PANS-OPS Basic Classroom and Live Stream
This is the initial training required for future Flight Procedure Designers and Regulators. It is a four-month study program with video lectures in the first phase, a 1-day initiation webinar and then 2 parts of 3 weeks face-to-face tuition. In the break between the two parts there is also a video lecture phase with associated tests. Before the start of the course the course participants must read the book "Instrument Flight Procedures" from Jens Gjerlev. The book can be ordered below.
Note: Before you can register for this course, proceed to the ANI Online Faculty Test Center and take the English Language Test (except native English speakers), where a score of 61/100 is required (C1 advanced) and the pre-requisite test for the Basic Course.
PANS-OPS Basic Online (self-paced learning)
This is the Basic self-learning Course. Note that this is not for everybody. The platform provides self-learning keynotes and filmed content from classes. Contains more lectures and topics than the Classroom course. Before the course participants must read the book "Instrument Flight Procedures" from Jens Gjerlev. The book can be ordered below.
PANS-OPS Advanced PBN Classroom and Live Stream
This is the advanced level material for Flight Procedure Design: Baro-VNAV, SBAS, A-RNP Departures, RNP AR. Only available for trained Flight Procedure Designers. Duration 2 weeks.
PANS-OPS Advanced PBN online (self-paced learning)
Self-learning of advanced level material for Flight Procedure Design: Baro-VNAV, SBAS, A-RNP Departures, RNP AR. Only available for trained Flight Procedure Designers. Note: this is not a learning method that everybody can cope with.
PANS-OPS Helicopter Point-in-Space Procedures Classroom
Flight Procedure Design Criteria for Helicopter Point-in-Space procedures. Only available for trained Flight Procedure Designers. Duration 5 days. This course is not available for self-paced learning.
PANS-OPS APV Baro-VNAV Live Webinar
The Baro-VNAV criteria in 2 days in a live stream tuition. Only for trained Flight Procedure Designers.
PANS-OPS SBAS Procedures Live Webinar
The SBAS Procedure Design criteria in 2 days in a live stream tuition. Only for trained Flight Procedure Designers.
RNP AR Procedures Live Webinar
The RNP AR Procedure Design criteria in 2 days in a live stream tuition. Only for trained Flight Procedure Designers. Note: Only available once the doc. 9906 third edition is published by ICAO.
PANS-OPS recurrent/refresher Classroom and Live Stream
Required at regular intervals. Always encompasses the last three amendments including information about upcoming ones. Duration 5 working days.
Collision Risk Model Master Class
CRM Theory, Obstacle modelling, sorting, interpreting of results. 5 working days of insights you were never aware of. Only available for trained Flight Procedure Designers
Flight Procedure Design for Managers
This is not a course where you learn criteria. Managers need to understand the Quality Assurance Process, what setup can make their teams more efficient, which are critical interfaces between different stakeholders in the process. Duration 5 working days.
Regulating Product or Process? The importance of a comprehensible written Regulatory Framework for Flight Procedure Design. Duration 5 working days.
IFP QA process and Oversight Live Webinar
This is a one-day Webinar explaining the QA Process and oversight of it. Conceptual Design, IFP Documentation, Independent Review Documentation, Checklists.
Very important course for all Flight Procedure Designers. Explains the Path/Terminator Concept in detail, provides some hands-on coding exercises and will illustrate short-comings of certain products from avionics manufacturers.
Understanding the Cockpit Side
Attending this course can catapult Flight Procedure Designers to unknown "flight levels"! This is where Procedure Designers learn how all their work gets implemented and used in the cockpit of a modern airliner. How is a procedure loaded from the datebase and how is it actually flown. Includes hands-on flying in an Airbus simulator. Duration 5 working days.
Annex 4 and Annex 15 requirements for AIP and correct production of Aeronautical Charts. Duration 10 working days.
Flight Validation Pilot
This is the required training to get State Approval as a Flight Validation Pilot. The 4 modules IFP Process and Design, ARINC 424, Geodesy and Practical total to a 4-week course, of which individual modules can also be completed in different years.
FVP Tuition Fees:
- IFP Module CHF 4000
- ARINC 424 Module CHF 1500
- Geodesy Module CHF 1100
- Practical Module Fixed Wing CHF 4200
- Practical Module Helicopter CHF 4500 (availability depending on attendance)
- All modules fixed wing: CHF 10800
- All modules Helicopter: CHF 11100
Flight Validation Pilot Advanced
This is to consolidate FVP competencies. Perticipants get an IFP Report beforehand and must prepare the Validation. Then over 3 days the Validation is performed in the Simulator and a Validation Documentation is created.
Flight Validation Pilot Recurrent
This is required at regular intervals. The ANI recurrent event is a two-day all-in event with two lunches and one dinner together to provide more non-formal time to exchange experience and ideas between participants. Tuition fee includes 2 lunches and one dinner. Can also be booked as Live Stream.
