New guidance for your IPC

Monday, November 10th, 2008

Those of you with instrument ratings know what an IPC is, and those with VFR ratings are saying, “Huh?” Pilots with instrument ratings are required to stay proficient, or to take a test if they don’t. An IPC is that test, the instrument proficiency check to be exact. Here’s a guide from the FAA.¬† Take a look.

I also found an IPC Sporty’s video on YouTube that covers standard rate turns. For VFR pilots, that is the type of turn you want to make if you enter weather unexpectedly. Click here to go to YouTube.

Pilots working at AOPA are required to take an IPC every year, whether they maintain¬† proficiency or not. It’s a great idea for finding out what you don’t know.
