Can anyone tell me the exact books I need to get from Avex for the IR theory exam? I have written and passed all the other subjects. Avex is trying to justify quoting me for the whole CPL set as it is all included in the exam.

Hi
Give them a Call and specify to them that you are looking for the instrument rating exam set of books only!
If I am not mistaken,the last I seen the price was around R2200.

Hi there - since nobody takes a VFR CPL seriously, I think everybody should be offering IFR ground schooling as a first option. I certainly do not bother with "VFR training" at all - though their are sometimes chopper guys who do not want IFR ratings, as they never intend being employed as a pilot.

The challenge comes from the fact that many IFR students still do not get it - there is very little difference between the IFR syllabus and the complete CPL syllabus. Basically IFR Procedures are added and they exclude Navigation and ATG to a large extend. That is why schools will most probably just sell the IFR student a near complete CPL theoretical syllabus.

Attached is a detailed copy of the CAA IFR syllabus.

Regards,
Brand

One question regarding the break down of this exams subjects

Can I use ATP notes to study from instead of Com notes ?
Reason I'm asking is because I did my Com years ago so instead of me getting new com notes just for this exam, Can I Just get the ATP notes and start studying for ATP subjects and use that theory to write the IF exam?
unless my com notes are still up to date (doubtful) its 2009 Aeronav's books.

If anyone has or knows where I can get ATP notes without selling an arm let me know. It will be much appreciated

Thanks

Firstly Pilotexams has a direct link to the additional study material (FAA etc) that comprises 40% of the exam (so called IR questions). The other 60% can be found in Exam 11 and the CPL Questions on Pilotexams.
