IMC Theory One Day Course and Exam 4th October 2019

Training

Submitted by: Linda Wheeler

Linda Wheeler Ground School is running a one day IMC course on Friday 4th October 2019 in Gerrards Cross (near Denham Aerodrome) Course fee including the exam is £250.

 

What does it cover?

The IMC Training Day and Examination covers the following areas: *Requirements, Privileges, Revalidation/Renewal Criteria

*Minima and Airspace usage

*Weather

*Pressure instruments

*Gyroscopic Instruments

*The Compass

*The VOR

*The ILS

*The ADF/NDB

*DME *GPS/RNAV/GNSS

*Airspace

*Holding

*Types of Approaches

*Understanding Instrument Approaches

*Flight Planning Reminders Pre-Reading

 

The basics of all of the above should already be understood from the PPL syllabus with the exception, perhaps, of Types and Understanding of Instrument Approaches. The Air Pilots Manual Volume 5 (The old Trevor Thoms) is a good place to refresh your knowledge.

 

Where do people usually struggle on the course?

Like it or not, the UK CAA do not allow electronic flight planning tools to be used in the examination. The area where most people have problems is with getting back into the swing of using the CRP-1/CRP-5 ‘whiz-wheel’.
