The Instrument Procedures Handbook is a technical reference manual for professional pilots who operate under instrument flight rules (IFR). It provides real-world guidance on how instrument-rated pilots can best use the system they've trained for, as well as in-depth coverage of instrument charts and procedures for IFR takeoff, departure, en route, arrival, approach, and landing. For every navigation receiver and phase of flight, this handbook details the required precision that is needed to stay within protected airspace and make a successful approach. Safety information for relevant subjects such as runway incursion, land hand hold short operations, controlled flight into terrain, and human factors issues are covered here. the emphasis is on airplane operations, but the book also contains a chapter dedicated to helicopter instrument procedures. The Instrument Procedures Handbook expands on the FAA's Instrument Flying Handbook (FAA-H-8083-15). This handbook introduces advanced information for IFR operations. Airline Transport Pilots (ATP), Instrument pilots, Instrument Flight Instructors (CFIIs), and students preparing for the instrument rating will find this a valuable resource in studying for the FAA Knowledge Exams and getting ready for their checkrides. Illustrated throughout with detailed, full-color drawings and photographs; also includes acronyms list, glossary and index. Last updated in 2015, this 2017 edition includes editorial wording changes for clarity and consistency, updated terminology to reflect current rules and procedures, while updated graphics and illustrations improve the appearance, readability and understanding. In-depth sections on instrument charts and procedures cover all phases of flight from takeoff to landing. Each topic covered is well-detailed and explained in user-friendly terms.

Not since "Sugar Chemistry" by Shallenberger and Birch (1975) has a text clearly presented and applied basic carbohydrate chemistry to the quality attributes and functional properties of foods. Now in Food Carbohydrate Chemistry, author Wrolstad emphasizes the application of carbohydrate chemistry to understanding the chemistry, physical and functional properties of food carbohydrates. Structure and nomenclature of sugars and sugar derivatives are covered, focusing on those derivatives that exist naturally in foods or are used as food additives. Chemical reactions emphasize those that have an impact on food quality and occur under processing and storage conditions. Coverage includes: how chemical and physical properties of sugars and polysaccharides affect the functional properties of foods; taste properties and non-enzymic browning reactions; the nutritional roles of carbohydrates from a food chemist's perspective; basic principles, advantages, and limitations of selected carbohydrate analytical methods. An appendix includes descriptions of proven laboratory exercises and demonstrations. Applications are emphasized, and anecdotal examples and case studies are presented. Laboratory units, homework exercises, and lecture demonstrations are included in the appendix. In addition to a complete list of cited references, a listing of key references is included with brief annotations describing their important features. Students and professionals alike will benefit from this latest addition to the IFT Press book series. In Food Carbohydrate Chemistry, upper undergraduate and graduate students will find a clear explanation of how basic principles of carbohydrate chemistry can account for and predict functional properties such as sweetness, browning potential, and solubility properties. Professionals working in product development and technical sales will value Food Carbohydrate Chemistry as a needed resource to help them understand the functionality of carbohydrate ingredients. And persons in research and quality assurance will rely upon Food Carbohydrate Chemistry for understanding the principles of carbohydrate analytical methods and the physical and chemical properties of sugars and polysaccharides.

Cockpit Automation provides basic instruction in the use of cockpit automation equipment now prevalent in general aviation aircraft — GPS, autopilots, and other colorful displays for weather, terrain, etc. Cockpit automation is covered as it happens in an actual flight, from preflight, taxi-out, take-off, cruise, descent and landing. Ideal for both self-study and classroom use, this book provides step-by-step, common-sense instruction that teaches you to use your panel-mounted IFR GPS computer and other modern cockpit technologies, with particular emphasis on the Garmin G430. The fundamental skills you need are presented using simple language and familiar examples drawn from everyday flight situations. Each chapter ends with a practice session that can be used in a simulator program or an airplane at the local flight school. This book is the ideal prerequisite to the author's other book, "The Pilot’s Guide to the Airline Cockpit" and provides hands-on experience with cockpit automation in the airplanes pilots are flying today. Includes a bonus DVD (approximately 30 minutes in length) that demonstrates each of the skills covered in the book.

Here is a book that pointedly focuses on what teachers need to consider in their classroom decision-making. Its main emphasis is on classroom and curricular integration, not on the panoply of available technology. It addresses the needs and concerns of preservice and inservice teachers of different experiential backgrounds, from computer novice through long-time proficient users. The book is up-to-date, with coverage of the Internet and World Wide Web and classroom networks, and the latest on multimedia applications. Just as importantly, this book reflects the shift of emphasis in how schools are putting technology to use with K-12 youngsters toward genuine fusion of computer use with instructional processes in diverse areas. The new tripartite structure of the book covers: 1) the information on the integration of technology into the curriculum (in its 10 chapters); 2) supportive computer literacy and technology information (within the six primer sections interspersed throughout the text); and 3) computer and pedagogical resources at chapters' ends. Thus, the book emphasizes methods of classroom and curricular integration while simultaneously reviewing the necessary information and issues to consider when deciding on computers for one's classroom. Additionally, the authors address significant concerns, including quality of software, gender equity, and copyright issues. For pre-service and in-service teachers who need recommendations for quality software for use in K-12 educational settings.
