TC CPL Instrument time requirement.

#1 Post by TopGun1234 » Mon Jun 18, 2018 11:06 pm

I'm a little confused as to how instrument time is credited towards the CPL requirements.

(https://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/ ... 1-1086.htm)
DIVISION VII - COMMERCIAL PILOT LICENCE
421.30 Aeroplanes - Requirements

(4) Experience

(a) An applicant for a commercial pilot licence — aeroplane shall

(ii) following the issuance of a private pilot licence — aeroplane by Canada or another contracting state, have completed 65 hours of commercial pilot flight training in aeroplanes consisting of a minimum of:
(amended 2006/12/14; previous version)
(A) 35 hours dual instruction flight time, under the direction and supervision of the holder of a Flight Instructor Rating — Aeroplane, including:


(III) 20 hours of instrument flight time in addition to the experience stated in subclauses (I) and (II). A maximum 10 hours of the 20 hours may be conducted on an approved aeroplane simulator or synthetic flight training device.
(amended 2006/12/14; previous version)
Would the Instrument time completed during my entire training from the start (PPL-Night Rating-CPL) be able to be counted towards the 20hrs required for the CPL? Is it only the instrument time done post-PPL that can be credited?

Thx!
