We hold the designation of a Learning Institute, enabling us to welcome International Students. Additionally, this designation permits students pursuing their Commercial License to be eligible for Student Loans.
Private pilot License (PPL)
The national average hours for the PPL is around 65 hours total. Extra time occurs as each student learns at a different rate and has a different schedule.
Commercial Pilot License
The Commercial Pilot course hours also include a Night Endorsement. With this course, you could also complete your Multi-engine Rating and Instrument Rating at the same time for cost savings.
An excellent entry point for your flying endeavors. Designed for an individual to be able to take one friend along and enjoy some fair weather daytime flying.
Extend your flying day, especially for winter flying or use the Night Rating as a start to your commercial pilot course.
VFR Over-The-Top Rating
The Visual Flight Rules (VFR) Over-The-Top Rating will give you the option to fly over the clouds, as a scenic and safe alternate to low-level flying, to your destination.
Whether honing your skills as a private pilot, or giving yourself a competitive edge in the job market, the Instrument Rating (IFR) is the perfect way to upgrade your skills and become a more proficient and safe pilot in adverse weather conditions.
This entry-level position is a fast track to a career in aviation. The high standard we train to helps our students excel in their aviation career, wherever that ultimately takes them. Our Pilot Examiner is one of the few in Canada that can provide a flight test for this rating.
This course can be taken as a stand-alone upgrade course. This is often done by our business owner students who are upgrading to bigger and/or more capable aircraft. This course can also be integrated into the Commercial Pilot Licence to allow career students to make the best use of their training dollars.
Still unsure about which course to take? Come to our location and meet our instructors. We provide an introduction to aviation, including an hour in the air to see the aircraft in action. Should you choose to take a course, your Discovery Flight time will be put towards your course hours! Contact us to set up a Discovery Flight time.

- Institution does not impose a fee for a student complaint.
- The student can be represented by an agent or a lawyer. The third party representative must produce a formal Power of Attorney from the student that enables them to represent the student. If the student is a minor, a parent or guardian must take part in the dispute resolution. An agent or lawyer must be authorized by a parent or guardian.
- The CFI, or assistant CFI if applicable, will act within 7 days to resolve fairly and reasonably all issues presented to him/her in writing, outlining reason for a decision. In the event an issue cannot be solved through steps above, further action can be taken with the help of a third party, e.g. mediator or court.
