Project Description

Distance Learning Course IR
Instrument-Rating (“full IR”) 

Our Distance Learning Course IR(A/H) encompasses the topics below. It is available in paper (high quality color print in binders) and/or as an electronic license via our CAT eBook Viewer (1) .

Note: Now that we have the Enroute-IR/Competency-based-IR (EIR/CB-IR) for pilots of fixed wing aircraft this „full IR“ course is of interest for helicopter pilots only.

• FPLAN  Flightplanning and -monitoring
• RNAV  Radio Navigation
• INSTR  Instruments
• AIRLAW  Air-Law
• HPL  Human Performance and Limitations *
• MET  Meteorology *
• COMM  Communications

The marked * subjects are not required for holders of a CPL which was obtained already unter JAR-FCL or EASA Part-FCL rules.

This course reduces the required theory time from 150 hours in a classroom to a 15-hours presence seminar in an ATO (Approved Training Organization = flight school) of your choice. The price for this seminar depends on the chosen ATO and is not included in the CAT course.
