Your last step in Canada will be the FAA-CA conversion exam, which can be taken at Hamilton International Airport. The exam consists of 20 Air Law questions. Each question is worth 5 points. You will need to score a minimum of 60% (12 questions answered correctly) in order to pass the exam. If you are unable to pass the exam, there will be a 14-day waiting period before you can retake the exam. If you would like to request to take the exam within the 14-day waiting period, you must email an early-reattempt request to CASO-SACO@tc.gc.ca.
The fee for the written exam is $35 CAD, and the fee for shipping the license to your home is an additional $80 CAD. You must have your permanent FAA Commercial Pilot License with you at the time of examination. If you do not have your permanent license, you may ask for more details at CASO-SACO@tc.gc.ca.
