Student Training Program Options
As the Program is for career pilots, we do not accept international students for PPL only. All international students must attend the school with the intentions of completing the CPL or to obtain ratings to add to their current CPL. Regardless of program chosen, you will be expected to attend your course on a Full-Time Basis.

A quick glimpse at the programs we offer can be found after the application form.

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to [email protected].

Commercial Pilot Programs
Self-Paced: The self-paced program is only for flight training and does not provide a College diploma upon graduation.

Course lengths in the Self- Paced program vary depending on training required but typically students will complete their Private Pilot Licence and Commercial Pilot Licence within two years.

Program start dates for Self-Paced start every month for Private Pilot Licence. Those interested in converting their licence can also start at any time once valid study permit has been obtained.

College or IATPL program: If you are interested in the College or IATPL program, you will have to first apply for the College or IATPL program and if you are accepted, we will then guide you through the international study permit application process. Please keep in mind that you will have to apply in January or February. Unfortunately, international applicants will not be accepted for 2024.
