Flight Instructor Rating Tests and Training Endorsements
RPL PPL CPL And NVFR Testing.
Recent changes to CASA Part 61 requirements for the testing of initial instructor ratings have now been included in the syllabuses and
Operations Manuals of the majority of flight training schools.
It is highly recommended that you seek advice before booking a test to ensure that you meet the criteria, both for initial issue
and upgrades and steve can help you with this.
How do I prepare for my test?
If you are sitting for an initial Grade 3 A test, you will need to be recommended by your CFI on the appropriate form.
You should be thoroughly familiar with the FEH (Flight Examiner Handbook), so that you know how the test will be conducted and the
competencies to be met.. A good working knowledge of the Part 61 Manual of Standards is required, as well as knowing the privileges
and limitations of the rating you seek.
Make sure that you have a current medical class 1 and a pass in the school PMI exam and CASA PMI exam conducted with ASL.( only
required for Initilal G3 A Instructor Rating.
The CASA requirements for instructor upgrades and renewals ( proficiency checks) and training endorsements are clearly defined in the
CASR Part 61. A course of training must be undertaken for the addition of a training endorsement you may wish to add to your existing
rating. Training Endorsements that can be added for example are design feature training endorsements and NVFR training
endorsements. If a training endorsement is added to your existing rating 6 months or more after obtaining your initial rating this can count
as a proficiency check giving you 24 months and saving costs for you. Speak to or contact me for details.
You can count on me to put you at ease during your test and conduct the test in a fair an impartial manner.
