Subject Title
Flight Operations II

Subject Description
This course builds on the technical knowledge and skills from FLO 600, which a professional airline pilot requires to function effectively in commercial operation using jet or turboprop transport category aircraft.  Students will build on their knowledge through study and application of airline flight operations procedures towards meeting the knowledge requirements for the Transport Canada Airline Transport Pilot written examinations.  This course examines advanced scenarios relating to aircraft flight limitations during all phases of flight, including in flight icing, low visibility procedures, high altitude performance, and avoidance and recovery techniques from extreme phenomena such as wind shear, jet upset, clear air turbulence and aircraft control malfunctions.  Emphasis is placed on safety and avoidance and accident reports are used to demonstrate correct piloting techniques and effective decision making skills
