Many students prepare for the Commercial certificate and Instrument rating simultaneously, as a method to train efficiently, cut expenses, and expedite the process. The Complete Advanced Pilot combines these two phases in flight training to produce a seamless, effective method for efficient training. It is the best way to expedite the Instrument and Commercial certification process.
Taking and passing an FAA Knowledge Exam is required for the instrument rating and the commercial certificate. Using these tests as the premise for learning, Gardner applies practical information so readers are not only prepared for their exams, but also for the cockpit. Each chapter concludes with sample questions taken directly from the FAA tests, and a comprehensive glossary and index are included as well as useful aviation website links. This practical application of the FAA Knowledge Exam is not available in any other book. With the author's approachable yet concise writing style, readers will be able to quickly grasp the subjects, pass the required tests and checkrides, and have an operational understanding of instrument flying and the commercial ticket that they can take to the cockpit. Review questions follow each chapter.
