    Hello there, I’ve been issued with a commercial (helicopter) pilot license from Bangladesh. Including my past career with Bangladesh Air Force, I’ve been with aviation for over 21 years. Grand total flying is over 3100 of which 2600+ in military and 500+ in commercial field. I’m current in flying and type rated on EC-130 and Robinson R-66 helicopter. I’m interested to come to Canada in search of pilot job for which i want to earn a Canadian pilot license (helicopter). Can you please guide me with steps for that covering probable cost and time needed for that. Thanks in advance.
