Read this story in our July 2023 printed issue.

Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) and training and simulation company FlightSafety International (FSI) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for the Approved Training Organisation (ATO) Pilot Project.

This MOU establishes a framework for cooperation regarding the ATO Pilot Project and Transport Canada's development of regulations for the certification and surveillance of ATOs. The ATO Pilot Project will help with the development of a formal standardised method of approving an aircraft specific training programme for pilots who are employed or sponsored by a holder of either a Private Operator Registration Document (PORD) issued under part VI, or a commercial Air Operator Certificate (AOC) issued under Part VII of the CARs. This MOU will allow FlightSafety to develop, maintain and have ownership of the TCCA pre-approved aircraft specific training programmes for Canadian pilots training with FSI.

FlightSafety is excited to work with TCCA and the Canadian aviation industry as the first training provider to sign an agreement promoting standardised and compliant pilot training for Canadian air operators.
