Instrument Rating - IR(H)

Our Flight Navigation Procedures Trainer (FNPT II) is a non-motion simulator for training the procedural elements of the Instrument Rating (H) course. The flight training simulator allows Sloane to teach procedures in a wide variety of simulated weather conditions and scenarios.

In accordance with EASA PART FCL, the IR(H) (Instrument Rating Course) consists of a minimum of 40 hours simulator training and a minimum of 10 hours flight training in a Leonardo AW109. Before the aircraft flying phase of the course, applicants must hold a Leonardo AW109 Type Rating qualification. If required, Sloane can provide this training.

Minimum requirements for applicants attending an IR(H) course include holding a PPL(H) with a night qualification, or a valid CPL(H). Applicants must also have passed theoretical knowledge examinations in a number of subjects. If the AW109 is the applicants first multi engine type, they must also hold an ATPL(H) of equivalent exam passes.
