To provide the student with the necessary aeronautical knowledge to meet the prerequisites specified in FAR Part 61 for the FAA instrument pilot written examination.
Competencies
  1. Explain the function of flight instruments required for instrument flight rules (IFR) flight, including transponders, radar, and radio aids to navigation
    1. Gain knowledge in Pitot-Static, vacuum, electrical, power plant, and fuel systems
    2. Learn aspects of attitude instrument flying
    3. Gain knowledge of instruments used in instrument navigation
  2. Discuss the use of flight instruments required for instrument flight rules (IFR) flight
    1. Understand the gyros that make instrument flight possible
    2. Understand flight instrument that sense pressure
  3. Learn the limitations of flight instruments required for instrument flight rules (IFR) flight
    1. Learn the source of power for your instruments.
    2. Understand the effects of ice and the pitot-static-system
  4. Acquaint the student with the federal aviation regulations that apply to flight under IFR conditions, the IFR air traffic system and procedures
    1. Obtain knowledge of federal aviation regulations pertinent to obtaining an instrument rating and to any regulations that regulate flight under instrument weather conditions. F.A.R. Part 61, Part 91 and Part 97
    2. Know where to find and how to use NOTAMS, PIREPS, TFRS.
    3. Understand the requirements to obtain a medical certificate and instrument rating
  5. Advise student of the IFR air traffic system and procedures
    1. Familiarize the student with the air traffic procedures used during IFR flight: IFR departure procedures, enroute procedures and arriving procedures.
    2. Learn how to identify and use instruments including VOR, AFD, GPS and DME
  6. Discuss the provisions of the aeronautical information manual pertinent to IFR flight.
    1. Give students IFR procedures set out in the Aeronautical Information Manual. Navigation aids, airspace, air traffic control, emergency procedures and safety of flight
    2. Understand the airport markings and airport lighting as applicable to IFR flight.
  7. Acquaint the student with dead reckoning skills appropriate to IFR navigation, IFR navigation by radio aids using the VOR, ADF, and ILS systems, and the use of IFR charts and instrument approach procedure charts
    1. Develop student skills in predicting performance levels for dead reckoning used in IFR conditions
    2. Predict time, fuel, and distance for departure, enroute, approach, missed approach, and alternate landing sites
    3. Acquaint students with the components and usage of VOR, ADF, and ILS systems for use in IFR navigation
  8. Explain the use of aviation weather reports and forecasts, and the elements of forecasting weather trends on the basis of that information and personal observation of weather conditions
    1. Learn how to obtain and interpret aviation weather reports and forecasts for IFR flights
    2. Learn the elements of forecasting weather trends to aid in interpreting weather reports and to aid in personal observation of weather conditions
    3. Learn the safe and efficient operation of airplanes under instrument weather conditions
  9. Gain skills to be used in making IFR flight operation calculations and decisions
    1. Learn about IFR flight planning, how to handle a full or partial loss of required instruments. How to handle all emergencies and decision making.
    2. Learn how to calculate appropriate time, distance and fuel use for amended flight plans and when going to your alternate
