The process of learning to fly solely based on instruments can be a fun and exciting challenge for any pilot. The process includes a minimum of 40 hours of training before a flight test can be completed. Along with other requirements, candidates must write Transport Canada’s INRAT exam. Trillium Air offers a unique approach to teaching the instrument rating, regardless of the type of aircraft. When training, we try to put our students in Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC) rather than use the traditional “hood” device. As well, during flights, we prefer to file actual flight plans, rather than simulate. It has been found to lower the gap between flight school training and the first job that most students obtain. We like to use SOPs and checklists, briefings and planning like CAR 703 and 704 companies. An understanding of the importance of single and two-crew mentalities, as well as the other components of IFR flying can prepare a newly trained IFR pilot for their first job. This leaves a much smaller gap between what is understood of the Commuter and Air Taxi world versus what has been trained. We prefer to condense training in the IFR course to a couple weeks. We offer a unique opportunity for the student to travel, completing continuous IFR training over the period of a few days. Trips range up to 14 days in duration, going anywhere in North America, catered to the students plans and expectations. Currently, although the cost of hotels and food can be expensive, due to the difference in fuel and ramp costs in the U.S., students have been able to save thousands of dollars because of the condensed training while travelling.
