PILOT CHECK OUT PROCESS
New renters will complete a checkout flight – check ride – with our staff pilot on the aircraft that they plan to rent. Pilots will also complete an open book written exam in English.
Once you book your check out process, please review team the POH document for the plane you intend to rent. You may complete the POH exam online prior to the checkout flight.
Please plan to spend 1 – 3 hours on site for the check out process. Total time will depend on experience level.
Checkout Flight Overview – Our pilot will accompany you in the right seat on a short familiarization flight during the aircraft checkout. You will take off and land at Pitt Meadows (YPK). During the flight you will need to demonstrate situational awareness, tower communications, and airplane operation pertinent to the chosen aircraft . The length of the Check Out Flight is typically dependent upon the pilot’s experience in that aircraft.
Written Exam – This is an open book exam in English, covering general pilot knowledge, and questions specific to the aircraft you are renting.
Please review our Pilot Documentation Requirements.
