In the beginning of training, students learn to fly visual by starting their training on the Socata TB-9 Tampico, a single engine piston fully equipped for training Visual Flight Rules (VFR). After approximately 45 hours of flight time, students will finalize the second phase. After passing this exam, students are allowed to bring passengers along on their recreational flights. After 72 hours of flight time, the VFR phase is completed, and students start the Instrument Flight Rules phase (IFR). The IFR phase takes place on the Socata TB-10 Tobago, an aircraft fully equipped with the necessary navigation aids. To familiarize students with severe weather conditions, a portion of this phase is done on our simulators. In the end of the IFR phase, students complete the Instrument rating exam. In the next phase, students learn to fly multi engine aircrafts. For this purpose, AIS Flight Academy has a Cessna T303 Crusader. Students complete their training with a Multi Crew Cooperation on a Cessna Citation Bravo Jet. All phases should be completed with an overall score of ‘standard’.
