This unit provides you with general handling and navigation training for the Command Instrument Rating. Your flight training will be conducted by an approved external flight training provider. You will accumulate the aeronautical experience required for the Multi-Engine Endorsement and Multi-Engine Command Instrument Rating, both in a simulator and a light aircraft. You will have the opportunity to identify meteorological conditions that require instrument navigation. You will also further develop your critical reflection and self-analysis skills enabling you to improve your instrument flight rules and procedures operating skills. During this unit, you will keep a reflective journal which will assist you in presenting a critical analysis of your experience at the end of the unit. You will research and compare the technology requirements and human factors that underpin the instrument and visual flying practices. After completing this unit, you will meet the requirements for the issue of a Multi-Engine Command Instrument Rating.
