   Welcome to your instrument instructor in an audiobook. If you don't have the time to read, then just listen and learn because Rod's Instrument Pilot's Handbook is presented in a warm, conversational manner. His tried-and-true method of instruction can be enjoyed during your commute, relaxing at home, or almost anywhere. It allows you to learn in a new, novel and often more efficient manner. Turn wasted freeway time into learning time. As one pilot said, "I felt like I had an instrument flight instructor right there in the car with me."
   Perfect if you don't have the time or inclination to read, or for "tired" eyes at the end of the day. It's a pleasure to be read to, especially from a lively text spiced with humor. You can listen to the first eight chapters without referring to the book's graphics. However, for some chapters, you’ll want to review the pictures, picture text, graphs and charts in the handbook. As such we recommend purchasing the eBook in combination with the audiobook. (Downloads are non-refundable.)

  “If you are truly serious about instrument flying, you should buy this book. If you are not serious, you should not be flying on instruments.”  Captain John Dill - FedEx Express

 “Rod’s IFR Handbook is wonderful. His style makes very dry and often boring topics very interesting. It’s almost like reading a novel.” Marc Lame, Charlevoix, Michigan

 “To the IFR world, Machado’s Handbook is manna from heaven. Other sources don’t explain how things relate to real world flying. Machado’s book does this exceptionally well. The illustrations, pictures, levity, text, and content are great! The BREADTH of the subject matter covered is tremendous. It covers exactly what IFR pilots need today. ” John Plueger, CFI–AISMEL, ATP, Citation-500

 “…the pages I have read on approach charts and holding are worth the price of the book. I believe Rod’s books are the best. ” Bill Fosina, Gladstone, New Jersey
