This instruction implements AFPD 11-2, Flight Rules and Procedures, by providing guidance and procedures for standard Air Force instrument flying. Since aircraft flight instrumentation and mission objectives are so varied, this instruction is necessarily general regarding equipment and detailed accomplishment of maneuvers. Individual aircraft flight manuals should provide detailed instructions required for particular aircraft instrumentation or characteristics. This instruction, when used with related flight directives and publications, provides adequate guidance for instrument flight under most circumstances, but is not a substitute for sound judgment. Circumstances may require modification of prescribed procedures. Aircrew members charged with the safe operation of United States Air Force aircraft must be knowledgeable of the guidance contained in this manual. This publication applies to the Air National Guard (ANG) when published in the ANGIND 2.
