Skills test for an IR

61.11.4 (1) An applicant for an IR must have passed a skills test with a DFE as prescribed in Document SA-CATS 61.

(2) Where the skills test was successfully completed in a single engine aeroplane or FSTD approved for the purpose, the IR will be endorsed with SEA.

(3) Where the skills test was successfully completed in a multi-engine aeroplane or FSTD approved for the purpose, the IR will be endorsed with the MEA and the SEA.

(4) A multi-engine centerline thrust aeroplane shall be considered a single-engine aeroplane for the purposes of this subpart.

(5) Where the skills test was successfully completed in a single engine or multi-engine helicopter or FSTD approved for the purpose, the IR will be endorsed with H.

(6) Where the skills test was successfully completed in a multi-pilot operation, the IR will be restricted with the endorsement MP. The restriction will be removed when the IR holder has successfully completed a revalidation check in a single-pilot operation.

(7) The applicant must undergo the skills test within 36 months of passing the theoretical knowledge examination and within 30 days of the last period of dual instruction towards the IR.

(8) A skills test for the issue of an IR conducted after the first competency check for a PPL or CPL will revalidate the maintenance of competency of the licence as applicable, in the same aircraft category.
