DCP Qualifications DCP Terms of Reference

13 ICAO SARPs Annex 6, 9.4.4 - Pilot Proficiency Checks
An operator shall ensure that piloting technique and the ability to execute emergency procedures is checked to demonstrate competency If under instrument flight rules the pilot’s competence to comply with such rules is demonstrated Either a check pilot of the operator or to a representative of the State of the Operator Performed twice within any period of one year..

14 ICAO Guidance DOC 8335 - Pilot Proficiency Checks
when properly controlled by the CAA, the designation of qualified operator personnel to assist in some inspection functions, such as periodic pilot proficiency checks, route checks, etc., can be acceptable it must be stressed that the designated operator personnel, when performing their duties, must be kept under the supervisory and technical control of the CAA.

15 ICAO Guidance DOC 8335 - Pilot Proficiency Checks
Proficiency checks are carried out in accordance with the standards and frequency prescribed in the regulations The CAA inspector should possess the appropriate licence and be currently qualified in the specific type of aircraft to be used for the check Alternatively, the CAA inspector may choose to observe or monitor such checks conducted by an appropriately designated check pilot

16 ICAO Guidance DOC 8335 - Pilot Proficiency Checks
The CAA inspector should observe or monitor a sufficient number of checks conducted by such personnel each year in order to ensure positive CAA quality control of check procedures The pilot proficiency check should be conducted in such a manner that the pilot demonstrates knowledge, skill and judgment relative to: the aircraft, its systems and components; pilot performance in accordance with the procedures and limitations contained in the manufacturer's AFM, AOM, Operations Manual, etc.

31 Professional Update FMS-FACF GPS-Operations -Approaches -Requirements
Approach Changes GPS-Operations -Requirements -Testing -Approaches -Differential GPS RNAV-Direct Routes -Certification

32 GPS Operations Short Term - Non-Precision approaches
- Domestic enroute/terminal - Oceanic Long Term - CAT I approaches - Possibly CAT II and III IFR Approval - US and Canada concurrently

33 GPS Requirements With RAIM: Without Raim: RAIM:
- use GPS for "overlay" and "standalone" - conventional navaids must work at alternate - MNPS requirements - 1 GPS and 1 other RNAV system - need a TSO C129 receiver - no need to monitor navaids Without Raim: - must monitor navaids - not approved for IFR RAIM: - Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring

approach to use published name (NDB 24) approach must be in database no monitoring required (with RAIM) NAVAIDS and a/c receivers operating requested and approved as GPS approach (GPS 24) RAIM must be available ground-based navaids at destination can be inoperative but navaids at alternate operative GPS STANDALONE APPROACHES

35 Differential GPS Wide area Local Integrity and availibity Accuracy

36 Professional Update NAVIGATION WEATHER AIRSPACE RNAV Direct Routes
Designated Check Pilot Course NAVIGATION WEATHER AIRSPACE RNAV Direct Routes

37 RNAV Direct Routes Presently 3 types of route are available:
1) Random direct FL 390 and above 2) City pair T-routes FL 310 and above 3) *MMT routes FL FL 390 Random routes to be available in future * MMT-Minimum Time Track

38 RNAV Approaches Multi-Sensor RNAV RWY 08 YTZ
Certification of receivers a problem All approaches could be RNAV Type of sensor - determine limits All info must be in database * *and operator certified for use

39 FMS FACF Required by FMS databases On final about 8 NM from threshold
FINAL APPROACH COURSE FIX Required by FMS databases On final about 8 NM from threshold Prior to vnav/FAF ICAO 5-letter pronounceable name For all ILS and LOC approaches

40 FMS Approaches Database : Jeppesen Types of FMS Approaches: GPS RNAV

soon to be RNAV and then MDA will be based on the type of sensor POSITION REPORTS During approaches at controlled airports - Make requested reports only - Report position only - Expect report at FAF

42 Approach Changes Pass altitude on departure
- Initial call add passing altitude and give cleared altitude If pilot cannot make an altitude restriction: - Pilot actions: • ask for instructions • enter hold if no instructions - Controller actions: • protect holding airspace

43 Course Schedule 1/2 Introduction Forms and Administration
DCP Quals/Reqts/Terms Canadian Aviation Regs Instrument procedures

45 Instrument Procedures 1
Outline 1. Flight Planning 2. Departure 3. Enroute 4. Holding 5. Arrival 6. Approach 7. Missed Approach 8. Circling 9. Landing

46 Definitions Shall: Imperative, procedure is mandatory
Will: Mandatory, comprehensive, and dispositive in nature Must: Primarily mandatory, not the only meaning, used for both permissive and mandatory sense May: Speculation, uncertainty, permissive Should: Implying duty of obligation, also permissive Practical: Available or useful in practice - inclined or suited to action rather than speculation Practicable: Physically possible The above definitions are summarized/paraphrased from Black's Law Dictionnary except "Practical" which was copied from the Concise Oxford Dictionary.

47 New Altimeter Error Policy
"An aircraft altimeter which has the current altimeter setting applied to the subscale should not have an error of more than ±50ft when compared on the ground against a known aerodrome/runway elevation. If the error is more than ±50 ft the accuracy of the altimeter is questionable and the problem should be investigated." (CAP.GEN)

48 Fly Runway Heading When instructed to fly runway heading or
when flying a SID for which no specific heading is published, pilots are expected to: • Fly runway heading • Do not apply drift correction • FMS fly track

49 Standard Climb Gradient

50 Obstacle Clearance after T/O
VFR climb (Y/N) Departure procedure(Y/N) Missed approach procedure(Y/N) Sector altitudes(Y/N) Topo maps or local knowledge(Y/N) SID- pilot and nav

51 Holding Pattern

52 Max Holding Speeds Jet - 14K and below - 230 kt - above 14 K - 265kt
- in climb kt Prop kt Turbulence kt/ Mach .80

53 Instrument Procedures 2
Outline 1. Flight Planning 2. Departure 3. Enroute 4. Holding 5. Arrival 6. Approach 7. Missed Approach 8. Circling 9. Landing

54 Speed Limits 200kts below 3,000 ft within 10 NM of tower
250 kts below 10,000 ft (exemptions)

55 (Controlled Airspace)
* Minimum IFR Alttudes (Controlled Airspace) a) Minimum Enroute Altitude (MEA) b) Minimum Obstruction Clearance Altitude (MOCA) c) Geographic Area Safe Altitude (GASA) d) Minimum Sector Altitude (MSA) e) Safe altitude 100 NM f) Minimum vectoring altitude g) Transition altitude * ATC is not permitted to approve or assign any IFR altitude below the minimum IFR altitude

56 Altitude Correction Chart
A/D Height above the elevation of the altimeter Source Temp oC 0o -10o -20o -30o -40o -50o Note: Values should be added to published altitudes

57 Altimeter Settings Requirements
Before commencing an IFR approach, set current altimeter setting Altimeter setting can be local or remote Readings are considered current for up to 90 minutes If pressure falling rapidly, may add value to published DH/MDA Correction factor to be applied for remote altimeter source Temperature correction to be applied in all cases

58 Visual Approach VFR approach while on IFR flight plan Weather
- VFR (300m- 5km) ATC may give radar vectors to gain operational advantages Weather - ceiling 200m above min vector altitude - ground vis at least 5 km Condition: pilot shall be in visual contact with the airport and/or traffic Pilot is responsible for: - Wake turbulence separation - noise abatement - Obstacle clearance

59 Cleared for an Approach
Can fly any published inst. approach Can descend to minimum IFR altitudes Three route options: - cleared route - transition - direct Must advise ATC which route and approach

60 Straight-In Approach No PT published straight-ins
ATC radar-vectored straight-ins Can not do straight-in otherwise


62 Aircraft Approach Category
Category A B C D E Speeds UP to kt Above 90kt kt kt kt kt All rotocraft are Category A Use speed flown on approach to determine category Use Minima for category flown

63 Glidepath Fails During ILS
Advise ATC Determine new minima Change beacon X-ing alt Time and descent rate to MDA If in doubt, overshoot

64 Light Settings and RVR RVR readouts compensate for the setting
of the runway edge lights. At setting 5 the RVR will give the highest reading. This will affect the RVR readout even if the runway lights are off. ATC should advise pilots when the runway light intensity is at setting 4 or 5.

65 Missed Approach During Circling
Commence climb Advise ATC Turn toward airport (normally) Fly published procedure Use local knowledge and plate to make a safe procedure

66 Circling Approach Area Radii
Category A B C D E Radius (Miles) 1.3 1.5 1.7 2.3 4.5 • Keep runway in sight • Stay at MDA until normal landing assured

67 Landing Minima Landings are governed by published DH/MDAs.
Pilots of aircraft on instrument approaches are prohibited from continuing the descent below DH or MDA, unless the required visual reference is established and maintained in order to complete a safe landing.

68 Visual References a) The runway or runway markings;
At least one of the following: a) The runway or runway markings; b) The runway threshold or threshold markings; c) The touchdown zone or touchdown zone markings; d) The approach lights; e) The approach slope indicator system; f) The runway identification lights (rils); g) The threshold and runway end lights; h) The touchdown zone lights; i) The runway edge lights; or j) The runway centreline lights.
