The examination tests the Aeronautical Knowledge requirements specified in CASR Part 61 MOS, Schedule 3.
IREX information Instrument approach procedures for an aerodrome may be presented in the DAP chart as: e.g. 1 - ILS RWY 18 or in some cases RWY 18 ILS e.g. 2 - NDB-A and VOR-A or in some cases NDB and VOR Candidates are to ignore these insignificant differences. Preparation of examination papers requires extensive lead time, and therefore it is not possible to take into account information from unscheduled documents, such as NOTAM. However, if a candidate feels that a question has been affected by NOTAM this should be noted in the scribble pad and reported to the supervisor on completion of the examination.
The AIP SUP is an integral component of the AIP complete and is issued in accordance with a published schedule. Therefore it may be examined.
