AUS or NZ CPL (H) to Canadian conversion

Postby johnheli » Thu Nov 9 2017, 21:34

Hi All

I know this topic has been posted in the past but looking for some more up to date information on how the convert either my Australian (current) or New zealand (uncurrent) CPL (h) to a Transport Canada Licence. I have 7.2 hours instrument 1500 TT R22, R44, H300, B206 and B47 endorsed. has anyone done it recently, can anyone recommend a company to do it through? also what cost are involved? looking at heading over early next year to do the rounds.

Any help is appreciated.

I suggest that you find another 2.8 hours instrument or else the conversion will not happen.

Don't worry about the last 2 and a bit hours instrument. Do it with them, and gain more time in Canada.

Kids these days....

A quick google and go to Transport Canada webpage all the information you require is there in black and white

https://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/ ... e-1812.htm

Chinook do the conversions every year and last I heard was the only school in Canada that can give you your license on the spot. All others take 3 months to get the print from transport.
so it’s either a flight over and back, or fly over and hang out for 3 months waiting for your license. something to consider this costly exercise

If time is not of the essence then shop around not sure if the school on Vancouver island is still running but he is cheap as chips

I can’t comment on any other training companies in Canada but I can highly recommend chinook as I did my conversion there in 2008. They aren’t a meat factory, if you don’t meet their standard they won’t recommend you to TC for testing until you do. I know a few Australians who were turned away as the instructors weren’t comfortable with the way they flew, I respect people who set a standard & stick to it regardless of the lost financial opportunity. Cathy & Clayton are top class people, they have top class instructors & that’s why they’re top class operators.
