Privileges of SFI Challenger 300 / 350
In accordance with FCL.905.SFI synthetic flight instructor - SFI for Challenger 300 / 350, can provide simulator training for issue or renewal of type rating for variants of Challenger CL30.
The equivalent of SFI CL30 is the instructor certificate TRI CL30 restricted to training in simulator - so-called TRI CL30 FSTD-restricted.
The privileges of a TRI CL30 include privileges to conduct Evidence Based Training practical assessment at an EBT operator, provided that the instructor complies with the requirements of Annex III (Part-ORO) to Regulation (EU) No 965/2012 for EBT instructor standardisation at that EBT operator.
SFI Training on Challenger 300 / 350

- FSTD part of the CL30 typerating training
- relevant parts of TRI training in simulator representing Challenger 300 / 350
- 3 hours of simulator training
Restricted SFI privileges
The privileges of SFI CL30 are restricted in accordance with FCL.910.SFI to the FTD 2/3 or FFS of the aircraft type in which the SFI training course was taken. The SFI privileges may be extended to other FSTDs representing further types of aeroplanes if the holders have:
- completed the simulator content of the relevant type rating course;
- completed the relevant parts of the technical training and the FSTD content of the flight instruction syllabus of the applicable TRI course;
- conducted on a complete type rating course at least 3 hours of flight instruction related to the duties of an SFI on the applicable type under the supervision and to the satisfaction of a TRE or an SFE qualified for this purpose.
The privileges of the SFI CL30 shall be extended to further variants in accordance with the OSD if the SFI has completed the type relevant parts of the technical training and the FSTD content of the flight instruction syllabus of the applicable TRI course.
Instructing for TRI or SFI Certitificate
An Instructor is authorized to instruct towards the TRI CL30 or SFI CL30 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 CL30 or a TRI CL30 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.
