In this exemption:

This instrument applies to a person undertaking an instrument rating flight test for the issue of an ILS, NDB or VOR navigation aid endorsement (the applicant).

Schedule 1 Extent of exemption
1 In spite of the requirements of subparagraph 2.1 (d) of Appendix I to CAO 40.2.1, an applicant may, for the initial endorsement of the VOR navigation aid on an instrument rating, use a synthetic trainer to demonstrate proficiency in sector entry and holding procedures.
2 In spite of the requirements of subparagraph 2.1 (d) of Appendix I to CAO 40.2.1, an applicant may, for the initial endorsement or renewal of the ILS navigation aid on an instrument rating, demonstrate competence in the use of the navigation aid:

(b) without demonstrating an ILS holding pattern.
3 In spite of the requirements of subparagraphs 3.5 (a) and (b) of Appendix I to CAO 40.2.1, if a descent is specified on the outbound leg of an NDB or VOR procedure, the applicant, for initial issue or renewal, may commence the descent to the required altitude without achieving the required tolerance of +/- 5o of nominated track, if the descent is carried out in accordance with the operational procedures mentioned in AIP or in ATC instructions.
