International Procedures Recurrent (Traditional Classroom)

FlightSafety has overhauled its International Procedures Recurrent in-center course. This completely revised International Procedures Recurrent course will re-familiarize the pilot with aspects of International Procedures per FAA Advisory Circular 91-70B; applicable sections of FAA Order 8900.1, Volume 4, Chapter 12; ICAO Annexes 1, 2, and 6; ICAO Documents 7030,8168, 9613, 9869, and 10037 (GOLD Manual) along with contingency procedures from ICAO Document 4444.  The course is compliant with Transport Canada CASS 724.115(25)(a), 724.115(35), 724.115(37)(a-d) and Transport Canada Ops Specs 611 and 614.

This new course covers the most current topics and changes to international flying such as RLatSM, North Atlantic High Level Airspace (NAT HLA), RNP1, and more. The course is built around the following topics:

  • Fundamentals of International Procedures
  • Communication, Navigation, and Surveillance (CNS)
  • Airspace and Special Areas of Operations (SAO)
  • QFE Operations
  • Navigation and Plotting
  • Aviation Meteorology

By the end of this course, pilots will be able to:

  • Identify the recent changes affecting international flight operations.
  • Describe various contingency situations and appropriate responses.
  • Recognize human factors and mitigation strategies associated with fatigue for international flight operations.
  • Explain Performance Based Navigation (PBN) and recognize requirements for compliance with various PBN standards.
  • Recognize the importance of effective navigational procedures and explain techniques for position plotting and proper waypoint verification.
  • Describe RVSM (Reduced Vertical Separation Minimums), NAT HLA (North Atlantic High Level Airspace), and various PBN and other airspace areas.
  • Indicate the location of various airspace areas including RVSM, NAT HLA, and PBN and identify the requirements and procedures for operations within them.
  • Discuss general meteorological considerations that may affect flight planning for international operations and resources used.
