LEARN WHY AERONAUTICAL CHARTS ARE AN ESSENTIAL FLYING COMPANION!

Whether you’re a commercial pilot or someone who flies for recreation, creating a detailed, well-crafted flight plan can mean the difference between a smooth ride and a world of trouble. That’s why to truly maximize your own safety — and that of your passengers — you need McGraw-Hill’s insightful Using Aeronautical Charts.

Designed to assist pilots in pre-flight preparations and with in-flight decision-making, Using Aeronautical Charts will help you transform these navigational tools into indispensable piloting partners. Through the book’s easy-to-read, practical guidance, you’ll:


* Master the specifics of VFR, IFR, and other charts
* Understand the wide variety of chart symbols and their impact upon flight planning
* Become familiar with the new RNAV charts
* Stay up to date with current airspace classifications.
* And much, much more!

Perfect for students — yet detailed enough for seasoned pilots — Using Aeronautical Charts delivers its lessons through a unique “Reader Challenge” format. As a result, you’ll build knowledge as you progress, rapidly moving from the basics of chart interpretation to international operations and beyond.

YOUR LIFE MAY DEPEND ON KNOWING THE RIGHT ANSWERS!

True or False...?


* All information about an instrument approach is contained in the published Instrument Approach Procedure (IAP) chart.
* The Aeronautical Information Manual (AIM) provides pilots with mandatory procedures.
* An underlined frequency indicates the facility operates on a part-time basis.
* Pilots operating under instrument flight rules (IFR) navigation are required to accept chartered visual flight procedures (CVFP) when assigned by Air Traffic Control.
* Controlled airspace establishes visual flight rules (VFR) minimums, and may mandate minimum pilot qualifications and aircraft equipment.
