RCAF personnel doing license conversions will find that the cost is significantly cheaper as a result of reduced time typically needed to complete rating criteria, due to previous military training and experience. This is dependent on the individual. If desired, MFC will endeavor to do the military-to-civilian conversion in a short time frame (ex: a weekend).
