Our Check Pilot course for initial and recurrent Approved Check Pilots (ACPs) covers areas such as:
- Administrative Responsibilities
- ACP Delegation and Authorities
- Transport Canada Licensing Requirements
- Planning and Conducting a PPC
- Flight Test Standards
- Briefing Techniques
- IFR Rules and Procedures
- PPP Evaluating and Comments
- Crew Resource Management and Threat and Error Management
- CAL Debriefing Techniques
Our initial courses are 4.5 days long compared to 6 days at other providers. This allows for weekday travel to and from the course. We have a perfect record for candidate completion of Transport Canada initial briefing and monitoring events.
There are also options for simulator sessions, which are required for candidates who will conduct rides as an ACP in simulators as a delegate of the Minister of Transportation. Numerous ex-patriot heavy jet pilots have been completing our Initial course for Type Rating Examiners (TREs) equivalency purposes overseas.
Practical simulator training is completed in full-motion simulators at Flight Safety International or CAE Aviation & Training Services in Toronto as opposed to fixed, non-motion sims on-site at other course provider offices.
