The BETTERPILOTS project is pleased to offer a variety of seminars and courses to pilots who wish for the best training available. The following courses are currently in the roster:
BETTERPILOTS - FULL IFR:
This is the big Kahuna of IFR prep. It sets the standard for pilots wishing to be overprepared for the Transport Canada written (INRAT) but has also been attended by pilots who have been away from IFR, and some who are curious about the instrument flying environment. While it covers a massive amount of information, the pace is brisk but not overwhelming. I have spent nearly a decade finding ways to make this information as simple as possible.....and believe it or not, actually enjoyable!
**To date, 100% of the pilots who have attended this course and written the exam have passed! Nice job crew!**
BETTERPILOTS - IFR 'Short':
This is a renewal/refresher one day event. It is dramatically different from the more common one day programs in that state of the art techniques like 3D animation are used to get the pilot more immersed in the concepts. It is a 'situation/solution' based program and by the end YOU will handling all the aspects of planning and executing a variety of IFR flights from planning all the way to the arrival at your alternate. The program graduates from some very simple short hop situations, to sophisticated GNSS based planning to non standard-aerodromes and includes valuable information on planning flights into uncontrolled airspace as well as considerations for operations in this countries busiest locations. Oh yeah....it's a LOT of fun too!
Perfect for a pilot approaching a renewal/requalification flight test, the pilot wishing one last top-up prior to writing, or anyone wishing to sharpen some of the tools of the IFR trade.
THIS COURSE IS OFTEN OFFERED FREE OF CHARGE IN VICTORIA (CYYJ) AND BOUNDARY BAY (CZBB) contact me or my affiliates for dates and locations!
METEOROLOGY for BETTERPILOTS:
Hundreds of pilots have attended my MET seminars and the massive amounts of positive feedback was greatly appreciated. This ALL NEW Met course covers enough info for the ATPL candidate and well beyond, but is presented in a way that a private pilot student can easily keep up. Those of you who know me will remember that meteorology for pilots has been a passion of mine for over 10 years and this course showcases the fascinating and surprisingly easy to understand methods I have come across and distilled into a one day event. I guarantee you will NEVER look at the sky again after this course!
I have offered combination ATPL/IFR programs, specialized IFR refreshers for corporate flight departments as well as numerous one-offs for crew approaching renewal or recertification flight tests. Contact me with your needs, and I'll make sure they are met. if I cannot deliver what you need personally, I have established a network of some of the finest women and men in the business and one of them is sure to have what you are looking for.
