Applied Instrument Instructor Rating (IRI)

The Applied Instrument Instructor course comprises a minimum of 5hours flight training in the Piper PA28 and ground school dependent on qualification. If you require a stand alone IRI, then 25 hours of ground school is required, if however you are removing the “No Applied Instrument” restriction from your Instructor Rating then the ground school element is reduced to a minimum of 10 hours.

The course involves learning the techniques required to teach all full and partial panel manoeuvres, radio beacon tracking, precision and non-precision instrument approaches. The technical subjects covered include; the function and failure indications of the instruments and radio aids, flight planning, IFR rules and regulations and minima calculations.

Before embarking on the course it is useful for the student instructor to revise some of the subjects particularly appropriate to instrument flying such as, Meteorological conditions and limitations for instrument flight, instruments and their systems, flight planning and basic instrument flying techniques. Human factors of flying on instruments are also in important topic to understand.

The flight test is carried out from Shoreham normally with an in house examiner.
