material for knowledge testing and instrument flight training.
All of the aeronautical knowledge and skills required to operate in instrument meteorological conditions (IMC) are detailed. This book is a great tool to obtain the required knowledge in preparation to pass the required FAA Knowledge Test for the instrument rating.

Chapters are dedicated to human and aerodynamic factors affecting instrument flight, the flight instruments, attitude instrument flying for airplanes using analog and EFD (Electronic Flight Display) systems, basic flight maneuvers used in IMC (with analog and EFD instrumentation), attitude instrument flying for helicopters, navigation systems, the National Airspace System (NAS), the air traffic control (ATC) system, instrument flight rules (IFR) flight procedures, and IFR emergencies.
