Veritair says it is also about to launch a new training school for private and commercial helicopter pilots and have plans to introduce an instrument flight simulator on site, which will provide advanced instrument flight rules training, enabling pilots to qualify to fly in all weather situations.
IFR is aviation shorthand for instrument flight rules. It means it's so cloudy that pilots aren't allowed to take off unless they are able to fly by instruments alone and have earned an IFR rating.
But experts contend that an engineer with some pilot background (knowledge of basic flight dynamics, weather, instrument flight rules, Federal Aviation Administration [FAA] rules, etc.), experience with home-computer flight-simulator games, extensive familiarity with flight systems and mission planning, and 250 to 500 hours of simulator time would be a model candidate as a remote pilot for the Global Hawk.
In his report on the incident, the pilot stated, "I would have really been sweating if it had been instrument flight rules in that mountain area.
Both the precision and nonprecision approaches are typical of controlled flight today, called instrument flight rules, or IFR.
This questionnaire required participants to provide demographic and background information including age, sex, total flight hours (dual and solo), total VFR hours, total instrument flight rules (IFR) hours (simulated and actual), total hours of cross-country flight, total number of cross-country flights (dual and solo), and total number of hours flown in the last 30 and 90 days.
The TH-57 Sea Ranger is used to train several hundred student naval aviators with 45 TH-57Bs (for primary visual flight rules training) and 71 TH-57Cs (for advanced instrument flight rules training) in two helicopter training squadrons at NAS Whiting Field, Milton, Fla.
"While we're not required by the FAA to do so, we have all of our VFR (Visual Flight Rules) pilots take an IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) checkride in a simulator twice a year," explained Harding.
There is cause for concern when you consider that air from a Forest Service prescribed burn is occasionally heavy enough (during inversion periods) to close down a state highway in South Carolina, or to cause an international airport in the same region to go to IFR (instrument flight rules) for a day.
The display lets pilots seamlessly upload flight information via Wi-Fi and includes advanced technologies like Honeywell's SmartView synthetic vision system, 2-D and 3-D moving maps, visual flight rules sectional charts, and instrument flight rules high- and low-altitude charts.
