This book is designed to supplement the instruction a student receives during his or her course. The Instrument Rating is a test of not only the student's ability to fly accurately on Instruments, the foundation, but also the ability to cope under a number of pressures. Instrument Flying is intended to help prepare the student to pass what is regarded as probably the most demanding flight tests in the world, the JAA Instrument Rating. It will also provide some useful tips and reminders when the IR renewal is due. Subjects covered include: use of radio navigation aids; let down and approach procedures for both ILS and NDB; airways flight; instrument rating test; and how to pass!

Originally trained at Hamble, Hoy worked for DF Aviation as the chief simulator instructor and then flight instructor specializing in instrument rating and commercial training. He went on to form his own company, DH Aviation, and after two years was approached by Cabair who absorbed his company and promoted him to CFI for their eight flying schools. Hoy worked for Cabair for nearly twenty years. He was then headhunted by BAe Systems and recruited as head of training commercial at Woodford, Manchester. Redundancy followed 9/11 and currently Hoy is manager of instructor training at Oxford Airline Training College.
