First solo

The first solo flight is the most important part of your training, it is the one you will remember throughout your pilot's life. For many pilots it is the consecration of a dream.

To do this you have to be psychologically and technically prepared. You need the "Radiotelephone Operator's Restricted Certificate" and the "Student pilot permit". Click on "Student pilot" and follow the steps as indicated.

Ground school

You may start your training by attending the ground school. It is a 45 hours curriculum with a schedule of 3 hours per evening, twice a week.

The ground school covers different subjects such as: engines and systems, weather, navigation, air regulations and several others.

These courses are presented with the aid of a multimedia projector which makes them achievable by all, regardless of the students' level of knowledge. The ground course leads to Transport Canada for a written exam which passing mark is 60%, but it is mandatory to have at least 10 hours of flight with an instructor in order to be accepted to take the exam

Flight lessons

The flight training follows your own pace. You can start as soon as you wish and it's not necessary to complete the ground school to start the flight lessons. To get your private licence, 45 hours of flight are required and 25 hours for the recreational permit.

These hours are divided into two parts: first of which is training with an instructor and then training solo.

The airplane rental fees as well as the instructor fees can be paid gradually as you progress along your training.

St-Hubert is a controlled airport with a tower and equipped with a precision instrument approach for commercial flights. You will fly in a professional environment and whatever the winter weather, a runway is always cleared to allow commercial traffic to leave or return to St-Hubert anytime. The flight school benefits from this freedom of action to fly all year round.
