INSTRUCTOR RATING REQUIREMENTS

PREREQUISITES

Prior to commencing training towards instructor rating, the candidate must hold a valid Commercial Pilot License and a Category 1 Medical

MINIMUM FLYING REQUIREMENTS

This rating requires candidates to complete a minimum of 30 hours of dual flight training with a class 1 instructor, of which 5 hours must be instrument training. 

In addition, 25 hours of ground instruction is required

A Transport Canada written exam and a flight test must both be passed to obtain this rating

TRAINING COST

Demonstrating proficiency throughout this process and preparing for the flight test usually requires more time than the Transport Canada minimums.  Accounting for these additional hours we usually advise that students budget $10,000 plus GST to spend on the Instructor Rating portion of their training.

Non-flying expenses include:

  • Flight Test Fee - $400

  • Written Exam Fee - $110

HOW LONG IS THIS GOING TO TAKE?

The timeline for an instructor rating can vary greatly. Past candidates have taken an average of 6 months to complete their instructor ratings
