// Basic Instrument.

The Enroute-IR (Instrument Rating) is an additional rating for people who are currently in the possession of a valid PPL license. Holders of the qualification are allowed to fly the enroute part of their journey in IMC (Instrument Meteorological conditions) weather under IFR rules but the take-off and landing needs to be done under VFR conditions. This allows you to expands the possibilities when willing to perform longer navigation flights since you are able to fly safely in all weather conditions.

What are the requirements?

  • A valid PPL license
  • Class 2 medical certificate with IR audiometry test
  • Hold at least a PPL(A) and have completed at least 20 hours of cross-country flight
    time as PIC in aeroplanes.
  • Night rating (not mandatory)

What does the course include?

The training consists of both a practical part as a theoretical part. The theoretical part is given just like our other courses by means of distance learning, so that each candidate can study at their own pace. When the theoretical part is finished, the candidate has to do a series of mandatory theoretical exams.

Parallel with the theoretical training, the practical part will be done. This is given on our state of the art Cirrus SR22 with Garmin G1000 avionics with well qualified instructors who are also pilots on the corporate jets at ASL. When both is finished, each candidate has to do a practical exam to complete the course.

  • Learn to fly safely in all weather conditions.

  • Do your training on our modern and performant Cirrus SR22.

  • Theoretical course by means of distance learning .

// Full-IR.

During your flight training you first learn to fly by sight. That’s fine, of course, but it does limit your options. Visual flying, or visual flight, is of no use if there is nothing to see due to clouds or fog.
In that case, your instruments from your on-board computer will come in handy. This allows you to fly under almost all circumstances, including in bad weather. This is required Instrument Rating required.

Instrument Rating

The Instrument Rating is perhaps the most important qualification there is. Unless you plan to fly exclusively in bright weather for the rest of your life, this rating is a must for any pilot. IR not only gives you more freedom to fly whenever you want, but also increases your flying competence and thus your safety. The IR is a compulsory part of the ATPL training. In addition, many sport and professional pilots obtain this rating in addition to their PPL or CPL certification.

The course consists of the following parts:

  • Precision and non-precision instrument approaches
  • Missed approach procedures
  • Standard instrument departures
  • Vliegen op airways
  • Standard instrument arrivals en noodprocedures in Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC)
  • Holdings (VOR, NDB)
  • Intercepties (VOR, NDB)
  • Procedure turns
  • DME arcs
  • Circling approaches

The course of the course looks like this:

  • 35 uur instructie in de FNPT2 Cirrus SR22 flight simulator met Garmin G1000 glass cockpit. Je kunt alle IR uren eventueel ook “real-time” trainen in Antwerpen
  • 15 uur instructie in de Cirrus SR20 (G1000)
  • 15 uur briefings, met de benodigde documenten en manuals;
  • 1 skill test
  • Ingangseisen Single Engine IR

To be allowed to participate in the practical training IR, you must meet the following entry requirements:

  • In het bezit van een PPL-brevet of een CPL-brevet (met nachtkwalificatie als je ook ’s nachts wil vliegen)
  • In het bezit van een Single Engine Piston (SEP) Rating
  • 50 uur vliegervaring als PIC met crosscountrynavigatie in dezelfde klasse Single Engine Piston
  • Geslaagd zijn voor het IR-theoriegedeelte (ATPL-opleiding of EASA PART-FCL Instrument Rating)
  • Geldig medisch certificaat EASA klasse 1 of klasse 2 met IR check
  • Learn to fly safely in all weather conditions.

  • Do your training on our modern and performant Cirrus SR22.

  • Theoretical course by means of distance learning .
