TRI CL65 Restricted privileges

Most common is the restriction of TRI Bombardier CRJ privileges for flight training in simulator. In that case the privileges of TRI Bombardier CL65 are the same like the privileges of Bombardier CL65. In case of following exercises have been a part of the training in FSTD, the TRI CL65 can provide following trainings in real aircraft:

  • Line training under supervision (LIFUS)
  • base training

Since the flight training is not applicable in real Bombardier CL65 aeroplane, the restricted TRI CL65 privileges will cover all the training requirements. If the CL65 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 CL65 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).

For example a TRI restricted with LIFUS and landing training privileges will have on their license the following endorsement: ‘TRI/r LIFUS LT’.
