What do the colors mean?

Each copy of the DIY Private Pilot Tabs will come with a color guide that details how to interpret each color used on these tabs. The tabs are color coded by Private Pilot regulations, Instrument regulations, Commercial regulations and AIM Chapters. Two-Toned tabs are used when two or more tabs are on the same page. This makes finding individual regulations easier when they are on the same page. 

 What is tabbed out?

The tabs are created from ASA’s suggested study list (found in the FAR/AIM itself). Not every single regulation found on the list is tabbed out (in order to prevent overcrowding the book with tabs). Instead, the most important and commonly focused-on regulations have been tabbed.

Expensive and very professional looking

I have to admit I thought the product included the FAR/AIM. Paying $49 for stickers alone seems pricey. But when I received them I have to admit, they’re very good looking and should make using the FAR/AIM as a reference much easier.

Excellent Customer Service

Thank you for advising me on which tabbed FAR/AIM book to purchase and getting it to me in a few days!

Exactly what I needed leading up to my IR checkride

Well made and easy to apply. These are exactly what I needed to make referencing my FAR/AIM a breeze.

It’s not perfect (yet), but it does the Job, is accompanied by personal guidance, and that’s what...

Having pre-labeled tabs, as well as a page number guide, certainly saved me a lot of time and frustration. The installation instructions are personable— straight from the people that work hard to make the pre-tabbed FAR/AIMs. The one feature I was dissatisfied with was the fact that all the tabs are in random coloration, and it seems they do not coordinate. I really wish I could tell enough of a difference between the PPL, Instrument, and Commercial tabs. As someone studying for their PPL first, my hope was to be able to install each set at a time. Unfortunately all the tabs are mixed in, and color doesn’t seem to matter. Nonetheless, it is better than nothing, and I appreciate the great effort taken to make tabbing my book easier. North Star certainly did aid in that.
