1. PURPOSE AND APPLICABILITY

 

1.1  Primary Purpose. This report specifies master training, checking, and currency requirements applicable to flight crews operating Cessna Model 525, 525A, 525B, and 525C aircraft under Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 91, subpart K of part 91, part 135 and part 142 Training Centers. This report can assist operators in the development and approval of training programs by their Principal Operations Inspectors (POI) and FAA Training Center Program Managers (TCPM).

 

Note: All regulatory references within this report are found in 14 CFR, unless otherwise indicated.

 

The guidelines in this report apply to: operations inspectors, principal operations inspectors (POIs), training center program managers (TCPMs), and aircrew program managers (APMs). This Report also applies to part 91K and part 135 Air Carrier check airmen and instructors, airline transport pilots instructing in air transportation service, Certificated Flight and Ground Instructors (CFI), Aircrew Program Designees (APD), Training Center Evaluators (TCEs), and parts 61, 135, 141 and 142 training providers.

 

Provisions of this report:

 

a)      Identify Pilot “type rating” requirements assigned to the CE-525 (Second In Command Required), and CE‑525S pilot type rating for the Cessna 525, 525A, 525B, and 525C,

 

b)     Describe any unique requirement applicable to initial, transition, upgrade, or recurrent training,

 

c)     Describe “Master Difference Requirements (MDR)” for flight crews requiring differences qualification for mixed-fleet-flying or transition,

 

d)     Provide examples of acceptable “Operator Difference Requirements (ODR)” tables,

 

e)     Describe acceptable training program and training device characteristics when necessary to establish compliance with applicable MDR table,

 

f)       Identify checking and currency standards to be applied by FAA or operators,

 

g)      Report Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) results, and

 

h)     Provide a listing of regulatory compliance status (compliance checklist) for the pertinent 14 CFR, Advisory Circulars (AC), and other operationally related criteria that was reviewed and evaluated by the Aircraft Evaluation Group (AEG) for 525C.


1.2 This report addresses CE-525 series aircraft as specified in the FAA Type Certificate Data Sheet (TCDS) #A1WI. This report is applicable to all training and checking in the aircraft as well as currency and experience requirements.

 

1.3 The provisions of this Flight Standardization Board (FSB) report are effective until amended, superseded, or withdrawn by subsequent revisions to this report.

 

1.4 Determinations made in this report are based on the evaluations of specific CE-525 aircraft equipped in a given configuration and in accordance with current regulations and guidance. Modifications and upgrades made to the models described herein, or introduction of new variant aircraft, may require amendment of the findings in this report. The FSB reserves responsibility/authority to re-evaluate and modify sections of this report based on new or revised Advisory Circular material or revisions to parts 91, 91K, and 135, aircraft operating experience, or the testing of new or modified aircraft under the provisions of AC 120-53, Guidance for Conducting and Use of Flight Standardization Board Evaluations, as amended.

 

1.5 Relationship between this FSB report and an AQP program. Differences between this FSB report and an operator’s proposed training, checking, and currency requirements under an Advanced Qualification Program (AQP), must be justified and documented as part of the applicant's AQP approval process. Program approvals under AQP need to ensure the basic provisions and requirements of this report have been addressed and, where necessary, coordination with the appropriate Flight Standardization Board has been completed.

 

1.6 Terminology. The term “must” is used in this FSB report and certain MDR footnotes, if used, even though it is recognized that this report (as well as AC 120-53, on which it’s based) provides one acceptable means, but not necessarily the only means of compliance with part 91K or part 135. The term “must” acknowledges the need for operators to fully comply with this FSB report and MDR and ODR provisions of AC 120-53 are to be used by the operator as the means of complying with part 91K and part 135.

 

1.7 This report includes:

 

a)   Minimum training, checking, and currency requirements for operator programs for approval by FAA field offices, (e.g. MDRs, Type Rating designations, etc.),

 

b)   General advisory information which may be approved for that operator (e.g. MDR footnotes, acceptable ODR tables),

 

c)   Information which is used to facilitate FAA review of an aircraft type or variant aircraft that is proposed for use by an operator (e.g. compliance checklist), and

 

d)   Requirement for Inspectors and Designees/Check Airmen to receive initial and recurrent training on both CE-525 equipped with Pro Line 21 and G3000 flight suite.


Various sections of this report are qualified as to whether compliance (considering the provisions of AC 120-53) is required or is advisory in nature.

 

1.8 This report also provides:

Information which is advisory in nature, but may be mandatory (under 14 CFR part 91K Management Specifications or part 135 operations specifications for particular operators) if the designated configurations apply and if approved for that operator.

2. PILOT “TYPE RATING” REQUIREMENTS

 

2.1 Pilot-In Command Type Rating. In accordance with the provisions of parts 1, 61, 91, 91K and 135, the pilot type rating for Cessna Models 525, 525A, 525B, 525C, Cessna 525 aircraft equipped with G1000 (STC SA01594WI-D) or G3000 flight suite and CE‑525B equipped with G3000 flight suite, are designated as CE‑525S and CE‑525.

 

2.2 An applicant who satisfactorily accomplishes the practical test in a Cessna 525 as a single pilot will receive a CE‑525S pilot type rating. An applicant who satisfactorily accomplishes the practical test in a Cessna 525 where an SIC crewmember was used will receive a CE-525 pilot type rating with a limitation of Second-in-Command Required.

 

2.2 Second-In-Command (SIC) Type Rating. In accordance with the provisions of § 61.55, FAA Order 8900.1 Volume 5 Chapter 2, Section 5, Paragraph 5-325, a SIC Privileges Only type rating can be issued as “CE-525” with Limitation for “CE-525 SIC Privileges Only”.

 

3. “MASTER DIFFERENCE REQUIREMENTS” (MDR)

 

3.1    Common Requirements (All CE-525).

 

3.1.1 Landing Minima Categories § 97.3. The CE-525 is considered Category “B” aircraft for the purposes of determining normal “straight-in” landing weather minima and Category “B” for normal circling approaches unless otherwise required by procedure, 14 CFR Regulations or Operations Specifications.

 

3.1.2 Normal “Final Landing Flap Setting”. The normal “final landing flap setting” per § 91.126(c) is considered to be “Flaps 35/Land” for all CE-525 aircraft.

 

3.2    Master Difference Requirements.

 

3.2.1 Requirements for particular CE-525 Related Aircraft Combinations. Master Difference Requirements (MDRs) for variant aircraft of the CE-525 are shown in Appendix 1. These provisions apply when differences between related aircraft exist which affect flight crew knowledge, skills, or abilities related to flight safety (e.g., Level A or greater differences as defined in AC 120-53, as amended).

 

3.2.2 MDR Footnotes. Footnotes to MDR requirements define acceptable “required means” or “alternate means” of compliance. A footnote can indicate requirements that are less restrictive than the basic designation, or more restrictive than the basic designation, depending on the significance of the differences between related aircraft.

 

4. “OPERATOR DIFFERENCE REQUIREMENTS” (ODR) TABLES

 

4.1 ODR Tables. ODR tables are developed by each individual part 91K and part 135 operator when differences exist which affect crew qualification. ODR tables are used to show an operator compliance methods. Detailed generic sample ODR tables are on file with the Kansas City AEG. Copies are available on request. These ODR tables are provided as generic tables, and therefore may not include items that are applicable to particular operators.

 

4.2 Operator Preparation of ODR Tables. Operators flying a “mixed fleet” of CE-525 aircraft equipped with Pro Line 21 and G3000 flight suite aircraft must have approved ODR tables pertinent to their fleet. The POI should coordinate this action with the FSB Chair, AFS-200 and AFS-800 (as appropriate).

 

4.3 ODR Table Coordination. Unless identical or equivalent ODR tables have been previously approved by the FAA, new ODR tables proposed by operators should be coordinated with the FSB prior to FAA approval and implementation. FSB coordination ensures consistent treatment of variant CE-525 aircraft between various operators, and compatibility of each ODR table with MDR provisions.

 

4.4 ODR Table Distribution. Original FAA approved ODR tables are to be retained by the operator. Copies of FAA approved ODR tables are to be retained by the Certificate Holding District Office (CHDO) and should be provided to the CE-525 FSB Chair at the Kansas City Aircraft Evaluation Group (AEG).

 

5. FSB SPECIFICATIONS FOR TRAINING

 

5.1 General

 

5.1.1 Assumptions Regarding Airmen’s Previous Experience. The provisions of this Section apply to programs for airmen who have experience in part 91K or part 135 operations, former military, commuter or corporate pilots and multi-engine transport turbojet aircraft, including glass cockpit and FMS experience. For airmen not having this experience, additional requirements may be appropriate as determined by the POI, TCPM, FSB, and/or AFS‑200/800.

 

5.1.2 Training for Seat Dependent Tasks. Accomplishment of certain tasks, procedures, or maneuvers requires training of a crewmember for a particular crew position (e.g. captain, first officer, international relief officer, check airman, etc.). Training programs should recognize and address the necessary seat/position related tasks for the applicable crewmember. Accordingly, training programs should address seat dependent tasks or maneuvers to the extent necessary to satisfy crew qualification objectives and should be in accordance with ODR tables when applicable.

 

5.1.3 Second-In-Command Training. Flight Crews qualify to serve as SIC must accomplish certain tasks, procedures or maneuvers for the SIC crew position. Training programs should address all training elements of § 61.55. SIC Pilot Type Rating may be issued in accordance with § 61.55, provided training tasks stipulated by this report, are also completed.

 

5.1.4 Future Air Navigation Systems (FANS)/RNP/ANP/CNS/CPDLC/ADS. Flight Crews operating aircraft equipped with FANS software should receive appropriate instruction in its general operational functions, appropriate uses for areas of operation, routes, or procedures to be flown. General training should address communications, navigation, and surveillance (CNS) functions covered by FANS, RNP, and ANP. In addition, sufficient training in use of data link communication and Automatic Dependent Surveillance (ADS) to ensure adequate knowledge, skill, and proficiency for flight crews to operate the above system(s) in typical daily operations (requiring their use) should be provided.

 

5.2 Pilots Initial, Transition and Upgrade Training

 

5.2.1 Pilots Initial, Transition and Upgrade Ground Training. Initial, transition, or upgrade ground training for the CE‑525 is accomplished as specified by §§ 61.155, 91.1101 and 135.345.

 

5.2.2 Pilots Initial, Transition and Upgrade Flight Training. Initial, transition, or upgrade flight training for the CE-525 is accomplished as specified by §§ 61.157, 91.1103 and 135.347.

 

5.2.3 Crewmember Emergency Training. Crewmember emergency training should be conducted for the CE-525 in accordance with part 61, part 91K and part 135. The objective of emergency training for the CE-525 aircraft is to provide crewmembers with the necessary knowledge concerning emergency equipment, situations, and procedures, to ensure implementation of the correct actions in the event of an emergency.

 

Emergency training consists of instruction on the location, function, and operation of emergency equipment that is different in each variant aircraft of the CE-525 and from other aircraft in the operator's fleet. Where emergency equipment is common, instruction may be adjusted for crewmembers qualified and current on this equipment, provided records are available which demonstrate that crewmembers meet §§ 91.1083 or 135.331 requirements. For example, if the fire extinguishers are common to fire extinguishers on other aircraft in the operator's fleet, training may be simultaneously credited for both aircraft. Conversely, for equipment that is unique to the CE-525, training on the emergency equipment for each related aircraft is required.

Emergency training also consists of instruction in crewmember emergency assignments and procedures including crew coordination and communication, the handling of emergency or other unusual situations, and emergency performance and observation drills that are specific to each variant aircraft of the CE-525.

 

In accordance with §§ 91.1083, 135.331 and FAA Order 8900.1, Volume 3, Chapter 19, Section 4, emergency training requirements refer to two types of training: “general” emergency training and “aircraft-specific” emergency training. General emergency training is instruction on those emergency items that are common to all CE-525 aircraft in the operator's fleet, e.g., instruction on fire extinguishers and firefighting procedures, if common to all aircraft. Aircraft-specific emergency training is training on those items that are specific to the CE-525 aircraft.

 

As part of an approved training program, an operator may use many methods when conducting aircraft-specific emergency training, including classroom instruction, pictures, videotape, and ground training devices, computer-based instruction, and static aircraft training.

 

There are no specified training program hours for Crewmember Emergency Training. A chart addressed in FAA Order 8900.1 Volume 3, Chapter 19, Section 4, Table 3-47 provides “National Norms” for the approval of the general emergency training program hours. The complexity of the different related aircraft of the CE-525 and the complexity of the type of operation to be conducted should be considered when approving the CE-525 aircraft-specific emergency training.

 

5.2.4 Areas of Emphasis. The following areas of emphasis should be addressed during ground and flight training:

 

Ground training in the following subjects for the CE-525 is required:

 

a)          Crew Resource Management,

b)          Cockpit Familiarization,

c)          Aircraft General Description (Interior/Exterior),

d)          Review of the AFM and Operating Manuals to include Normal & Abnormal Procedures and Limitations,

e)          Lighting Systems,

z)             Aircraft Performance Procedures and Limitations,

aa)         Automatic Flight Control System,

bb)        High Altitude Operations, and

cc)         Electronic Flight Bag (EFB).

 

Particular emphasis should be placed upon takeoff and landing performance. The definitions of and the significance of: V1, VR, V2, and Vref, should be thoroughly explained. The determination of maximum takeoff and landing weight due to climb capability, obstacle clearance requirements, and brake energy limits should be thoroughly understood by the student.

 

Flight training for the CE-525: Flight Training should focus on the following events or maneuvers:

 

a)          Exterior inspection,

b)         Cockpit/Cabin Familiarization,

c)          Systems Tests and Checks,

d)          Multiple approaches requiring reprogramming of approaches into the avionics system,

e)          Stalls to first indication of stall warning,

f)            No Flap Landing Procedures,

g)           Normal Procedures,

h)           Abnormal Procedures,

k)          VMC and IMC approaches (with and without Synthetic Vision, if applicable), and

l)             Engine failure, after V1 and/or missed approach.

 

5.2.5 Training for Seat Dependent Tasks. Accomplishment of certain tasks, procedures, or maneuvers require training of a crewmember for a particular crew position (i.e. captain, first officer, check airman, etc.). Training programs should recognize and address the necessary seat/position related tasks for the applicable crewmember. Accordingly, training programs should address seat dependent tasks or maneuvers to the extent necessary to satisfy crew qualification objectives, and IAW ODR tables when applicable.

 

5.2.6 Second-In-Command Crew Training. SIC crew training is accomplished as specified in § 61.55. Training programs should address tasks stipulated in FSB Specifications for Training; Areas of Emphasis, Training for Seat Dependent Tasks and SIC Crew Training are accomplished.

 

5.3 Differences Training. Differences Training from CE-525 aircraft equipped with Pro Line 21 and G3000 flight suite variant: refer to Appendix 5.

 

5.3.1 General. Unless an initial or transition program is completed for each related aircraft, differences training is necessary for each related aircraft or type, as provided in MDR and ODR tables (reference §§ 91.1103 or 135.347). Detailed generic sample ODR tables may be obtained through the Kansas City AEG. Copies are available on request. MDR and ODR tables provide guidelines for differences training requirements applicable to particular aircraft equipage.

 

a)   A Differences Training Program prerequisite is that a trainee has completed initial, upgrade, or transition training in one related aircraft and will receive differences training for the other related aircraft.

b)   When a Differences Training Program involves related aircraft having the same Pilot Type Rating, coverage of differences may be completed either coincident with each phase of an initial, upgrade, or transition training course, or following completion of that training course. The differences training must be consistent with the provisions of the approved applicable MDR/ODR Tables.

 

5.3.2 Differences Ground Training. Differences ground training is required on the topics applicable to the pertinent variant aircraft and is shown by applicable ODR tables.

11. ALTERNATE MEANS OF COMPLIANCE

 

11.1 Approval Level and Approval Criteria. Alternate means of compliance to the requirements of this report must be approved by the Kansas City AEG, FSB Chair. If alternate means of compliance is sought, operators must show that the proposed alternate means provides an equivalent level of safety to the provisions of AC 120-53 (as amended) and this FSB report. Analysis, demonstrations, proof of concept testing, differences documentation, or other evidence may be required.

 

11.2 Equivalent Safety. In the event alternate means of compliance is sought, training program hour reductions, simulator approvals, and device approvals, may be significantly limited and reporting requirements may be increased to assure equivalent safety. FAA will generally not consider relief through alternate means of compliance unless sufficient lead time has been planned by an operator to allow for any necessary testing and evaluation.

 

11.3 Interim Programs. In the event unforeseen circumstances make it impossible for an operator to comply with MDR provisions, the operator may seek interim program approval rather than a permanent, alternate compliance method. Financial arrangements, scheduling adjustments, and similar reasons are not considered to be “unforeseen circumstances” for the purposes of this provision. Interim program approvals must be approved by the FSB Chair.

 

12. MISCELLANEOUS

 

12.1 FSB Board Record CE-525 (#0600-0684 and 0686-0701) to CE-525 (#0685, 0800 and On).

 

12.1.1 Background. Cessna made application for type rating determination for Model CE-525 M2 (#0685, 0800 and On) in December 2012, to include adding: Garmin G3000 Flight Suite, winglets, and minor interior modifications. This was to be a Joint FAA/EASA evaluation using JOEB OPS/FCL Common Procedures manual as guidance.

 

12.1.2 Board Composition. The FSB Board consisted of the Chair, an Aircraft Certification Office (ACO) Test Pilot, an EASA member, a NSP Inspector, and a National Resource Inspector (CE-525). All members current in base CJ1+ aircraft.

 

12.1.3 Applicant’s Proposal. The applicant submitted an application proposing MDR and ODR tables with training, checking and currency levels D/D/D.

 

12.1.4 Tests. As a result of the applicant’s proposal, the FSB conducted the T2 Test (Handling Qualities Comparison) combined with the T3 Test (System Differences Test and Validation of Training and Checking) in a conformed CE-525 (#0685, 0800 and On) M2 test aircraft at Wichita, Kansas during July 2013. The FSB noted no handling qualities differences from the base aircraft CE-525 (#0600-0684 and 0686-0701) CJ1+ and the CE-525 (#0685, 0800 and On) M2. T2 Testing (Handling Qualities Comparison) passed. The FSB determined that the differences training was not satisfactory and the T3 Test (System Differences Test and Validation of Training and Checking) was unsatisfactory.

 

Cessna provided a second T3, CE-525 (#0600-0684 and 0686-0701) CJ1+ to CE-525 (#0685, 0800 and On) M2 with two new ASI’s in November 2013. Requested levels for training, checking and currency were C/C/C. T3 was satisfactory with the recommendation to increase “hands on” time with the touch screen controllers. The training and evaluation was conducted in a Level C simulator with the motion and visual turned on. Cessna did not demonstrate to the FSB, training, checking, and currency at MDR table level C/C/C. It was the FSB determination that the MDR table would reflect D/D/D.

 

Cessna requested and was granted an amendment to type rating application to evaluate CE-525 (#0685, 0800 and On) M2 to CE-525 (#0600-0684 and 0686-0701) CJ1+, which was also conducted in November 2013. Two additional ASI’s not rated in the CE-525, were trained in the CE-525 M2, then they evaluated differences between M2 and CJ1+. The FSB determined the T3 Test, CE-525 (#0685, 0800 and On) M2 to CE-525 (#0600-0684 and 0686‑0701) CJ1+ was considered unsatisfactory.

 

A coordinated finding between the FAA and EASA concerning the CE-525 is that the CE-525 M2 is a CE-525 type rating. The MDR table reflects training, checking, and currency of D/D/D.
ODR tables reflect training, checking, and currency at level D/D/D.

 

12.1.5 CE-525B FSB (#0001 thru 0056 and 0058 thru 0450) CJ3 to (#0057, 0451 and On) CJ3+: 8/18 thru 8/22/2014.

 

As a result of the applicant’s proposal, the FSB conducted the T2 Test (Handling Qualities Comparison) combined with the T3 Test (System Differences Test and Validation of Training and Checking) in a conformed CE-525B.

 

FSB Board consisted of the Chair, an Aircraft Certification Office (ACO) Test Pilot, a NSP Inspector, and a National Resource Inspector (CE-525).

 

The FSB noted no handling qualities differences from the base aircraft CE-525B (#0001 thru 0056 and 0058 thru 0450) CJ3 and CE-525B (#0057, 0451 and On) CJ3+.

 

T2 Testing (Handling Qualities Comparison) passed. The FSB determined that the differences training was satisfactory and the T3 Test (System Differences Test and Validation of Training and Checking) was satisfactory. The MDR table reflects training, checking, and currency requirement levels. ODR tables reflect training, checking, and currency levels.

 

Flight Standardization Board finding concerning the CE-525B is that the CE-525B (#0057, 0451 and On) (CJ3+) is a CE-525 type rating.

 

Flight Standardization Board reviewed differences training, CE-525B (#0057, 0451 and On) CJ3+ to CE-525B (#0001 thru 0056 and 0058 thru 0450) CJ3. Additional review was given to CE-525 aircraft with Pro Line 21 to Garmin 3000, CE-525 aircraft with Garmin 3000 to Pro Line 21, and CE-525 aircraft Garmin 3000 to Garmin 3000. The results are reflected in the MDR Table in this report.

1. Purpose and Applicability

 

The following is provided for the benefit of FAA Principal Inspectors and aircraft operators for their use in determining the acceptance of EFB applications. As described in AC 120-76C, Guidelines for the Certification, Airworthiness, and Operational Approval of Electronic Flight Bags, the Collins IFIS is certified Class 3 EFB Hardware and Type C applications. Class 3 hardware is installed equipment and requires AIR involvement and AEG involvement. Applications are classified as Type C due to interaction of the Electronic Charts with the aircraft. The charts can be manipulated (i.e. zoomed, scrolled, etc.) as Type B, but are classified Type C because aircraft present position is provided on the installed display on the airport depictions and charts.

 

2. Suitability Determination

 

The EFB evaluation determined chart display functions to be suitable as one source for electronic display of airport diagrams, approach plates, arrival procedures, and departure procedures. Since chart information cannot be displayed while on emergency power, or in the event of certain avionics failures, a suitable backup is required. Required individual airplane flight manual supplements provide operating limitations for the specific IFIS 5000 installation.

 

3. Description

A specific system description for the system configuration appropriate to the installation is available in the approved airplane flight manual supplement, and additional system information can be obtained from the applicable Rockwell Collins IFIS 5000 Operators Guide.

 

4. Mounting

 

EFB applications are displayed on either Multi-function Display and have been certified as part of the type design.

 

5. Display and Reflectivity

 

The EFB has been evaluated in both low light and sunlight, as part of the type design.

 

6. Database Revisions

 

The database currency requirements are specified in the approved airplane flight manual supplement, and additional information regarding database revisions can be obtained from the applicable Rockwell Collins IFIS 5000 Operators Guide.

 

7. FSB Specifications for Training

 

As a minimum the crew should use the FMS to flight plan and the EFB electronic chart functions to pull up the airport depiction charts, SID’s, Arrival Procedures, and approach charts. Pilots should master the graphic weather depiction functions to obtain METARS and TAF’s for origin, destination, and alternate airports

 

8. FSB Specification for Checking

 

Recommended tasks include demonstrating competency in using the FMS to integrate use of the electronic chart functions to display departures, arrivals, and approaches, and utilizing the graphical weather text functions.

 

9. FSB Specification for Currency

 

Currency level is variable as set in MDR table. If level C currency is indicated by MDR table, recommended tasks include demonstrating competency in using the FMS to integrate use of the electronic chart functions to display departures, arrivals, and approaches, and utilizing the graphical weather text functions.

 

10. Environmental Testing (HIRF, EMI)

 

Intensity Radiated Fields and Indirect Effects of Lightning for the IFIS-5000 system were tested per High Intensity Radiated Fields (HIRF) and Indirect Effects of Lightning Test Procedure. The system meets Certification Basis requirements and special conditions for High Intensity Radiated Fields and Indirect Effects of Lightning.

 

11. Continued Airworthiness

 

Instructions for Continued Airworthiness for the IFIS-5000 system are addressed in accordance with aircraft certification requirements and available through normal ICA distribution processes.

Demonstration of Proficiency

 

Completion Standards

 

The pilot must be able to describe, locate, and identify aircraft systems; perform normal, abnormal, and emergency checklists; and demonstrate proficiency with the Garmin G3000 Avionics Flight Suite.

 

The Demonstration of Proficiency is a partial proficiency check administered in a Line Oriented Evaluation (LOE) profile of approximately 1:30. The tasks listed below will be evaluated during the LOE. A sample LOE would include: Preflight and Before Takeoff checks, Departure, Climb to a cruise altitude, Descent, Arrival, Instrument approach and missed approach, Load and fly a different instrument approach, After Landing and Shutdown checks. The evaluator would provide normal ATC instructions, weather, weight and balance data, etc. The crew is expected to perform the tasks without assistance from the evaluator. Normally, the evaluator is not the instructor that trained the Flight Crewmembers.

 

The Demonstration of Proficiency minimum tasks include:

Avionics Initialization
