With some events happening in my personal life, I’ve made the tough decision to stop flying in order to save money (mainly for my wedding).
That said, I’ve canceled all my lessons for the rest of the summer. However, that’s not to say I can’t still be productive.
I’m debating about whether I should let my rental currency lapse with the school.
I plan on spending my time studying for the CPL written exam as well as for the INRAT. The results of the exams are valid for 2 years after you write them. So although I don’t plan on starting my IFR training until after I get my CPL, I’ll already have the INRAT written and done.
The INRAT consists of 50 multiple choice questions, with a three hour time limit and a pass of 70% or higher.
The questions all deal with items related to IFR flying as well as questions based on a simulated IFR flight.
Transport Canada has a list of recommended study material. I find it odd that the “Instrument Procedure Manual” is missing from that list. It’s a tough document to track down. It is not available online, nor is it available on the Transport Canada website for order. I’ve only been able to find it at Aviation World. It comes unbound and shrink wrapped. At least it’s hole punched so you can put it in a binder.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what other resources I should use for studying the INRAT?
