In case of following exercises have been a part of the training in FSTD, the TRI Boeing 737 can provide following trainings in real aircraft:
- Line training under supervision (LIFUS)
- base training
Since the flight training is not applicable in real Boeing 737 aeroplane, the restricted TRI B737 privileges will cover all the training requirements. If the B737 TRI training is carried out in FSTDs only, the privileges of TRIs shall be restricted to training in FSTDs. This restriction shall however include the following privileges for conducting, in the B737 aircraft:
- LIFUS, provided that the TRI training course has included the training specified in point FCL.930.TRI(a)(4)(i);
- landing training, provided that the TRI training course has included the training specified in point FCL.930.TRI(a)(4)(ii); or
- the training flight specified in point FCL.060(c)(2), provided that the TRI training course has included the training referred to in points (a)(1) or (a)(2).
The restriction to FSTD shall be removed if TRIs have completed an assessment of competence in the aircraft.
In accordance with GM1 FCL.910.TRI the restrictions of the TRI privileges are annotated on the license under ‘Remarks and Restrictions’ against the appropriate TRI certificate, along with the following endorsements:
- if the training is carried out in an FSTD: ‘TRI/r’ (r=restricted);
- if the TRI training, as specified in point FCL.910.TRI(a)(1), includes the LIFUS training: endorsement as per point (a) and ‘LIFUS’; and
- if the landing training, as specified in point FCL.910.TRI(a)(2), is included in the TRI training course: endorsement as per point (a) and ‘LT’ (LT = landing training).
