Just as important as the exams is the interview panel, and this is the book for those who want to deal with both - its purpose is to help you become a professional, for which the exams are but a step on the way - doing the bare minimum to pass them makes you ill-prepared to be a pilot, which is not fair to future passengers and painfully obvious to employers (and examiners) who certainly expect you to have more than the basic knowledge supplied by lesser material. It covers the Commercial, ATP, INRAT and IATRA exams, written by a pilot with considerable operational experience in both categories, and includes professional tips and tricks not taught in the classroom, plus a lot you should be taught, were it not for time constraints, based on common questions asked during recurrent training, and known exam questions. It is also useful if you are waiting for a job to turn up and wish to keep your knowledge current, and for people with foreign licences who need to get their Canadian ones in a hurry. The contents include the usual subjects, that is, radio, weather, law, flight planning, etc., right up to the ATPL, plus Human Factors and Going For a Job (with lots of interview questions!).
Aeroplane exams are covered (see Professional Helicopter Pilot Studies for helicopters), as well as the Instrument Rating and IATRA.
