2.1 Classification System

2.1.1 There are four levels of aeroplane simulators: Levels A, B, C and D, with Level D simulators being the most sophisticated. The more sophisticated the simulator, the more training and checking may be approved for that simulator. Procedures for applying for approval of an aeroplane simulator are identical for each level. These levels equate in every way to the FAA Levels A, B, C and D and relate to earlier Transport Canada and FAA classifications as follows: Level A was Visual, Level B was Phase I, Level C was Phase II and Level D was Phase III.
