Southern Skies Aviation Ltd. offers a full range of courses and is accredited provincially with the Private Career Training Institutions Agency (PCTIA) under the provisions of the Education Act 1989 and its subsequent amendments.
We are an accredited Career College and offer aviation programs ranging from a Recreational Permit through to an Airline Transport license (ATPL). All of our flight instructors undergo rigorous training to ensure that our students receive the highest standard of training possible. Industry-experienced staff and a professional Pilot Advisory Board provide our students with an accurate perspective of the current trends in commercial aviation.
Transport Canada assigns the standard for flight licenses, endorsements and ratings, but it is essential to remember that these are the absolute minimum of performance and knowledge to which an applicant may be held.
"Thus any given certificate or rating is truly, as they have often been called - a license to learn".
(Howard Fried – Column Editor, Flying Magazine)
Intro to Flight is ideal for people who are interested in aviation and would like to know more about it, but may not be interested in becoming pilots. It is also intended to allow passengers of private aircraft to acquire some knowledge of general aviation and basic flying skills. The 5 hour ground school will offer practical knowledge of the airplane and flight procedures and these will be demonstrated in a 20 min. flight at the end of the day. Participants have found that it increases their confidence and enjoyment in the air by helping them to understand more about the experience of flying. The Intro to Flight Course is offered annually as part of Southern Skies Careers in Aviation program, as well as each Father's Day weekend. What a great gift idea! Contact Southern Skies Aviation Ltd. for details and application for enrollment.
