Competency Based Instrument Rating (CB IR)
Privileges and conditions
Competency Based Instrument Rating (CB IR) will give pilots holding a PPL(A) or CPL(A) the privileges to fly under IFR, including PBN operations, with a minimum decision height of no less than 200 feet (60 m). Competency Based Instrument Rating (CB IR) will give you the same privileges as Instrument Rating (IR) but with less theory and flight training.

- hold at least a valid PPL(A), and
- have completed at least 50 hours cross-country as PIC of which at least 10 hours shall be in the relevant aircraft category.
- have the privileges to fly aeroplanes at night if the IR privileges will be used at night.
If an instrument rating is added to a PPL, the licence holder shall undertake pure tone audiometry examinations in accordance with the periodicity and the standard required for class 1 medical certificate holders.
Before skill test, the student must have completed a language proficiency test with at least level 4 in English.
The flight training can be partially completed with a freelance instrument rating instructor. A minimum of 10 hours of instrument flight time under instruction must be completed at an ATO.
At least 40 hours instrument flight time under instruction. Approximately 45 hours block time. When applicable, credit for previous experience may be given.
