Ground School

Commercial Pilot Ground School DEV (CPLDEV)

The commercial pilot ground school is the first step in beginning your career as a pilot. But it's not just for commercial aviators. If you are a private pilot simply looking to expand your skills and knowledge this course is for you as well. Similarily to your Private Pilot Ground School, this course will cover a large variety of information from the following main topics:

Air Law
General Knowledge

Transport Canada requires that this course be a minimum of 80 hours to complete. You will likely spend more time than that as you use this course as a primary study tool.

Following a natural flow, you will review major concepts from the private pilot course and learn new information that will transform you from a recreational pilot to a professional pilot.

Access: 1 year, maintained upon completion of the course.
