The CAA have published Information Notice IN-–2016/102 which summarises how pilots may qualify for a Part-FCL Competency Based Instrument Rating (CBIR). This Information Notice supersedes IN–2016/011.

The CBIR applies only to non-high performance (non-HPA) aeroplanes and may be extended to HPAs only if additional technical knowledge training is undertaken.
