Modular course IR/ME

General informations

Get the theoretical basics and practical knowledge to earn a rating IR(A).

The goal of a modular course for flying for rating IR(A) is to train pilots to the level of proficiency required to operate with aircraft in accordance with IFR rules and IMC conditions.

The holder of an IR(A) rating for single-engine airplanes, who also has a rating for the type or class of multi-engine airplanes and who wishes to obtain an IR(A) rating for multi-engine airplanes for the first time, shall complete training in organization ATO which covers at least 5 hours of training for instrumental flying on multi-engine aircraft, of which 3 hours may be run on a simulator or FNPT II device.

The course of education

Theoretical part
The theory covers 150 hours of the following subjects
  • aviation law, general knowledge of aircraft, instruments, flight planning and monitoring, human performance, meteorology, radio navigation, IFR communication.
* Lectures are usually held in the afternoon hours two days a week or by agreement
Practical part
Training for IR(A) rating for multi-engine airplanes covers a minimum of 55 hours of instrumental flying with an instructor, of which a maximum of 40 hours on a simulator or FNPT II device. At least 15 hours of the remaining training for instrumental flying is on multi-engine airplanes.

The course consists of two modules that the candidate can make separately or together
  • basic instrumental flying module covers 10 hours of instrumental flying with an instructor, of which may be a maximum of 5 hours of instrumental flying on FNPT II devices or on a simulator. After the module is completed, the candidate gets a course certificate. And
  • procedural instrumental flying module covers the rest of the syllabus for the IR(H) rating, 45 hours with an instructor on a multi-engine airplane, and theoretical training for IR(A) rating.
* The practical part of education depends on weather conditions
