Instrument Flight Training
PHS was Australia’s first helicopter flight school to offer Instrument Flight Training in 1987 and now this syllabus is back. Our Instrument flight training course includes training in Australia’s best Cat ‘B’ synthetic trainer featuring ‘control loading’ which makes our trainer feel like a real helicopter.
This feature is not offered by any other flight school and makes the transition from Synthetic Flight Training Device (SFTD) to the actual helicopter, seamless.
Our SFTD cockpit is also an exact copy of the AS355 F2 that we offer for basic instrument training, this allows for the students to step straight from the SIM to flying on instruments, in the real aircraft, with confidence from the first flight.
Our instrument syllabus is fully Part 61 compliant ensuring that your training will meet the highest standards as set by CASA.
To complete the Instrument Rating Syllabus you will be required to complete the following (these requirements may change depending on qualifications already held):
- Gain a pass in the Instrument Rating Examination (IREX)
- 20 hours of Synthetic Flight Training
- 20 hours of Instrument Flight Training in the actual aircraft
Airspace and navigation Aids in and around the Moorabbin Airport (YMMB) area offer the ideal airspace to conduct all the sequences required, in the most time efficient manner, with minimum transit times between approach sequences.
If operating Off Shore, SAR or EMS helicopters is your intended career path then Helicopter Instrument flight training provided by PHS, is a must.
