TC Recency Seminars


Ontario pilots have a variety of opportunities to maintain their recency requirements and maybe learn something as Transport Canada is set to launch its fall set of safety seminars.

Those near Toronto can attend any of three free evening seminars at TC’s facility at 4900 Yonge St. Attending any one of them satisfies the two-year recency requirement. They’re all held in the third floor auditorium from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

On Sept. 20, Nav Canada’s Rob Elford, an aviation briefer from the London Flight Information Centre, will give a “virtual tour” of the FIC and the services it provides. He’ll go over weather briefings and flight planning and give some insight into the location-specific weather phenomena that affect that area of Ontario.

Oct. 18, a Transportation Safety Board accident investigator will discuss the latest trends in accidents and incidents in Ontario. It’s a chance to meet one-on-one with an accident investigator to get first hand knowledge about the latest safety trends.

Nov. 15, a flight instructor discusses the many extra precautions and preparations pilots need to take during winter. “Additional care and planning is required for operating an aircraft in colder temperatures, during inclement weather and flying while wearing bulky clothing,” TC says in its announcement.
