E-Learning / International Aviation Procedures

Duration : 15 hours  


Capt. Paul D'Amours holds an Avionics Degree and currently flies air ambulances, based in Montreal. With Approved Check Pilot (TRE) and Training Pilot experience, Paul has dedicated years training fellow pilots to accomplish the most amazing missions all around the world. This unique eLearning course provides all the basic information needed to become familiar with international procedures. It is aimed at pilots, dispatchers, DFOs, chief and training pilots.

At the end of the course, you will know the different organizations and service providers for international operations. You will know where to find the information to plan an international flight, and the equipment and certification requirements. You will read international flight plans and international navigation charts and master position reports. You will also know where to find emergency and contingency procedures and play with foreign altimeter rules like a Rubik's cube. :-)

This is the most cost- and time-efficient way to learn from an active line Captain, using real-life examples and anecdotes. We know you will enjoy the experience and wonder why you didn't take this course earlier!
