Appendix 8-C - Flight Engineer/Second Officer Proficiency Check Credits - Aeroplanes

1. Discussion

This Appendix describes the checking credits that may be granted to an aeroplane simulator pursuant to the CARs.

ColumnI of the table outlines the flight phase or manoeuvre, and ColumnII outlines the minimum standard of simulator required to conduct the ColumnI activity. Checking credits granted to a simulator pursuant to the CARs may be more restrictive than the training credits granted the same device, depending on the configuration and performance of the device. Where neither a simulator nor the aircraft is designated, the flight phase or manoeuvre can be trained and checked in a flight training device. Since the level of training device is not always an adequate indicator of what performance is required for credit for each manoeuvre or flight phase, credit will be determined on a case by case basis. It can be assumed, however, that a Level6 or 7 training device can gain credit for all items not specifically annotated to a full flight simulator or the aircraft.

2. Flight Engineer/Second Officer Proficiency Check Credits - Aeroplanes

Note: A "x" in COLUMNII indicates the minimum standard simulator to conduct the COLUMNI activity. A "x" in the AEROPLANE column means that only the operator's aircraft can be used. Each specific Level6 or 7 FTD must be specifically approved for the individual carrier for these check credits.
