The content in both publications is descriptive and based on ICAO Standards and recommendations, EASA CS and EU-OPS.

 
Instrument flight procedures and Aircraft performance deals with subjects heavily affecting the pilot’s workday. Since this book was first published, Performance Based Navigation (PBN) has been introduced, and rules and regulations concerning procedures and weather minima have been subject to extensive revisions. On readers’ request this extensively revised and updated edition is now available.
