The Course Entry Requirements are
- Private, Commercial, Multi Pilot or ATP License (PPL(A), CPL(A)/IR, MPL(A), ATPL(A))
- Valid SEP IR(A)
- Valid Medical
- Minimum 200 Flight hours and 70 hours PIC
- 8 days of ground school (min. 45 hours) in classroom
- min. 10 hours of flight training on aircraft
- min. 2 hours ground training on aircraft
The course must be completed in a maximum time of 6 months.
|1.||Aircraft, Engines, Equipment for normal and abnormal Operation||7|
|3.||Performance, Flightplanning and Supervision of Flight Parameter||7|
|4.||Loading,Center of Gravity, Preperation/ Groundhandling of the Aircraft||6|
|6.||Special Regulations for Aircraft with Glascockpit and EFIS Systems||6|
|7.||Additional Equipment/Flightmanagementsystems (GPS)||5|
A Multiple-Choice-Test with 100 questions is used to test the theoretical knowledge taught in ground school.
12 hours of the Flight Training for the Class Rating are done on the aircraft.
2 hours can be Ground Training on the aircraft
Emergency procedures and simulated engine failures need to be trained by a CRI(A) during the training.
Practical Examination/ Skill Test
The Check Flight is done on the same aircraft as used in the flight training sessions. To pass the test the student pilot shows the necessary skills, knowledge and behavior to conduct the flight in a safe and professional manner.
