    Hi Fathi.

    The Canadian PPL groundschool is very close to the FAA PPL groundschool. Aside from some regulatory differences and a few minor flight-ops differences, the two would be almost identical.

    I’m not very familiar with the JAA system, but I would imagine that similar comments could be made (at least at the PPL level).

    If you’re looking for some study material for use in the Canadian system, my exam prep workbook can be found here: http://www.skywriters.aero/products/PPLPrep.html.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Hi Fathi.

    Yes. The groundschool portion of the CPL is very similar. Once again you’ll see some regulatory differences and a few minor flight-ops differences. But otherwise the programs should be nearly identical.

    The flight program is different though. We don’t test lazy eights, chandelles, or ground reference maneuvers here in Canada. Of course, just because they aren’t tested doesn’t mean you can’t learn them. Also, although we don’t test ground reference maneuvers directly, your ability to manage winds at low altitude are tested indirectly during the forced approach, precautionary inspection, and diversion. So these differences aren’t as big as they first appear.

    Also, we do test spins. The flight test guide has been changed so that now we only test incipient spins (1/4 turn), but you will almost certainly be trained for full spins — due in no small part to the fact that the full turn spin was a test item until recently.

    I’m not sure what other differences you might see.

    Cheers,
    Steve
