If you have a question about what the requirements are for the 180 deg precision landing on the CPL flight test I recommend you go to the TC web page and download the CPL flight test guide.

If you have any advice for instructors on how best to actually teach this manoever then I would suggest you post that as it is exactly what I, as the OP, was hoping would be added to this thread.

Everyone has a different way about doing things. This is the way I feel I can give back.
The spirit is noble.

That said, though I have over reached before with piloting, after a few minorly embarrassing moments, where it was suddenly apparent that I knew less than I thought, I found it very worthwhile to wait to be asked to provide training, before I presented it to the world. Thus, those people who sought training from me, had decided for themselves that I had something they valued, rather than me assuming that I did.

Having trained and test flown for many years, I'm now content to learn rather than teach. Instructing is very worthwhile, and a little more risky than might first appear....

What are the chances of being hired in Ontario? It seems like the schools only hire people who did their rating at the same school?

An instructor rating is gold there, maybe a few of the popular ones in the GTA hire their own, but you'd be able to get a job easily
