IR(A/H) modular theoretical knowledge training


The EASA IR(A/H) modular theoretical knowledge training is a distance learning course at which the student is prepared to participate at and to pass the official IR(A/H) theoretical knowledge exams. This course is open for both aeroplane and helicopter pilots.


A distance learning course means that the student studies most of the course material at home and takes part in a few days of (mandatory!) brush-up sessions. The study material is divided into 9 self-study weeks of 15 hours, each time concluded by a progress test. 


The total amount of hours for the IR(A/H) theoretical knowledge training is 161 hours, including progress tests and two brush-up days. The course is divided into two modules:


Module 1 comprises the subjects Air Law, Flight Planning and Monitoring, Instrumentation and Radio Navigation.


Module 2 contains Meteorology, Human Performance and Communications


The Area 100 Knowledge, Skills and Attitude is not required for the IR(A/H).


The course fee includes the weekly study guide and workbook, the follow-up by the ATO and the brush-up days. Other study material is available for purchase including a paper version of the study material and the General Student Pilot Route Manual.


Module 1 : 5 weeks, and 1 brush-up day

Module 2 : 4 weeks, and 1 brush-up day
