The Approved Check Pilot (ACP) course is designed to inform participants of the latest developments pertaining to the performance of flight evaluations. The course focus is on the process of conducting flight checks (pilot proficiency checks, including line checks and the instrument flight test).
The course includes:
- Pre-flight activities including the flight check briefing.
- Flight check and associated performance standards upon which flight check sequences are assessed.
- Post flight activities, including de-briefing and completion of flight check documentation.
The ACP (Initial) Course also places emphasis on instrument flight rules and procedures, as well as practical application wherein course participants have the opportunity to conduct two flight check grading sessions.
The ACP (Recurrent) Course provides an update of the approved check pilot program, including policy and procedural changes, check pilot issues arising from the ACP Workshop, and any other information pertinent to flight checking.
Participants also have the opportunity to upgrade a series of flight check scenarios. CHC offers the ACP not only to Canadian Operators and Transport Canada personnel, but also to foreign authorities and Air Operators in an effort to build a global forum for the sharing of information and expertise.
