04 - Reduced Ground Roll (RGR)

The course is designed to address only take-off procedures. The Reduced Ground Roll (RGR) – 20 Degree Flap Take-Off procedures are outlined in the Transport Canada (TC) approved Viking AFM supplements for the DHC-6 Series 100, 200, 300, 400 and variants. Operators must contact their local regulatory authority to determine if this training program presents an acceptable means of compliance for employing the RGR – 20 Degree Flap Take-off procedures.

Although suggested procedures are provided throughout this course, it must be understood that no two situations will be the same (wind, cloud, visibility, surface and surrounding terrain may all vary) and it is up to the pilot to determine the safest means to conduct the operation based on experience.


Initial RGR Course: Three (3) days

Recurrent RGR Course: One (1) day
