Information Sessions - College of Professional Pilots of Canada


Recommended Posts

Dear Rotorcraft Pilots of Canada


The College of Professional Pilots of Canada is working to set up our own self-governing, professional standards organization the same as teachers, engineers, architects, doctors, lawyers, and accountants have for their professions. In an effort to increase our visibility and reach out to new members, we have developed a Cross-Country schedule of Information Sessions starting in January, 2014. These free events are open to all pilots or potential future pilots that:

  • are considering joining the College but need more information first
  • have never heard of the College before
  • have concerns about the College

A board member will be present at all of the following functions to address any concerns you may have regarding this initiative and they will be happy to dispel any misinformation that may be circulating regarding the role of the College.

Each event features a presentation (45 minutes), Question & Answer period (up to 30 minutes), and a closing Meet & Greet (45 minutes). The Meet & Greet is a great networking opportunity for students or junior pilots to meet senior pilots and get invaluable career advice. All start times are 7pm local (except for Castlegar, BC on Feb. 24th which starts at 1pm).
