Schedule and Duration
Program of Study
This component consists of 25 hours of ground training which has the candidate learning how to conduct Preparatory Ground Instruction (PGI) as well as preparing for the Transport Canada written examination. The training follows through the Flight Instructor Guide and Flight Training Manual through a typical student’s progress toward their Private or Commercial Pilot Licence. During this training, the Class 1 instructor simulates the actions of many student behaviours from nervousness to overconfidence. The Flight Instructor Rating program requires a significant amount of self-study as the candidate prepares their PGI lesson plans for upcoming sessions.
Concurrently with the ground training component, a candidate will also go through 30 hours of dual flight training. Similar to what was covered on the ground, the Class 1 instructor will simulate a Private or Commercial Pilot student as the candidate learns how to apply proper instructional techniques. By the end of the training, the candidate will be well prepared for the Transport Canada flight test as well as having a thorough understanding of the duties and requirements of a Class 4 Flight Instructor.
The next recommended intake for those interested in the Flight Instructor Rating program is September 2016.
