(Effective September 08, 2023)
Your Instrument Rating Renewal can be completed in the aircraft or one of our simulators. A renewal of a Group 1 (multi engine) and Group 3 (single engine) instrument rating can be done in either our Level 5 AL Sim AL250 or AL Sim ALX. The amount of instruction will vary depending on the pilot’s ability and level of experience. Most pilots require about 5 hours of simulator time prior to the Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC). The IPC can be challenged at any time as no letter-of-recommend is required.
For renewals that have expired for less then 24 months, only an IPC will be needed to renew the rating.
Pilots wishing to pursue a Renewal should contact the Manager of Multi Engine Operations at the Club.
Please note pilots wishing to upgrade their license to an Airline Transport License (ATPL) must complete the renewal flight test in an aircraft as per the Canadian Aviation Regulations 421.34. Number of hours will be based on the pilot’s competencies.
