Part 2: R/T practical part

The IFR R/T-testing scenario is a simulation of an actual flight.

AEPS developed various scenarios for the practical part of the IFR R/T-testing, which are revamped on a regular interval.

The scenarios contain information for the candidate regarding:

  • Departure and arrival airport
  • Radio-frequencies available (DELIVERY, GND, TWR, Departure, En route, Approach…)
  • Approach plates

The simulation of the R/T focuses on:

  • IFR-Clearance
  • Push-back
  • Taxi-clearance
  • Switch to TWR frequency
  • Line-up and take-off clearance
  • Contact Departure frequency
  • IFR manoeuvres (Climb, holding, approach)
  • Descent
  • Inbound/outbound to/from arrival station
  • Vectoring/turning instructions
  • Approach
  • Landing clearance
  • Change to TWR frequency

My tips:

  • This exercise is very important to demonstrate your knowledge and ease of utilization of the ICAO standard phraseology.
  • For acronyms and abbreviations, you may be asked to explain their meaning.
  • The virtual flight may include an emergency situation.
