Summary

The course is based on module 033 - Flight planning and monitoring. The content is focused on the knowledge of flight planning of commercial aircraft according to the rules of flight according to IFR instruments. Comprehensive knowledge of all factors influencing the planning of traffic IFR flight is a condition for safe flight. The student will acquire competencies in the field of IFR traffic flight planning, advanced navigation preparation procedures and associated calculations, as well as in the field of special types of operation to the extent that allows him to pass ATPL exams at the Prague Civil Aviation Authority.
