    Hey folks,

    I have not yet started my instrument training, but I wanted to get a jump start by reading through my Jeppeson Instrument/Commercial book. It is the 2006 version. Do I need to go ahead and buy an updated textbook, or has nothing really changed that much since 2006?

    Thanks for your feedback!

    I don’t know, has anything changed in electronic navigation in 16 years? Get current books.

    But yes, 13 years is a long time and quite a bit has likely changed. Some of the core concepts remain, but regulations, equipment, and standards may have been updated.

    @Thomas Rainey ... don't forget you can download the FAA books for free.

    Look for the "Instrument Flying Handbook" and the "Instrument Procedures Handbook" to get you started.

    Also download the Advisory Circulars "Aviation Weather" and "Aviation Weather Services" as there will be many written and oral questions from these sources.
