AeroCourse has launched an updated 10th edition of its Canadian Instrument Rating Workbook, which has been a key industry learning resource for more than 20 years, developed to accompany AeroCourse ground school seminars. This update replaces the 9th edition of the workbook published in 2017.

Founded more than 30 years ago, AeroCourse continues to provide resource materials and courses both virtually, to address the COVID-19 issues, and in most major cities across Canada when in-person study can resume.

The new workbook, explains AeroCourse, embodies the lessons learned from training thousands of pilots for their INRAT exams and is used for both self-study and part of recognized IFR ground school training. The workbook is designed to logically lead students through the steps required to carry-out an IFR flight. It combines practical and theoretical questions and, according to AeroCourse, does not try to teach answers but provide a solid background of knowledge so the student can arrive at the correct solution to the question.

The Canadian Instrument Rating Workbook, 10th edition, includes an updated Flight Planning section with updated Canada Air Pilot charts and recent changes to GNSS charting. AeroCourse explains this new version, selling for $69.95, incorporates new questions in response to the recent changes in the industry. The company has increased the number of questions to over 580 focusing on six key areas: Met Theory, Practical Met, Flight Planning and IFR Procedures, Radio Aids, Air Regulations and Airspace, and Flight Operations.
