The previous chapters have laid the foundation for instrument
flying. The pilot's ability to use and interpret the information
displayed and apply corrective action is required to maneuver
the aircraft and maintain safe flight. A pilot must recognize
that each aircraft make and model flown may require a
different technique. Aircraft weight, speed, and configuration
changes require the pilot to vary his or her technique in order
to perform successful attitude instrument fling. A pilot must
become familiar with all sections of the Pilot's Operating
Handbook/Airplane Flight Manual (POH/AFM) prior to
performing any flight maneuver.

Chapter 5-2 describes basic attitude instrument flight
maneuvers and explains how to perform each one by
interpreting the indications presented on the electronic
flight display (EFD). In addition to normal flight maneuvers,
"partial panel" flight will be addressed. With the exception of
the instrument takeoff, all flight maneuvers can be performed
on "partial panel" with the Attitude Heading Reference
System (AHRS) unit simulated or rendered inoperative.
