EASA Part FCL Theoretical Knowledge Amendments

EASA have published the amendments to the theoretical knowledge learning objectives.

However, I have noted an error (to my thinking at least and I stand to be corrected).

* Annex I to ED Decision 2016/008/R publishes "Acceptable Means of Compliance and Guidance Material to Part-FCL (PBN) and Part-ARA (PBN, ARA.MED)", in particular the new Learning Objectives 062.07.00.00 for Performance Based Navigation (PBN) training

* Annex II to ED Decision 2016/008/R publishes "Acceptable Means of Compliance and Guidance Material to Part-FCL (Learning Objectives (LOs)) Amendment 2"


The new LOs under Annex II above do NOT include any changes to 062 Radio Navigation regarding PBN.

The new LOs under Annex I apply ONLY to IR Theoretical Knowledge:

2.Point AMC7 FCL.615(b) is amended as follows:
AMC7 FCL.615(b) IR Theoretical knowledge and flight instruction
Delete 062 05 01, 062 05 02, 062 05 03, and insert 062 07 00 00 below when applicable:


Apart from the minor point that I believe it should read AMC1 not AMC7 (again, I stand to be corrected), from a technical point of view, Annex I only applies to FCL.615(b) and in that respect to the IR syllabus only, even though the table in Annex II identifies applicability of the LOs to ATPL(A), ATPL(H/IR) and IR.

I think it should have read "AMC1 FCL.310; FCL.515 (b); FCL.615 (b) Theoretical knowledge and flight instruction", unless of course it is only applicable to the IR syllabus, in which case why are the ATPL(A) and ATPL(H/IR) subjects checked in the Annex II table?

Assuming it is an administrative error and that it applies across the board, it also calls for deletion of the underlying principles of Area Navigation and its equipment covered under 062 05 01, 062 05 02 and 062 05 03. Have these areas been moved to another subject?

Can anyone shed any light on this?

Cheers

I can't make any sense of this either. The CAA appear to think this is an extra element in the 062 syllabus for ATPL(A), (H) and IR to be introduced by 2018 latest.

I only know the PBN questions are due in Feb.....

There is some talk of using the new LO as a reason to make the heli and aeroplane IRs different, because of the PinS stuff that applies only to helicopters. This hopefully would mean that helicopter candidates also do not get to use charts from CAP 697 and the hi level charts in the Jep.

As I understand it, there would be no requirement for schools to have separate approvals if they are already approved for the full IR.

Our understanding so far is that, despite what Annex 1 says, the PBN subject will be added to 062 across the board, not just for IR, and that national authorities will choose how it should be introduced, subject to a final 2018 date. We believe the UK CAA will ask us to choose whether we initiate it early, and that if we do they will run two parallel Radio Nav exams up to 2018, one with PBN and one without.
