needed without any extra cost.

The Check Ride
A designated flight examiner from Transport Canada will examine your final ride. Upon successful

Minimum Requirements for a A320 rating on a Transport Canada license.

current instrument rating from another country, this will be acceptable. After you successfully complete
the check ride the following requirements must be met in order to have the type rating on a Canadian
Transport Canada has a minimum requirement of 250 hours total time. You also must have a valid pilot's
license, either an Airline Transport Rating or have completed the Transport Canada multi crew exam. For
those who only require a letter from Transport Canada acknowledging successful completion of your
check ride, there are no minimum requirements or medical required. Pilots converting their FAA license
to a Canadian license will require successful completion of a Transport Canada Air Law test and have
passed a group one medical. For those students who wish the endorsement on their Indian license,
please add $4000.00 dollars to the course cost. This extra charge is to pay for extra specific training that
the Indian DGCA requires. All other ratings on foreign licenses do not require a minimum flight time
World wide acceptance of Your Rating
Unlike American licenses, Canadian licenses may be accepted in other ICAO countries. For students that
hold French or British licenses and acquire 500 hours on type, and undertake a successful JAA simulator
check ride with an approved TRTO. You will be granted a JAA/JAR type rating on your Euro license. There
are an increasing number of countries (Belgium, Denmark, Australia, Luxembourg, Serbia, Jordan and others) that only require a letter from Transport Canada acknowledging that you have met all the
requirements in successfully attaining a type rating. With this letter, you do not have to write off ANY
Canadian exams, nor attend a medical exam and will have the rating endorsed on your license in your
