Preface














               The Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge provides basic knowledge that is essential for pilots. This handbook
               introduces pilots to the broad spectrum of knowledge that will be needed as they progress in their pilot training. Except for
               the Code of Federal Regulations pertinent to civil aviation, most of the knowledge areas applicable to pilot certification are
               presented. This handbook is useful to beginning pilots, as well as those pursuing more advanced pilot certificates.

               Occasionally the word “must” or similar language is used where the desired action is deemed critical. The use of such language
               is not intended to add to, interpret, or relieve a duty imposed by Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR).

               It is essential for persons using this handbook to become familiar with and apply the pertinent parts of 14 CFR and the
               Aeronautical Information Manual (AIM). The AIM is available online at www.faa.gov. The current Flight Standards
               Service airman training and testing material and learning statements for all airman certificates and ratings can be obtained
               from www.faa.gov.

               This handbook supersedes FAA-H-8083-25A, Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge, dated 2008.


               This handbook is available for download, in PDF format, from www.faa.gov.
