The objective of the IR course is to enable the student to reach the skill level required to fly mutli-engine aircraft in instrument conditions.
The holder of an IR may fly an aircraft in instrument conditions to a decision height of 200 feet (60 m).
In the case of an IRME the holder may extend this decision height to below 200 feet if specific training is successfully completed in a multi-crew aircraft section 6 of the practical examination according to appendix 9 of regulation EU-1178/2011.
Instrument flight is considered to be dangerous for unprepared pilots. The IR course gradually introduces the flying techniques required as well as the use of radio navigation equipment and instrument departures and approaches.
The physiological side of human factors will become evident as the student encounters real-life instrument weather conditions. Believing the instruments and having a good scanning cycle are the keys to mastering instrument flight in instrument conditions.
To begin the course candidates must hold:
at least a PPL (A) with:
Candidates must have completed at least 50 hours of cross country flight as pilot in command.
For students who have obtained a CPL outside of the EPAG NG an assessment of competency will be made before course entry.
The IR-ME training is divided into two parts:
Diplomas and examinations
The IR-ME is issued after successfully passing the practical flight test with an approved examiner.
