Welcome to IVAO Portugal’s most famous event, the infamous Madeira CAT C event.
Madeira, being a category C airport, requires a special formation/training to operate as the PIC. This means that only those with that certification will land there.
This event will actually start in Lisbon, where every pilot will attend a briefing. This will include everything one needs to know in order to proper land at Madeira.
Afterwards, there will be a Flight from Lisbon’s LPPT to Madeira’s LPMA. This is a short 1h30 leg, where every PIC is able to review the procedures for the approach, and then to try it.
By successfully performing the approach, one may obtain a certificate confirming that is able to operate in Madeira.
One of our main events is the Madeira CAT C. In 2017, we have had the opportunity to certify at least 20 new candidates with the Madeira Category C certification. The event had a tutorial, theoretical session, and a short Lisbon – Madeira flight, where each candidate would perform the standard approach and go around procedures at Madeira. By completing these activities, one would then receive a score, and an overall appreciation on where to improve.
