IR - Conversion

Conversion for Instrument Rating

 

IR - Conversion - SEP or ME

All IR-Ratings can be converted to an EASA -IR-Rating.

According the new EASA regulations of 4-2014 there are now 

Two available ways to convert your IR rating.

These are the two possible options:

Full IR-Conversion 
Competence based IR 

The IR(A) normal conversion according EASA consists of:

Theory Training
The full IR theory training with 7 subjects and 7 written exams is required.
or you have the ATPL written exams, this will cover the IR area.

If you need to do the IR theory - please have a look at our distance learning, or residential learning program.

Ground School
If you convert only form ICAO to EASA IR, you will not need any ground school before you can go to the written exams.
If you do the ATPL theory, as a higher level, you need to do all the theory training and the ground school.

Flight Training

  • 10 hrs Simulator training
  • 5 hrs Flight Training

this can be done for SEP and for MEP.

At the end there will be an IR-Skill test on an SEP or on an MEP.


Conversion Requirements for SEP-IR and ME-IR

  • 50 hours of experience as IR-Pilot, pilot in command (not training)

No written Theory exams are required any more!
 
What to do:

  • IR (A) skill test with an EASA examiner
  • answer oral questions related to the IR( EASA) theory before the skill test.

Basically that will be all.

But - please be aware, the requirements for an IR (A) skill test according EASA are much higher than for an FAA‐IR initial skill test.

Knowing this situation we suggest every pilot, who is not a very experience IR-Pilot to undergo a small refresher training (theory and praxis), 

  • IR theory  - and review of the IR procedures
  • SIMULATOR or/and on the Aircraft refresher flight training

you can do this refresher training with us, and we will prepare you for the skill test, so that you will have no problem to pass it.

In the end you have to fly the  IR (A) Skill test with one of our examiners in Jerez.

This is the same skill test, as it was according EASA for the IR(A)
