Company Training Pilot Course (TRI)


This course is designed to teach the candidate the skills and knowledge required to act as a company training pilot for CAR 702 and 703 air operators.  It is tailored towards pilots who have operational experience with a Part 702/703 air operator but has no experience as a flight instructor.  There are many hazards involved with flight training, therefore training pilots should have the skills and knowledge to teach emergency procedures safely.  This course will instruct the candidate on how to safely teach all of the required training exercises to the standard required by the Canadian Aviation Regulations. The 10 hours flight training and 10 hours of ground school in this course may be credited towards the Class 4 Instructor Rating if the candidate meets the Transport Canada prerequisite's since it is taught by a Class I Instructor and follows part of the Transport Canada Class 4 Flight Instructor Rating Syllabus.
