AeroCourse Webinar – INRAT or ATPL

Preparing students for their INRAT – virtually

AeroCourse is pleased to announce the  IFR two weekend Virtual classroom.

As many are spending time staying at home, AeroCourse would like to offer students the opportunity to continue their IFR or ATPL training in a virtual environment.

We have launched two virtual classrooms for ATPL and IFR the beginning of May EST and will continue to add more classes as the interest grows and if we are unable to offer the traditional classrooms. The virtual classroom course is very similar to the in-class format. The platform provides the opportunity to be as interactive with a live instructor as it would be in a traditional classroom. The instructor goes through a power point presentation everyone can see and has the opportunity to ask questions in real time both through a chat function and by raising their hand to speak directly to the instructor and the group.

These classes will be conducted over two consecutive weekends, with homework assigned and question review in between the weekends. We will also plan a review-day for both the IFR and ATPL if Transport Canada does not open the options to write the exams until later this spring or summer.

The virtual courses will have less students (10-12 registrants) so that everyone has a chance to ask questions and get what they need from the course. We also take several breaks in the program – while the content is the4 same as our 3-day course this format takes longer to deliver.Once you register for the course, we will send you a pre-study information package. We require you have the Canadian Instrument Rating Workbook for the IFR and Canadian Airline Transport Licence Workbook for the ATPL and recommend the Aviation & Meteorology: Weather Fundamentals manual as it is referenced in both courses.

The IFR course will run the following hours:

  • Saturday May 2 – 09:00 (9 a.m.) to approximately 16:00 (4:00 p.m.)
  • Sunday May 3 – 09:00 (9a.m.) to approximately 16:00 (4.00 pm)
  • Friday May 8 – 09:00 (9 a.m.) to approximately 16:00 (4.00 pm)
  • Saturday May 9 – 09:00 (9 a.m.) to approximately 16:00 (4.00 pm)
  • Sunday May 10 – 09:00 (9 a.m.) to approximately 13:00 (1:00 p.m. OPTIONAL

The ATPL course will run the following hours:

  • Friday May 1- 09:00 (9 a.m.) to approximately 15:00 (3:00 p.m.)
  • Saturday May 2 – 09:00 (9 a.m.) to approximately 15:00 (3:00 p.m.)
  • Sunday May 3 – 09:00 (9a.m.) to approximately 13:00 (1:00 pm)
  • Friday May 8 – 09:00 (9 a.m.) to approximately 15:00 (4300 pm)
  • Saturday May 9 – 09:00 (9 a.m.) to approximately 15:00 (3.00 pm)
  • Sunday May 10 – 09:00 (9 a.m.) to approximately 13:00 (1:00 p.m.

*PLEASE NOTE All hours are in Eastern Standard Time (EST)* – Toronto time zone

You will be provided with a link to the meeting with a meeting ID, and password for the seminar.

What you will need from your end is good internet connection for a 4-5 day meeting for several hours each day. WIFI works well as long as other major downloads are not happening at the same time. It is best if you have an area where there are little or no distractions, a camera, mic and audio on your computer or tablet and we recommend headsets with a mic where possible. The instructor will ask to see the students on video for the discussion periods.
