Phase 1 - SIMULATION
The Frasca 242 simulator is used as an introduction to multi-engine operations as well as instrument flying procedures such as standard instrument departures and 2D/3D instrument approaches. It is also a good opportunity to get comfortable with the electric flight information system and GPS. Approximately 20 hours are conducted on the Frasca 242 simulator.
Course Key information
Are there any prerequisites?
Yes, you need to hold at minimum a private pilots licence.
How is the course structured?
The course will cover the requirements for the issue of a MEA Class Rating and a MEA Instrument Rating. Additional flights may be necessary to meet the night flying requirement. However, to save costs, these can be conducted in our G1000 C172. There are seven hours of briefings covering multi- engine and IFR operations. We will also provide you with some training material that can be viewed in your own time.
Generally, a full-time course is completed in as little as six weeks, but on average, you could expect to complete the course within 6-8 weeks to account for possible weather restrictions. However, if you prefer to take a slower approach, you can choose to complete the course at a pace that suits your lifestyle.
Do you provide theory classes for IREX?
To save cost, we recommend self-studying the IREX material using Bob Tait or ATC. If needed, we can arrange some one-on-one instructor time to assist with some of the theory items, though this would be at a cost (price will be advised upon application). Keep in mind the IREX theory credit must be obtained before attempting the flight test.
Can I do my IPC with SFC, and what will the cost be?
Yes. Your recency and experience will determine the cost as it is competency-based. Call us for further details.
I already have a MEA Class Rating. Can I just do the IR portion?
Yes, some of the flights in the course won’t be required. This should make the course cheaper.
Can I do just a MEA Class Rating?
Yes, we can do the training for the MEA Class Rating. This would involve four flights and an IPT, then the flight test. The cost will be between $3500 - $4000, though it doesn’t include the flight test.
Can I come to SFC and look at the aircraft?
Yes, just let us know when you plan on coming through so we can organise someone to show you around.
I would like to do my training on the weekends, is this possible?
Yes, we can conduct the training on the weekends.
What instrument approaches will I be trained to do?
You will obtain the IAP2D and IAP3D endorsements, and training will cover NDB, DGA, VOR, RNAV, and ILS IAP. The flight test will only assess VOR, RNAV, and ILS. However, NDB and DGA can be assessed in the IPT after the flight to reduce costs.
*Are there any additional costs?
Our pricing is inclusive of instructor fees, approach fees, landing fees, briefing time and fuel. Flight tests are an additional cost. pricing is calculated on completion of training following a structured competency based syllabus.
