Treinamento ACP—para pilotos de hoje e do amanhã

CHC's Transport Canada certified Approved Check Pilot (ACP) courses educate both fixed- and rotory-wing pilots on the latest developments in performance of flight evaluations. The English speaking courses focus on the process of conducting flight and pilot-proficiency checks, including:

  • Pre-flight activities, including the flight-check briefing
  • Flight-check and associated performance standards upon which flight-check sequences are assessed
  • Post-flight activities, including debriefing and completion of flight-check documentation

We offer the following ACP training programs:

  • ACP Initial, including Practical (six days)
  • ACP Initial, theory only (four days)
  • ACP Recurrent (four days)

Classroom instruction is conducted at our training facility near Vancouver International Airport. Practical training is done at Abbotsford Airport.

The ACP (Initial) Course emphasizes instrument flight rules and procedures. It includes a practical application segment where course participants perform two flight-check grading sessions.

The ACP (Recurrent) Course provides an update of the approved check-pilot program, including policy and procedural changes, check-pilot issues arising from the ACP Workshop and other information pertinent to flight checking. Participants will grade a series of flight-check scenarios.

Note: This is not a DFTE course. Please contact Transport Canada for more information about DFTE requirements and training.
