Period 2

5 hrs

  • Complete pre-flight procedures.
  • Complete normal checklists using flow patters developed and practiced on period 1 accurately using checklist after the flow pattern is completed.
  • Manage electrical system during normal, emergency operation and perform an external power start using proper checklist. (external power start may be simulated if power cart is not available at the training airport)
  • Accomplish proper checklist for abnormal starts, fire during start procedure, hot starts and cold starts (for injected engines)
  • Accomplish selected instrument approaches were difficulty was observed in period 1.
  • Accomplish Engine shutdown in flight (Multi Engine). Accomplish Engine failure after takeoff (Single Engine) return to landing field.
  • Accomplish post landing procedures using flow patterns learned in period 1.

Period 3

5 hrs

  • Complete Takeoff and Landing data from information provided by instructor
  • Start Engine flooded condition or Hot Start (turbine).
  • Accomplish Emergency procedures for engine fire in flight. (Including let down to an appropriate landing field Single Engine).
  • Accomplish checklist procedures for PFD/MFD failure (if so equipped)
  • Manage fuel system in normal and abnormal/emergency situations using proper checklist procedures.
  • Accomplish instrument approaches single engine (Multi- Engine).
  • Accomplish engine failure enroute¬† simulated IFR with let down to an instrument approach (Single Engine).
  • Complete all post landing procedures.

Period 4

5 hrs

  • Complete Takeoff and Landing data for High Density Altitude assigned by instructor.
  • Complete 500 mile cross country trip planning. Discuss recognition of critical weather, use of on-board weather radar, satellite weather data for hazardous weather avoidance and circumnavigation.
  • Develop personal minimums checklist.
  • Properly complete all normal checklist procedures using flow and checklist.
  • Manage gear system failures, including manual extension using checklist.
  • Manage multiple failures (elec system, gear system) (elec system, Anti ice)
  • Plan time and rate to descend considering possibility of icing in descent approach phase.
  • Accomplish oxygen and pressurization system failures and emergency descent procedures.
  • Accomplish selected instrument approach procedures.
  • Complete performance Takeoff and Landings Including short and soft field procedures.
  • Complete all post landing procedures.

Period 5

5 hrs
