Commercial Pilot License2018-11-23T14:03:44+00:00

All our flight lessons are now scenario based to better prepare you for the real world.

Ground School

Our next commercial ground school starts Jan 9, 2019.

If you would like to be put on the Interested Students list to be notified when we get a start date and schedule ready call Dispatch at 403.288.8831.

 What To Expect

To complete your commercial license, you will have to time build to accumulate the minimum hours required (200 hours). You will need 100 hours PIC and 200 hours Total time. This makes it hard to give students set cost or timeline for CPL since everyone will be at a different place and progressing at different speeds in their training. Weather also affects how fast you can complete your training.

To help complete your CPL, Student Aid from the Government of Canada and Alberta is available. Talk to dispatch for more information.

It is strongly recommended that students make every effort to complete the reading assignments prior to each class. All students are required to write 2 practice exams available at dispatch. Once an average score of at least 80% has been attained, a letter of recommend will be issued in order to challenge the Transport Canada exam. Your feedback aids a great deal in the ongoing development of our ground school. Please complete the ground school critique at the end of each class and submit it at the end of the course. THANK YOU.
