Genesis Flight College’s ALSIM 250 Provides Currency Training & Group 1 or 3 Flight Tests for Instrument Proficiency Checks.

Intrument Proficiency Check SimulatorThe ALSIM 250 can be set up as a generic aircraft with a single or multiple engines and with a 6-pack instrument setup or EFIS instrumentation. The instructor can introduce the full range of emergency scenarios regarding avionics or aircraft systems.

The precise amount of training will be dependent on the applicant’s state of currency. As a minimum, an applicant should expect a 2-hour introductory flight to learn the system and at least one more flight prior to the flight test. After that, the decision to attempt the IPC ride can be made between the applicant and instructor.

Benefits of an Instrument Proficiency Check

  • Training is independent of weather; the IPC can be completed on a predictable schedule.
  • Reduced cost compared to aircraft rental
  • Instructors can create many different scenarios that will expose the applicant to a wide range of realistic IFR situations.
  • Approaches into the fog of the Maritimes, the valleys of the Rockies and any other interesting location in North America can be flown.
  • Flight time can be optimized; long legs between locations can be shortened to get to the pertinent activity quickly.
  • If an applicant wants to experience actual IFR conditions, this can be arranged because Genesis routinely flies in true IFR conditions.

NOTE: Our sim is certified for IPC, and we conduct IPCs regularly. If your goal is to meet the requirements of CAR 421.34 (5) for your ATP license application, which requires an aircraft or Level C or D sim, our sim does not meet that requirement. To meet the requirements of CAR 421,34 (5), expect multiple flights in the DA42 to execute all manoeuvres and procedures set forth in Division XIV for the issue of a Group 1 instrument rating.

This program does not require approval under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005.
