Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC)

ID : 9498   
« back to classes page
The Tulsa Community College Riverside Community Campus and Aviation Center is pleased to offer an Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC) and review course for certificated pilots. Instrument Proficiency Checks, or IPCs, are designed to bring up current or lapsed instrument pilots up to speed in as friendly and positive a flight and ground training experience as possible.
This course is designed specifically to allow a certificated pilot to continue using or renew the privileges of their existing instrument rating.  All IPCs conducted at the Aviation Center use the Federal Aviation Administration publication AC 61-98C “Currency Requirements and Guidance for the Instrument Proficiency Check” as the basis for training. The FAA publishes this criterion to help the applicant ensure their ability to safely operate in the National Airspace System and exercise their privileges associated with their instrument rating.

The Instrument Proficiency Check, as noted in 14 CFR 61.57(d), is required when a person has allowed their instrument currency to lapse for longer than 6 months. After such time, a pilot with an instrument rating that is lapsed may reestablish instrument currency only be completing an instrument proficiency check.  
IPC’s consist of ground and flight training. TCC Aviation Center Certificated Flight Instructors (CFIs) will discuss your personal needs and develop an individualized study and training plan with you to meet your desires for your future instrument flying.
All ground and flight training 
are given at the TCC Aviation Center. The ground portion will review current operating and instrument flight rules of 14 CFR Part 91. The in-flight training will review instrument skills that are necessary for the pilot to demonstrate the safe exercise of the aircraft.  All in-flight training will be given in Cessna 172S/G1000 to ensure pilots will be comply with latest Airman Certification Standards (ACS) for the respective certificates and ratings they hold. 
The Aviation Center at Tulsa Community College is a dedicated academic environment and community where learning is applied 
through critical thinking. Our mission is to educate with a strong emphasis on safety and professionalism to elevate our students in their aviation career. After completing registration, please call the Aviation Center at 918-595-3717 or email to schedule flight and ground training.

Additional course enrollment fee includes aircraft rental, flight instruction fees, Aviation Medical Exam, and Background Check.

  • US Citizenship
  • Copies of certificates/ratings
  • Government-issued photo ID 
  • Medical or BasicMed is highly encouraged but is not required
Note: Course completion will be at the discretion of the FAA Certificated Flight Instructor (CFII) in order for the applicant to meet the published FAA Airman Certification Standards and Instrument Proficiency Check standards.
