FAQ

 

To comply with EASA regulations as stated in (FCL.905.TRI), an applicant for an initial TRI certificate shall:

(a) hold a CPL, MPL or ATPL for the applicable aircraft category in which flight instruction is to be given

  • Completed at least 1500 hours flight time as a pilot of a multi-pilot aircraft
  • Completed within the 12 months preceding the application at least 30 route sectors, including take-offs and landings as pilot in command or co-pilot on the applicable aircraft type he/she will instruct, of which not more than 15 sectors may be completed in a flight simulator.

 

To become a TRI or SFI, you must gain adequate training in teaching and learning processes, flight and synthetic flight instruction.

A TRI training course shall include:

(1) At least 25 hours of teaching and learning;

(2) 10 hours of technical training related to the applicable aircraft type, including revision of technical knowledge, the preparation of lesson plans and the development of classroom/simulator instructional skills;

(3) 5 hours of flight instruction for single-pilot aircraft or 10 hours for multi-pilot aircraft on the applicable aircraft type or an FFS representing that type.

(4) Additional training when instructional privileges are sought in accordance with FCL.905.TRI (b)(4), (c)(1) or (c)(2).

NaviMinds does not offer the simulator training needed for issuing SFI/TRI licenses – we only run the theoretical part. The teaching and learning part of the course shall be completed first and may be completed separately from the other parts of the course at a different ATO.

According to EASA:

“Training should be both theoretical and practical. Practical elements should include the development of specific instructor skills, particularly in the area of teaching and assessing threat and error management and CRM.”
