CPL(A)/IR Requirements


If the student is enrolled in the CPL(A)/IR course, he/she will be instructed in the aeronautical skill and experience necessary to meet the requirement of the CPL(A)/IR:
400 hours of ground school instruction, of which 50% will be classroom based in the subjects listed in subsection 421.30(3) and paragraph 421.46(2)(a) of the Canadian Aviation Regulations and the subjects related to multi-engine IFR operations.
Successful completion of the knowledge requirements for the Private Pilot Licence -- Aeroplane, the Commercial Pilot Licence -- Aeroplane and the instrument rating;
190 hours flight time, including all flight tests, of which up to 40 hours may be instrument ground time consisting of at least:
(i) 100 hours of dual instruction flight time conducted by the holder of a flight instructor rating, of which up to 40 hours may be instrument ground time;
(ii) 90 hours pilot-in-command flight time supervised by the holder of a flight instructor rating;
(iii) 50 hours cross-country flight time as pilot-in-command, including a VFR cross-country flight to a point of a minimum of 300 nautical mile radius from the point of departure and including 3 landings at points other than that of departure;
(iv) 10 hours of night flight time including a minimum of 5 hours dual instruction flight time, including 2 hours of cross-country flight time and 5 hours solo flight time, including 10 take-offs, circuits and landings;
(v) 60 hours of instrument flight time, of which up to 30 hours may be instrument ground time, or up to 40 hours if the training is conducted in a simulator or flight training device that can be used for an instrument rating renewal flight test, including
(A) 40 hours of dual instruction instrument flight time conducted by the holder of a flight instructor rating; and
(B) one dual cross-country flight under simulated or actual IMC conditions of a minimum of 100 nautical miles, the flight to be conducted in accordance with an IFR flight plan to include, at two different locations, an instrument approach to minima; and
(vi) 5 hours flight time on complex or technically advanced aeroplanes (A technically advanced aeroplane means an aeroplane that combines most or all of the following design features: advanced cockpit automation system (glass cockpit), GPS with moving map, automated engine and systems management, and integrated autoflight/autopilot systems for IFR/VFR flight operations)
Successful completion of the flight tests for the Private Pilot Licence -- Aeroplane, the Commercial Pilot Licence -- Aeroplane, the multi-engine class rating and the Group 1 Instrument Rating.

The CPL(A)/IR flight training will be broken into 10 phases: PPL Primary, PPL Advanced, PPL Flight Test Preparation and Flight Test, Night, CPL Navigation, CPL Advanced, Instrument Simulator, Technically Advanced Airplane, Multi-Engine, and Instrument Aircraft.
