Proficiency Training

In addition to our listed trainings, we also do the following:

IPC (Instrument Prof Check 61.57)

This course is designed for pilots who need an Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC) to regain instrument currency and have gone 12 months or more without fulfilling the required six approaches, intercept, and track of a radial, and demonstrated hold. FAR 61.57(d)(1)(ii)

National Flight Simulator reserves the right to require the IPC Evaluation & Refresher prior to providing the Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC) to any candidate. The decision as to whether an IPC candidate will need the IPC Evaluation & Refresher prior to the actual IPC program will be reached mutually by National Flight Simulator instructors and the customer jointly.

Part One: Evaluation and Refresher

  • IPC Refresher would consist of a 1 hour oral examination and 1 hour simulator ride to evaluate what training/proficiency is required. At that point the instructor and student would develop a tailored lesson plan to address the deficient areas.   After the completion they would then be ready for the IPC**.

    • Evaluation & Refresher Program

    • IPC** Additional “training costs” will be predicated upon the amount of time necessary to be ready to fulfill the IPC requirements and set at a rate per hour for the instructor and the simulator.

Part Two:

This five (5) hour IPC course provides up to 3 hours in the FAA Approved, Elite iGate 500/600 Series AATD with a qualified instructor. If the candidate has been away from flying for a year or more, additional time may be required for completion (see IPC Evaluation & Refresher above). Please discuss these issues with the assigned Certified Flight Instructor.

A personalized, customized and tailored IPC syllabus is available to meet the pilot’s individual needs.

6 ‘n 6 Plus
Because maintaining your IFR currency, particularly in the Northern Regions during winter, can be a daunting task, this course offers a quick and easy way to get and remain IFR current, and to strengthen your instrument proficiency. FAR 61.57(c)(1); (c)(3); (c)(4)

Single Pilot IFR Proficiency Training, just remaining “legal or current” is not enough today. Developing and maintaining your Proficiency is crucial. Being prepared for partial panel, system failures or other “unexpected situations” can be the difference. Our focus is on preparedness for the unexpected for the Single pilot in IMC.

  • Flight Review (BFR 61.56) FAA required for pilots every 2 years

  • 1-Day Refresher can be used in lieu of recurrent based on insurance approval

  • Differences upon request

  • Transition Training upon request. The syllabus will be designed specifically for that transition and tailored to the pilot.

Unlike other training facilities, we only train pilots from the same organization in one course. We specialize in one-on-one training as well as crews and companion pilots.
