ATB’s reviewed and corrected edition:
However, while FAA did a terrific job with the development of this Handbook, many technical errors were made. (for example, MS fittings are color coded green, not blue). In these ATB editions, errors of this type have been identified and corrected. And so no more instances in your training when the instructor’s presentation does not agree with the book. A complete log of all corrections can be found on page v of each volume or may be requested separately at orders@actechbooks.com.
