Canada Pilot Program - Train in USA | AeroGuard



Canada Pilot Program

High-Quality Commercial Pilot Training for International Students From Canada

Vlog provides excellent training for international students from Canada focused on helping them achieve their goals of being a professional pilot.

Canada and the United States have a Bilateral Aviation Safety Agreement (BASA) which allows for pilots from each country to transfer the flying privileges between the nations relatively easily. Within the BASA is Implementation Procedures for Licensing (IPL) identifying the rules for license conversions, with AeroGuard creating an FAA program that can be easily converted by the Civil Aviation Directorate (CAD). Through these FAA licenses, medical certificate, logbook records, and an additional knowledge exam (for IR and CPL), students can then be issued a Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCAA) license.
