This service fits your needs if you are alrady a holder of TRI instructor for any other type of an aeroplane and you want to become TRI on Cessna 525.

I am already TRI but not on Cessna 525 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

If you are already a holder of a Type Rating Instructor certificate for any other aeroplane type, you can become the TRI C525 by extending your TRI privileges to C525. The procedure is so-called TRI type-extension in accordance with FCL.910.TRI(b)(2).

Flight school will consider your previous instructional experience and based on the assessment they will setup relevant TRI training. This is so-called competency-based training  In accordance with FCL.910.TRI(a)(2) the applicant for TRI type extension is required to attend so-called relevant TRI training. GM1 FCL.910.TRI(a)(2) describes the Relevant parts of the TRI technical training and the flight instruction parts of the applicable TRI training course’ means that the training should be relevant to its purpose, taking into consideration the experience of the individual TRI on other aircraft types that are similar to the Cessna 525.

SFI to become TRI Cessna 525

Should you are a holder od SFI Cessna 525 willing to become a TRI Cessna 525 - you will obtain the TRI administratively once you meet the pre-requisites (15 route segments in 12 months). In such case if you as a SFI C525 apply to your issuing authority - you will be issued TRI on Cessna 525 with restriction to provide the flight training towards C525 in simulator only. That is so-called FSTD restricted TRI. In order to extend the privileges of TRI to LIFUS or Base training, you will be required to attend additional training.

This is granted by FCL.930.TRI(c). An applicant for a TRI certificate who holds an SFI certificate for the Cessna 525 shall be fully credited towards the requirements of this paragraph for the issue of a TRI certificate restricted to flight instruction in simulators.

TRI Cessna 525 for multi-pilot operations

The privileges of TRI Cessna 525 can be extended also to act as a Type Rating Instructor in multi-pilot operations. Applicant has to be a holder of Cessna 525 typerating for multi-pilot operations and in addition iaw FCL.905.TRI he has to meet following requirements:

  • FCL.905.TRI(c)(1)(i) - holds or has held a type rating instructor - TRI certificate for multi-pilot operations - e.g. TRI Boeing 737, or TRI Bombardier CL65, or
  • FCL.905.TRI(c)(1)(ii) has at least 500 hours on aeroplanes in multi-pilot operations and completed an MCCI training course in accordance with point FCL.930.MCCI.

TRI Extension - training for TRI or SFI

An Instructor is authorized to instruct towards the TRI C525 or SFI C525 certificates provided he meets the requirements of FCL.905.TRI(b). Instructor has to have at least 50 hours of instructional experience as a TRI or SFI in accordance with this Part-FCL or Ec 965/2012. In addition he has conducted the flight instruction syllabus of the relevant part of the TRI training course according to point FCL.930.TRI(a)(3) to the satisfaction of the head of training of an ATO.

Training in an aeroplane is not a requirement for the issue of an SFI C525 or a TRI C525 certificate. In order to deliver effective UPRT, it is beneficial for the instructor to have first-hand experience of the critical psychological and physiological human factors, which might be present during recoveries from developed upsets. These human factors (effects of unusual acceleration, such as variations from normal 1G flight, the difficulty to perform counter-intuitive actions, and the management of the associated stress response) can only be experienced during training in an aeroplane because FFSs are not capable of reproducing sustained accelerations. Completion of the advanced UPRT course in accordance with FCL.745.A would provide such experience and is therefore useful for instructors providing instruction for the issue of a TRI or an SFI certificate.

Restricted TRI and Unrestricted TRI

Frequent question is - What is the difference between FSTD restricted TRI Cessna 525 and so-called unrestricted TRI Cessna 525. Answer is very simple. The main difference is that unrestricted TRI Cessna 525 can provide flight training directly in real Cessna 525 aeroplane. It is important to note that also restricted TRI C525 can also provide the training in aeroplane. The training in aeroplane is however restricted to the particular trainings such as Line Training Under Supervision - so-called 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)
