Air Georgian provides comprehensive world-class training programs recognized for their excellence in all aspects of aviation and flight operations training. All are Transport Canada approved and are available depending on demand, with the exception of the ACP course, which is run quarterly. Programs include:

Approved Check Pilot Course:

Our Check Pilot course for initial and recurrent ACPs covers areas such as Administrative Responsibilities; ACP Delegation and Authorities; TC Licensing Requirements, Planning and Conducting a PPC, Flight Test Standards, Briefing Techniques, IFR Rules and Procedures, PPC Evaluating and Comments, CRM and TEMs, and CAL Debriefing Techniques. 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.

Our initial courses are 4 ½ days long compared to 6 days at other course 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.

Practical simulator training is completed in full-motion simulators at Flight Safety International or CAE in Toronto as opposed to fixed, non-motion sims on-site at other course provider offices. Numerous ex-patriot heavy jet pilots have been completing our Initial course for TRE equivalency purposes overseas.
