Canadian Professional Pilot Studies
Couldn't load pickup availability
This is the latest edition (2018) of this authoritative manual outlining the knowledge requirements for pilots wishing to advance to a career as a professional pilot in Canada. The new version of Canadian Professional Pilot Studies not only has many more diagrams and updates relevant to the exams (with some helpful hints from Transport Canada), but a lot more information relevant to the kinds of questions asked on subsequent interviews. In terms of content, this is the most thorough presentation yet for the Commercial, ATP, Instrument Rating, and IATRA exams for both helicopters and aeroplanes, written by an internationally respected pilot with considerable operational experience in both categories, so not only will it help you with the exams, but also the remainder of your career, as it contains many professional tips and tricks direct from commercial operators and pilots. This text contains all the required material listed in the Transport Canada Study & Reference Guides for the above licences and ratings. This book is a key reference used by examiners for all Canadian professional pilot exams.
Just as important as the exams is the interview panel, and this is the book for those who want to deal with both - its purpose is to help you become a professional, for which the exams are but a step on the way - doing the bare minimum to pass them makes you ill-prepared to be a pilot, which is not fair to future passengers and painfully obvious to employers (and examiners) who certainly expect you to have more than the basic knowledge supplied by lesser material. Although it covers the material required for the CPL, INRAT and IATRA exams, it is really focused toward the ATP, to bring Canadian pilots up to modern international standards, written by a pilot with considerable operational experience, and including professional tips and tricks not taught in the classroom, plus a lot you should be taught, were it not for time constraints, based on common questions asked during recurrent training, and known exam questions. It is also useful if you are waiting for a job to turn up and wish to keep your knowledge current, and for people with foreign licences who need to get their Canadian ones in a hurry, so there's real value inside these pages, especially as they don't contain the mistakes and misinformation you will find elsewhere (our digital printing means that changes and feedback are incorporated almost immediately). This means you don't have to buy multiple copies of the same information, or stuff that is freely available from Transport Canada anyway. In other words, this one book covers the same syllabuses as Culhane (Accelerated Aviation Training) does somewhat sketchily over several volumes, so your costs are vastly reduced. Although known exam questions have been worked into the text, there is no substitute for exam practice, and there are free exam questions available from here.
