The main study guide for studying the SAMRA and SARON exams is the TP 690E/F. This guide is located here.

Below are the topics which are fairly common to see on the SARON. For the ease of reading and making a point, we have taken the format of Transport Canada's written examination results forms.


-­‐    Calculate the CG 

-­‐    Compute the critical point 

-­‐    Define a large aircraft 

-­‐    Demonstrate requirement for two way communications 

-­‐    Demonstrate the use of the simplified planning chart 

-­‐    Describe when reverted rubber hydroplaning can occur 

-­‐    Explain the relationship between cigarette smoking and hypoxia 

-­‐    Identify anti-­‐skid operating properties 

-­‐    Identify carbon monoxide facts 

-­‐    Identify the components of a turbine engine 

-­‐    Identify various deicing fluids and their properties 

-­‐    Interpret VASIS indications 

-­‐    Predict the effects of airframe icing
