Base training is something you might be interested in if you are a flight school, or a operator operating the Bombardier CRJ Series type. If you from time to time need to do the base training with a freshly trained pilot on Bombardier CL65, this is something you are looking for.

Traffic patterns on long cigar...

Traffic patterns on a multi-pilot aeroplane are the essential part of the Bombardier CL65 typerating flight training except the  ZFTT (Zero Flight Total Time) training type.

In accordance with ORA.ATO.125(j), typerating training consists of flight training in a full flight simulator. The simulator part of the typerating training is completed by the skill test with the TRE CL65. The base training is completed upon the completion of the simulator part of the training. As instructors with special landing training privileges for the CL65, we provide base training for CRJ Series operators and in cooperation with various flight schools.

Base training duration Bombardier CRJ

Base training for Bombardier CL65 (CS-25 certified aircraft) variants, consists of a minimum of 6 landings. If the pilot has flown more than 500 flight hours on aircraft of similar size and performance, the minimum number of landings may be reduced to 4. In this context, it should be noted that different aviation authorities have different opinions when it comes to reduce the number of circuits to 4. For some authorities, it is acceptable to apply this credit for e.g. Bombardier CRJ of Boeing 767 transition.

The decision what is similar and what is not lies on the aviation authority - so-called state of license issue.

Base training for Bombardier CL65CRJ Series is described in AMC2 ORA.ATO.125 as follows:

  • 6, respectively 4 landings
  • 1 full stop landings
  • 1 go-around

TRI for base training

The type rating instructor for Base Training flight training must hold a TRI certificate for Bombardier CL65 type rating. In addition, he must hold either the so-called TRI CL65 unrestricted, or TRI CL65 certificate with base training privileges. Sometimes called as TRI CL65 restricted to landing training.
