## IREX - Errata

Below is the current errata list for this textbook. These errata will be corrected in the next edition.

30.01.2019

Page 181  Changed minimum fuel required equation to reflect the changed fuel requirements ie: no variable reserve on alternates

Therefore minimum fuel required = [85 +38]  x 1.1+ 45 + 30 = 207 minutes

is now

Therefore minimum fuel required = [85 x 1.1] + 38+ 45 + 30 = 207 minutes

Page 183        [31 +18] x 1.1 + 45 + 30 = 127 minutes.

is now

[31 x 1.1] + 18 + 45 + 30 = 127 minutes.

Revision questions Set 8 Question 9.  You break out of cloud at 850ft not 900ft.  The actual QNH is available at Hay via mobile phone (not indicated on the top of the approach plate).

Revision Questions Set 9 Question 1.  You have the actual QNH and the published visibility is 1.6km.  Even though the AIP says use 1.5km if HIAL is not available, in this case, that would be below the published required of 1.6km.  The answer is now (b).

Page 325 Part 6 Revision Questions Set 10 Question No 3 has changed due to the deletion of the DME arrival.

"You are ﬂying in IMC on W519 from Smithton to Hobart. You are 6nm past Clarke inbound on the 300 radial.
The lowest level to which you may now descend is -"

The answer has been amended to:

"Quite often there is information on the TAC which cannot be found
on the ERC. The lowest safe on the ERC route W710 is 6700 feet,
but the lowest safe after Clark on the TAC is 5700 feet. HOWEVER,
you are also within the 25nm MSA sector on the 300 radial, so you
could descend to 4200 feet! Tricky eh??
"

07.09.2017

Page 170 Answers to Mini Test Question No 4.  The Grid Lowest Safe for the destination is now 1800ft instead of 1900ft.  So the lowest cloud base permitted to allow you to arrive without an alternate is 1800 + 500 = 2300ft.  The answer remains the same - you do not need an alternate.

28.08.2017

Page 176 Revision Exercise 3.  Change the Mallacoota TAF wind to 18017G30.

24.08.2017

Since Air Services have made yet another change without notice to the references in the AIP, some of the references in this book will need to be amended.  The changes affect mostly Chapter 3 on flight planning and in particular the conditions that impose the requirement for planning an alternate.

For example a reference to AIP ENR 1.1 para 8.8.3.1 now becomes AIP ENR 1.1 para 11.8.3.1.  Note that the first 8 becomes 11.  Nothing else changes and there is no change to the actual text of the document.  Wherever a reference says AIP ENR 1.1 para 8.8 followed by further digits indicating sub paragraphs, the change required is to the first 8.  So the reference AIP ENR 1.1 para 8.8 becomes AIP ENR 1.1 para 11.8 followed by the same digits indicating sub paragraphs.

The changes will be included in the next print of the book.

Part 6 Revision questions.  Set 7 Question No 9.  The explained answer to the question gives the tailwind at 10kt.  That has been amended to 15kt in keeping with the wording of the question on Page 320.

21.07.2017

Part 6 Revision Questions Set 2 Question No 7.  The question text has been amended to say that you are flying VH-OZY.  You can continue with the arrival procedure with the VOR failed if you track on the NDB.  The DAP says that the procedure may be carried out using either the VOR or NDB.

21.07.2017

Part 6 Revision Questions Set 3 Question No 4.  The final approach fix on this approach is now 6.3nm.  Amend the answer to 6.3nm.

21.07.2017

Part 6 Revision Questions Set 10 Question No 17.  There is no ERC track to Cootamundra on the current ERC.  The question has been amended to replace Cootamundra with Parks.  That means that the VOR after Griffith would be set to 048.

21.07.2017

Part 6 Revision Questions Set 10 Question No 20.  A better reference for this question is AIP GEN 3.4 Page 79.

Departure into IMC (Page 212).  There used to be a rule that said if you had only a TSO 129 RNAV(GNSS) and your plan was to return to land in the event of an engine failure in IMC, you could not use the RNAV(GNSS) approach minima for take-off.  You had to use the minima for a ground based aid.  That requirement has been removed.  AIP GEN 1.5 para 2.1 table. The requirement for a ground based aid applies to the alternate if you require one.

The May 26 changes to ground based navigation aids have affected some questions and answers in Part 6 of the book.  Even though most of the questions are the same, I have created a link to the revised questions and answers to CIR REVISION QUESTIONS Set 9 and Set 10 (Page 322).  It's been a busy time trying to keep up with CASA, but the Prime Minister did say we have to be 'agile'.

The latest issue of the AIP has changed some paragraph numbers. There is no change at all to the wording but all of AIP ENR 1.1 para 58 (alternate requirements) is now AIP ENR 1.1 para 59.  There are several references to that paragraph in the IREX book.  Please take note - para 58 is now para 59.

23.6.2016

Reference is made to AIP GEN 1.5 para 8.5.5 on Pages 118,311,and 336 of the IREX book.  That paragraph has now been deleted from the AIP so you can ignore those references.

Page 271 (or 261) RNAV (GNSS) 2D Approach 5th paragraph.  Check that the paragraph says "For a landing on runway 05, the aircraft must be clear of cloud by 520 feet (with the actual QNH set) and a visibility of 3.4 km by the missed approach waypoint [FLIWM]."  Also on page 276 (or 266) 3rd paragraph.  Check that the paragraph says "To land on runway 17, we must be clear of cloud by 3040 ft AMSL ( 2940 ft if we have the actual QNH from AWIS) and have an in-flight visibility of at least 3.7 km. So, levelling off at MDA, we hope to become visual if not visual already."   These changes are due to changes in page numbering and also to changes in the associated approach plates.

23.06.2015

Page  (129) 2.24 The value 6.66 is obtained by extension of the one-in-60 rule, which is not entirely mathematically valid.  If you use the exact trigonometric ratios the figure comes to 6.39.  Now that CASA are presenting questions that require a calculated answer to be entered into a computer field, it might be wise to use the more accurate figure.

20.04.2015

Page 219 (4.76)  Exercise 4 Question 17.  The Blackall NDB approach mimima has changed.  The correct answer is now [c] 652 feet and 3.7k visibility.

Part 7, General Questions Question No 24.  The answer should be [c] not [d].  That was a typo.

27.3.2015

Revision Exercises Set 10 Question 4.  The track from Clarke to Hobart is 120°M.  There is now a DME/GPS arrival into Hobart for a sector that includes that track.  The minimum altitude for the DME arrival after Clarke is 5000 feeet. That makes the answer [d] 5000 feet.

24.03.2015

Page 323 Answer to Question 9 Set 2.  The correct answer is [a].  The explanation has been changed to:

"If your intention is to return in the event of an engine failure, you cannot depart unless the conditions of cloud base and visibility will allow you to become visual off one of the instrument approach procedures.
The runway in use is RWY19.   The ILS minuma for OZY would be 270 feet and 1.2 km because you have no PEC or coupled autopilot or flight director.  However, because OZY is not a qualifying aircraft [see AIP ENR 1.5 para 4.3.1], the take-off minima can never be lower than 300ft and 2.0km.  You could however return to fly the ILS approach and expect to become visual at the take-off minima of 300ft and 2.0km."

This is not really an errata, but just a reminder that the CASA syllabus does require you to have a knowledge of both General Met and Operational Met.  If you feel that you are a bit 'rusty' on Met, make sure you go back to your PPL or CPL books an revise things like airframe ice, mountain waves and thunderstorms.  The  book does contain a revision test on Operational Met.

Over recent years Australia has been in the process of changing approach charts from the old criteria to the new ICAO criteria.  That process has now been completed and all charts are now designed to the new criteria.  At numerous places throughout the book, reference is made to 'old criteria charts' and 'new criteria charts'. There is no longer any need to distinguish between these charts.  Please ignore references to new and old criteria charts.

The change was in choice [d]. The answer is [b] but the original choice [d] said "another instrument approach is available at the destination aerodrome."  That was also a correct answer which made two correct answers. Choice [d] now says "you carry a back up RNAV GNSS receiver with you", which makes it an incorrect answer.

Page 4.8: The second paragraph (immediately under the diagram) should read:

"There is no reason why you should not use the GPS approach if you have to return to Kempsey, but you would have to have a GPS with a TSO of 145a or 146a because you cannot plan to use a TSO 129 unless an alternative approach is available.  Although the left-hand box is shaded, you cannot take 100 feet off the landing minima unless you have obtained the actual QNH from an approved source.  An approved source is defined in AIP ENR 1.5 para 5.3.2 (Terminal AU-26 5.3.2).  It does not include the pilot setting the elevation before take-off."

Page 6.4 and 6.23: Set 2, Q9 has been changed.  The answer is now [a], 300 feet and 2 km.  Unless you are a 'qualifying aicraft, [AIP 1.5 para 4.3.1], you can not use take-off minima less than 300ft and 2km. In this case, if you satisfied yourself that the conditions at take-off were 300 feet and 2 km, you could return to land and do an ILS approach and expect to become visual at 300 feet with 2 km visibility.
