Basic instrument flight training - gap training for flight instructors
CASA has developed a basic instrument flight training gap training course that flight training operators can use to train their instructors to conduct basic instrument flight training. This training is taken from the night VFR rating training endorsement sample course. CASA is proposing to incorporate the basic instrument flight training gap training course into the grade 3 aeroplane training endorsement in the future.
The sample training course comprises long briefs, pre-flight briefs and two aircraft lessons. Training can be supplemented by using a flight simulation training device - this is not covered in the sample course.
The course document includes background information, general guidance on training courses, the course itself and the draft unit of competency which is the basis of the sample course. A course completion certificate is also included.
