subjects for the Transport Canada Private pilot written
examination (PPAER) for aeroplanes, the Transport Canada
Recreational Pilot Permit written (RPPAE) for aeroplanes, and
the Student Pilot and Air Regulations exam (PSTAR). While no
preparation material can in all honesty guarantee you a
passing mark on your actual test, If you use this software
conscientiously and study both the questions and explanations
and can answer the vast majority of the 1000+ questions, you
are very, very likely to pass your test and pass with a very
high score indeed! Topics
- Air Law
- Air Traffic Procedures
- Aircraft Systems

This software can be used for independent home study,
and with your school's/FTU's consent and supervision, time
spent completing this course can be transferred over to meet
the minimum ground school hour requirements. This software is
up-to-date with latest Canadian aviation regulations and for
the new Graphic Area Forecast weather format. Unlike with
books and/or other courses, updates to this software are
the more you learn on the ground now, the less you will pay
and struggle in the air later.

Authors Wanted! - We are currently looking for qualified aviation
authors (maybe you or an instructor that you might know?) to develop high quality
ORIGINAL aviation content (basically, questions, answers, and explanations) for future Canadian Commercial Pilot Aeroplane
and ATP versions of our theory exam preparation products. Interested parties should send the following in an email to jobs(at)dauntless-soft.com:
We appreciate that we are asking quite a lot from applicants, but otherwise in our experience "tire kickers" become an issue. Hence, we ask you to
get a feel for the actual work involved so that you can see if it is for you.
- A statement of interest, including a brief bio which convinces us that you indeed have the background to credibly undertake such a project
- Your proposed outline of the chapters/content that your question sets will cover and the approximate total number of questions in each
- At least 10 sample questions, complete with 1 correct answer, 3 credible 'distractor' answers, and a detailed, intelligent explanation.
At least 1 of the sample questions must include a chart or figure to reference, and at least 3 of the samples must include figures or diagrams
in the explanations. While any charts (performance charts, navigational chart excerpts, etc) you provide should be "good to go" based on scanned
originals, your illustations to answering questions need not be more than rough sketches as
our designers will improve upon these.
- A proposal of the tmieline to completion, including milestones for numbers of questions / chapters done by certain date(s).
- Your renumeration request. Please note that our budget here is quite limited, though besides what we can afford to pay you, you will also
have the satisfaction of helping flight students while we will of course provide you with personal promotion and references that might otherwise
help your career.
In addition to Canadian Commerical Pilot and ATP aeroplane titles, we also welcome proposals along generally similar lines from others who
think they have a good idea, again, with a credible proposal/schedule and sample of work.
We look forward to hearing from you!
"I purchased your PSTAR recreational pilot about two
weeks ago and wrote the PSTAR test today in Fort St. John BC.
I completed the 50 questions in 17 minutes and received a
score of 100%. You make the test very easy." -
ground school a year ago, and for a number of reasons (mostly
procrastination), did not write PSTAR till now - wrote in 10
minutes and achieved 98% after studying one evening using
Dauntless software. Great confidence builder!" - NF
