(Training can be spilt into multiple visits.)
Introduction:This training syllabus is designed for the pilot applicant to acquire the aeronautical experience and flight proficiency as defined in 14 CFR 61.65 and culminate in taking the Instrument Pilot Practical Test.
This course will include a minimum of 16 hours of ground instruction, 30 hours of instrument instruction in the Cirrus Level 6 Flight Training Device, and 10 hours in the customer provided SR20 or SR22. Additional hours will be set aside for the Practical Test, oral and flight portions. The flight portion of the practical test may be divided between the FTD and the aircraft as per Appendix 1 of the Instrument Practical Test Standards.
During all phases of training, Single Pilot Resource Management, Controlled Flight Into Terrain Training, use of Appropriate Checklists, Positive Exchange of Flight Controls, Attitude Instrument Flying, and Emergency Instrument Procedures will be stressed.
In March of 2011, the FAA approved RTC’s “14 CFR Part 142” Cirrus Airplane Single Engine Instrument Rating Course. Under this approval, RTC’s Level 6 Cirrus Flight Training Device may be used for 30 of the required 40 hours of training required for the instrument rating as prescribed under FAA 14 CFR Part 61.
Objective: Through ground training, flight training in the Level 6 Flight Training Device, and flight training in the Cirrus SR20 or SR22 aircraft, the student will gain the knowledge and develop the skills to safely operate as an Instrument Rated Pilot, and pass the Instrument Rating Practical Test at the completion of this course.
#Differences training between the SR20 and the SR22 models will be integrated throughout the training as appropriate to the customer provided aircraft
