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.
Is it good in terms with info for the caa exam?

Hi Koosvr,

So I assume the best question banks to use would be Pilot Exams and Exam 11?
I used Questionbank and Avex IR notes first time I wrote, thinking of using the Avex along with Exam11 and Pilot Exams for my second sitting.

Kind Regards

Hi Huzaifa,

I found them helpful, however, the IR notes are pretty much the same as the normal CPL Avex set, they've just gone and taken out the irrelevant information.

I will continue to use them, I've never used Jeppessen, can't afford it and struggle to study by reading off a pc screen, I passed all my CPL subjects on Avex and Questionbank. But for the instrument rating I am going to use Pilotexam and Exam11 alongside the Avex notes.

Kind Regards
Josh

Hi all,

I recently passed the IR exam. If anyone is planning on writing this exam and has questions on it, I’d be happy to assist.

A word of advice to those planning on writing:
I would suggest passing all subjects at CPL (or higher) first before taking the exam. Make sure you understand the CPL content as the exam is largely based on this knowledge and questions from the current CPL database are used in the IR exam.
Also, ICAO DOC 8168 Vol 1 is really important - they ask specific details from it so a good understanding of it is essential.
They also ask practical questions where you need to apply Doc 8168 and CAR/CATS aspects to local scenarios. A simple example; you’ll get an approach plate and be asked what the MDH is for the given weather conditions using a VOR taking into account the OCH.

There is certainly a lot of content to cover for the exam so take your time to prepare well. Only go book your exam when you feel that you are ready; otherwise it will only put more pressure on you. If you don’t succeed, don’t be disheartened, try again and learn from your mistakes. I believe that if you are willing to put in the hours, a pass is really within your reach!

Good luck to everyone wanting to write!
