Also, is there a book like the visual maneuvers handbook regarding instrument procedures?
1$\begingroup$ Instrument Rating - Materials to start reading?. Such forum is more appropriate than this Q/A site where resource recommendation is off topic. $\endgroup$– minsOct 25, 2021 at 20:57
3$\begingroup$ I think it's a great question and we should be helpful. A little flexibility to help someone sincerely asking a question directly related to aviation is a good thing for this Q/A site. $\endgroup$– 757togaOct 26, 2021 at 0:42
1$\begingroup$ Define “must read”. As far as I know, it is possible to get an instrument rating without reading any books. $\endgroup$– JimOct 26, 2021 at 2:11
1$\begingroup$ @Jpe61 Well, I can tell you that in the 80’s - early 90’s all I had to do was fly with my instructor and watch my Sporty’s Instrument Rating VHS tapes. :-) $\endgroup$– JimOct 26, 2021 at 15:30
1$\begingroup$ @Jpe61 - Actually I think it was John and Martha King’s tapes; Sporty’s was the new competition. $\endgroup$– JimOct 26, 2021 at 15:51
The FAA Instrument Flying Handbook (FAA H 8083-15) and FAA Instrument Procedures Handbook (FAA H 8083-16) are great resources for Instrument flying.
The best book on aviation weather for the commercial/IFR/ATP pilot I've ever read is the textbook published for Royal Canadian Air Force aircrew called the RCAF Weather Manual. Simple, clear, easy to understand aviation weather theory. Beautifully written. Can't recommend it enough.
