Obtaining a pilot licence consists of two parts:
In-flight training helps you learn and understand the performance of your aircraft. Initial flight training is conducted dual, with an Instructor, until you have achieved a level of competency that allows you to practice solo. The length of time it takes you to reach this stage will depend on your ability and frequency of training.
Ground school classes prepare you for the written exam. Classes are recommended for all potential pilots. The course material simplifies the theory of flight and explains topics as diverse as aircraft structure, engine operations, and how to interpret meteorological conditions. Other integral parts of the program include interpreting Canadian air law and developing navigational skills.
Second Career training is specially designed to help laid-off Ontarians participate in long-term training for a new job and may be available to pilots who hold a Private Pilot Licence.
