Other Requirements

Health and vision checks

Because it is such a demanding profession, pilots must be mentally and physically fit. Each pilot must regularly meet medical and vision requirements set out by Transport Canada.

Security Checks

In Canada, all pilots must have official Transportation Security Clearance and a Restricted Area Identity Card (RAIC).

These security requirements can only be met by passing multiple Transport Canada and other regulatory checks, completing a Security Awareness training course, and also providing biometric and other data.
