New Edition of FAA Instrument Procedures Handbook

FAA has published a new edition of the Instrument Procedures Handbook (FAA-H-8083-16). It supplants the earlier version (FAA-H-8261-1A), which was published in 2007. The IPH complements the Instrument Flying Handbook (FAA-H-8083-15). It “introduces advanced information for IFR operations…flight instructors, instrument pilots, and instrument students.”

Update: It appears that the new edition released via ForeFlight is still a draft, albeit a near-final one. FAA will probably release the official new edition of the IPH late in 2013.

If you use the documents feature in ForeFlight, you can download the PDF version now.

The new edition was not available for download at the FAA site as of 21 July, but check the Aviation Handbooks & Manuals page frequently to get the free download as soon as it’s posted. Hard copy versions should be available soon from publishers such as ASA.
