Operating an aircraft solely by reference to instruments.
Altitudes covers IFR altitude names. Also includes the definition of what you must see in order to descend below the DA/MDA.
Approaches covers Instrument approaches and related topics.
Departures covers Instrument departures and departing under IFR/Picking up IFR in flight.
IFR Flight Plans covers contents of an IFR flight plan.
Navigation covers IFR navigation methods.
Required Equipment covers minimum equipment and maintenance checks for VFR as well as IFR.
When in VMC, it’s your responsibility to follow See and Avoid, when in IMC, it’s ATCs responsibility.
