General

Knowledge Requirements

There is no mandatory ground school for an Airline Transport Pilot Licence - Aeroplane. An applicant is expected to have mastered the various subjects included in this guide and to demonstrate that knowledge by passing two written examinations. The Airline Transport Pilot Licence – Aeroplane also requires a multi-engine instrument rating, therefore an applicant without such a valid rating must complete the requirements for an instrument rating as well.

Examination Rules

CAR 400.02

  • (1) Except as authorized by an invigilator, no person shall, or shall attempt to, in respect of a written examination:
    • a) copy or remove from any place all or any portion of the text of the examination;
    • b) give to or accept from any person a copy of all or any portion of the text of the examination;
    • c) give help to or accept help from any person during the examination;
    • d) complete all or any portion of the examination on behalf of any other person; or
    • e) use any aid or written material during the examination.
  • (2) A person who commits an act prohibited under subsection (1) fails the examination and may not take any other examination for a period of one year.

Materials Required

A pencil is required for rough work. Electronic calculators are useful and are permitted if their memory is cleared before and after the examination. Computers capable of storing text are not approved. Navigation tools (ruler/scale, flight computer) are required for the navigation questions. A list of approved electronic navigation computers is available at: http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/opssvs/general-exams-computers-2011.htm.

Validity Period

Examinations that are required for the issuance of a permit or licence or for the endorsement of a permit or licence with a rating shall be completed during the 24-month period immediately preceding the date of the application for the permit, licence or rating.

Rewriting of Examinations

CAR 400.04

  • (1) A person who fails an examination or a section of a sectionalized examination required for the issuance of a flight crew permit, licence, rating or foreign licence validation certificate is ineligible to rewrite the examination or the failed section for a period of
    • a) in the case of a first failure, 14 days;
    • b) in the case of a second failure, 30 days; and
    • c) in the case of a third or subsequent failure, 30 days plus an additional 30 days for each failure in excess of two failures, up to a maximum of 180 days.

Examination Feedback

Feedback statements in the results letter will inform the candidate where questions were answered incorrectly.

Example of Feedback Statement

Identify the atmospheric conditions favourable to thunderstorm formation.
