Adverse Weather - Monsoon Operations (Simulator)

With this simulator training, pilots will experience various aspects of adverse weather conditions likely to be encountered enroute and in terminal areas. Emphasis will be placed on aircraft performance during takeoff and landing, as well as decreased braking action, in wet/contaminated runway conditions. Pilots will practice weather management and avoidance using all the available resources, and will incorporate the use of their MEL (if applicable). CRM/SRM considerations and practices will be incorporated into all aspects of flight operations in accordance with the FlightSafety CRM/SRM performance standards.

Prerequisite:  The eLearning Adverse Weather – Monsoon Operations ground school must have been completed within the last 12 months.

Course Curriculum:  3.5 hours

  • Brief/Debrief:  1.5 hours
  • Simulator (Pilot Flying):  2.0 hours

Briefing Curriculum:

  • Objectives (technical and human factors)
  • Basic Flight Profile
  • SIM action plan
  • Flight Planning with emphasis on:
    • Aircraft-specific performance and calculation of field lengths for takeoff and landing in wet and contaminated (adverse) runway conditions
    • Weather hazards in monsoon conditions,  avoidance techniques and
    • Airframe-specific procedures (if/when applicable)
