(3) Progress Check Procedures
(a) The Progress Check Pilot shall consider the
student's proficiency, judgment, situational awareness, and
overall ability to maneuver the aircraft safely and confidently.
The student must also demonstrate the potential to successfully
complete advanced training. All progress checks must meet MIF
for the most recently completed block of training. Progress
checks shall be full mission profiles emphasizing the student's
weak areas and a representative cross section of area and
pattern maneuvers. All critical items do not need to be
pink ATF for the failed event generating the progress check.
Flight and Ready Room Unsatisfactories proceed in separate,
1. A student's first flight progress check (in
the advanced phase) is an IPC/F (SXX88) event. Any subsequent
flight progress check is an FPC/F (SXX89). Previous RRUs do not
affect this progression.
2. Similarly, the first RRU or academic test
failure generates an IPC/R. A subsequent RRU or academic test
not affect this progression.
(b) IPC. The following defines when to conduct an
IPC, IPC outcomes, and IPC IPs.
Criteria for an IPC/F are:
Failed check ride.
b. Two consecutive or three cumulative
unsatisfactory events in the same block, not including XX87
RRU on a check ride (SXX90).
Criteria for an IPC/R are:
Following an RRU.
Following one academic test failure.
Receiving an OLQ unsatisfactory.
