Basic Instrument procedure design course

Aeronautical Services And Procedures (ASAP) teamed with the Air Navigation Institute (ANI) of Switzerland to provide a basic IFR procedure design courses yearly from 2007 to 2009.

In 2010 ASAP and ANI will Not be holding a basic instrument procedure design course.

However ASAP and ANI Will be holding an Advanced instrument procedure design course in 2010.

Information about the previous basic courses can be seen below

ASAP is the leading IFR procedure design company in the world and has designed over 450 IFR procedures world wide. While ANI is one of the primary training institutions in instrument flight procedure design and provides such training all over the World. This combination of training and practical expertise will result in a course that will give the attendees a unique possibility to assimilate this complex subject.
Our last basic Pans-Ops courses were a total success (click here for information about previous courses 2007, 2008 , 2009) and all involved benefited greatly.

The advantages of a two stage course

As mentioned previously the IFR procedure design basic course is divided into 2 stages with a 7 week break in between the two stages. This was purposely done to realise the following advantages:
• Avoids the proven “sensory overload” symptom which occurs due to the complexity of the course material and the intense learning curve required.
• Allows sufficient time to assimilate the extensive amount of information that will be delivered in stage 1
• Gives the attendees enough time to practice what they have learnt.
• Importantly, enables the course attendees to catch up on mounting work back in the office.
• During the time between courses procedure design questions will arise which will be answered in the second part of the course.

ANI has proven that this 2 stage approach to IFR procedure design training works and results in an attendee having a much better fundamental knowledge of IFR procedure design.
