Type Ratings

What if the aircraft you are looking at is classified as a “high performance aircraft”? This happens when a certified aircraft has:

A V AV N E SO

of over 250 knots or of more than 80 knots

As explained in CAR 421.40 if your aircraft is “high performance” then it is not a showstopper, you will just need a type rating.

The requirements for the rating are fairly straightforward:

High Performance Aeroplane (i) Knowledge An applicant for an individual aircraft type rating for a high performance aeroplane shall have completed ground training on the aeroplane type. (ii) Experience An applicant shall have completed flight training and have acquired a minimum of 200 hours pilot flight time on aeroplanes. (iii) Skill Within the 12 months preceding the date of application for the rating, an applicant shall have successfully completed a qualifying flight under the supervision of a Transport Canada Inspector or a qualified person qualified in accordance with CAR 425.21(7)(a)
