AMOUNT AND DURATION OF FLIGHT INSTRUCTIONS

A single-engine IR(A) course consists of 50 hours instrument time under instruction of which up to 35 hours may be instrument ground time in a FNTP II.

A multi-engine IR(A) course consists of 55 hours instrument time under instruction, of which up to 40 hours may be instrument ground time in a FNTP II. The remaining instrument flight instruction includes at least 15 hours in multi-engine aeroplanes.

The holder of a single-engine IR(A) who also holds a multi-engine class rating wishing to obtain a multi-engine IR(A) for the first time shall complete a course comprising at least 5 hours instruction in instrument flying in multi-engine aeroplane, of which 3 hours may be in a FNTP II.

The course consists of two modules:

  • Basic Instrument Flight Module; and
  • Procedural Instrument Flight Module.

When a flight simulator is used for training, initially both modules simulator exercises can be completed and then continue with the training in aircraft.  All instrument flight training lessons may be flown in the aircraft or specified lessons may be completed in a FNTP II.
