EASA Instrument Ratings IR
EASA Instrument Ratings IR

The versions of Instrument Ratings according to EASA:
o
o
o
IR(A), IR(H), the "classic" Instrument Rating, aeroplane and helicopter, without restrictions
Competency-based IR CBIR, aeroplanes only, according ICAO standards, for all phases of flight
Enroute IR EIR, aeroplanes only, valid only within EASA member states (except a third country
would explicitly allow the use of the EIR). Instrument flight enroute only, no Departures, Arrivals
and Approaches allowed.

Prerequisites for all IRs: PPL(A) or CPL(A) in the respective category, for "Standard IR" ATPL in another
category is accepted

The new regulations come into effect 1st February 2015 at the latest

An approval for night flying (NIT) is only required for IFR by night. IFR flights by day may be conducted
without a NIT rating. This is of interest for candidates which have been denied a NIT so far due to colour
blindness.

The Competency-based IR CBIR training may be undergone on a privately owned aircraft with an
instructor holding the appropriate ratings. 10 hours are to be flown in an approved training organisation
(ATO).

Horizon provides competent and experienced instructors which may train candidates towards the CBIR
and EIR on their own aircraft.

All variants of the IR may be obtained also for High Performance Aeroplanes HPA and multi engine
aircraft. For the HPA, a separate theory course is required (AMC1 FCL.720. A (b)(2)(i)) if no ATPL
theoretical examination has been passed.

The theoretical training towards the CBIR and EIR is identical.

The practical training is completed with a Skill Test (IR Examiner of the FOCA)

The table provides an overview of the most important facts for theoretical and practical training..

Horizon offers the theoretical training of all IR versions as distance learning or classroom courses.
