Attitude Instrument Flying – Electronic Flight Display

Go back to the main Instrument Flight Rules Page.

Attitude instrument flying is defined as the control of an aircraft’s spatial position by using instruments rather than outside visual references. Today’s aircraft come equipped with analog and/or digital instruments. Section II acquaints the pilot with the use of digital instruments known as an electronic flight display (EFD).

The improvements in avionics coupled with the introduction of EFDs to general aviation aircraft offer today’s pilot an unprecedented array of accurate instrumentation to use in the support of instrument flying.
