The VATSIM Pilot Ratings

There will be nine distinct ratings for all pilots. The P1 Rating must be passed before any other rating is attempted, but all the other ratings may be attempted without the need to pass any of the other ratings P2 to P9 first.

Training Calendar

This page shows the Club Training activity, both VATSIM Pilot Ratings Flight Tests and other Club training sessions. If you want to check when your flight test is due, or see when you might expect to get a booking, this is the page to go to.

The Student Training Records System

This is the web-based recording system for Student progress and the award of Ratings.  You must be registered with the Club as a Club Member and be logged into the Club Forum before you can gain access to this system.

P1 Rating Syllabus

This is a VATSIM document outlining the training syllabus for the P2 Rating.

P2 Training Manual

For the P2 Rating, the Club's existing Flight Training Manual has been revised and updated with additional material.  This will be the required training documentation for the rating.

The P2 Training Manual, (Document P2.1) therefore, is effectively a summary document which describes which of the Club's existing Training Exercises is relevant to each element of the P2 Syllabus.

Some additional Tutorials have been created specifically for the P2 rating.
These are:

P2 Test Procedure

The P2 test will comprise a written test and a practical flight test. The link above opens a document which is a full description of the procedure adopted by the Club for conducting P2 Rating tests.

P2 Application Form

This is the Application Form to apply to take the P2 Rating tests. On completing this form you will be registered as a Club Student giving you access to the Student Training Records System (STRS) in the "Members' Only" section of the club web site, and enrolled on the P1 Rating Test. It also helps the Club allocate the best Instructor for your training and flight test. The "Visitor Member" category has been discontinued.

NOTE: Once enrolled you have seven days in which to complete and submit the written test otherwise your application will be cancelled and marked as a failure in your STRS records. You will have to re-apply to be enrolled on the test again. The flight test will be arranged once you have passed the written test.
