Has there been any changes to CARs 421.26

Post by rigpiggy » Wed Oct 31, 2018 10:58 am

We have a number of people that i believe are getting hosed by the local flying school. They have been telling there students that "transport" likes to see the PPL students have 70 hrs before flight test. Such that they have been padding the times"62 hrs for a rec license". Anybody have any info reTC guidance.

Ensign Ricky: Aw, crap.

I've heard that before. There could be multiple reasons why an instructor says that: bad experience with TC examiner, trying to save a student's feelings by blaiming TC instead of the student's (lack of) progress, or an evil instructor/manager trying to milk the students. Possibly other reasons as well.

But it is absolutely not required.

(a) An applicant shall have completed a minimum of 45 hours private pilot flight training in aeroplanes under the direction and supervision of the holder of a Flight Instructor Rating - Aeroplane. A maximum 5 of the 45 hours may be conducted on an approved aeroplane simulator or flight training device.
(amended 1998/09/01)
No changes in twenty years, so it's a crock of bull chit.

Obviously less is better but if it's taking you longer to get to your flight test, AND you are going all the way to CPL it really doesn't matter. You need 200 hours regardless and a few extra hours to get you a very solid base of knowledge to build on is not the end of the world.

The requirements haven't changed. Pilots on average seem to take longer than the required 45 hours, so perhaps the school was quoting 70 hours as the average completion time? That seems like a lot to me. I know TC gets skeptical if they see bare minimum hours... but if they passed the exam, and can back the hours in the log book with their PTR, they're good to go.
