This category describes basic attitude instrument flight maneuvers and explains how to perform each one by interpreting the indications presented on the electronic flight display (EFD). In addition to normal flight maneuvers, “partial panel” flight is addressed. With the exception of the instrument takeoff, all flight maneuvers can be performed on “partial panel” with the Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS) unit simulated or rendered inoperative.

If you are studying for or planning on studying for your instrument rating, the ASA Test Prep guide for the Instrument Rating will help you prepare with samples of every test question in the FAA exam database, along with their answers and explanations. Subjects covered are: meteorology, flight and navigational instruments, instrument flight rules and procedures, arrivals and approaches, and review computations. It also includes a computer testing supplement.
You should also consider getting a copy of the Instrument Pilot Oral Exam Guide by Michael D. Hayes to prepare for the oral exam as well as the the Instrument Rating Airmen Certification Standards by the FAA which outlines the standards for passing the knowledge and oral exams.
