The Additional Practicum will be utilised by students, to complete any additional flight hours required to meet competency within the associated practicum. As there are three different types of aircraft flown in this Practicum, this will constitute either; 9 hours dual flight in a C172 aircraft or 7.4 hours dual flight in a C182 aircraft or 5.7 hours dual flight in a PA44 aircraft or a combination of the aforementioned flight hours.
