Restricted and Unrestricted TRI Boeing 737
Frequent question is - What is the difference between FSTD restricted TRI Boeing 737 and so-called unrestricted TRI. Answer is very simple. The main difference is that unrestricted TRI Boeing 737 can provide flight training directly in real Boeing 737 aeroplane. The flight training in this case means the real training towards the typerating or renewal of typerating. Since this is not applicable for Boeing 737, you will cover all of the trianing activities on Boeing 737 with your restricted TRI.
It is important to note that also restricted TRI B737 can also provide the training in aeroplane such as LIFUS and Base training.
GM1 FCL.910.TRI describes further the restricted TRI license endorsement:
- flight training restricted to FSTD: ‘TRI/r’ (r=restricted);
- flight training restricted to LIFUS: TRI/r LIFUS (LIFUS = Line Flying under Supervision)
- flight training restricted to base training: TRI/r LT (LT = landing training)
