Canada Vs. US Commercial Pilot Written Exam

Asked by: 2490 views
Commercial Pilot, General Aviation

Hello, I recently moved to Canada and I'm starting my commercial training. One thing that I've noticed is that unlike the FAA Written Exam, study guides for the Canadian Commercial written are hard to find. Does anyone with exp with both know how close the two exams are to each other? Or if there is a place I can find bank questions for the the Transport Canada exam? Thanks!

    Hello Stephen,

    We are the sponsors of AskACFI and make written test prep material for both FAA (FAAtest.com) and Canadian (CanadaPilot.com) written tests. We do not yet have a Canadian Commercial Pilot Aeroplane product, but this is actually something we are working on.

    The Canadian written tests are similar to their US counterparts in areas that you could expect to be similar – such as aerodynamics and aircraft systems. However, they differ greatly when it comes to things like regulations and weather. For example, the Canadian Commercial Pilot Aeroplane knowledge exam contains potentially numerous questions about Canadian Air Taxi regulations.

    Because of the wide differences, FAA test prep materials are not really suitable for Canadian exam study. While I’d like to offer you our Canadian Commercial written test apps, unfortunately as I said these are probably a few months away at this point. There are several Canadian book publishers, all reasonably similar to each other, who have preps available. They all have sample questions.

    Thanks for the info. I’m using Pilottraining.ca and it is quite robust. Something like 200 hrs worth of video, but really really good material.
