This book brings together comprehensive National Airspace System (NAS) information from multiple FAA and other source materials, editing and expanding on them to form a cohesive, all-in-one account of a wide-reaching and complex topic. Sources include the Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge (FAA-H-8083-25), Instrument Flying Handbook (FAA-H-8083-15), Instrument Procedures Handbook (FAA-H-8083-16), Aeronautical Information Manual (AIM), Airport/Facility Directory (AF/D), Advisory Circulars, Advanced Avionics Handbook (FAA-H-8083-6), Federal Radio Navigation Plan, NPIAS Report, regulations and charts.

Pilots and non-pilots alike will benefit from the information. This book covers much of the material for an pilot ground school course from a non-pilot perspective. It also includes information relevant to large airports and air transport operations in the NAS not covered in an instrument ground course. It pulls together what is relevant to students studying for careers in air traffic control (ATC), Dispatch, Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), Airport Planning or Airport Management. The material in this book is currently used in a prerequisite course for Airport Design, ATC I, Unmanned Aerial Systems, and Airline Operations.

Each chapter in this second edition includes its own list of chapter terminology, and all terms are defined in a new glossary. New information on unmanned aircraft in the NAS, performance based navigation, and parallel approaches at busy airports has been added. Updates have been made to implement the most current information available and the questions at the end of each chapter include a reference to where the information can be found.

Additional features include:

  • Written from a non-pilot perspective
  • Ideal for pilots and non-pilots studying for a career in aviation
  • Information relevant to high altitude as well as low altitude airspace
  • Introduction to Required Navigation Performance (RNP)
  • Each chapter includes study questions
  • Over 170 figures, including up-to-date examples from current publications as well as original work

Dr. Donna F. Wilt produced this book in its entirety and takes full responsibility for the content.
