Flight Instructor Rating

Do you have a passion for flying? Do you enjoy helping others realize their dreams? Would you like the opportunity to give back knowledge that you have acquired? Then become a flight instructor and know your material inside out. Teach those who want to fly – either as a great hobby or rewarding career. The Instructor Rating program was reviewed and approved by the registrar of the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills & Training.

If you hold at least a valid Commercial Pilot Licence (Aeroplane Category) and have acquired not less than 20 hours instrument time, then you are ready to go! Flight instruction is given in Cessna 152 or in the newer Cessna 172R. You will complete a minimum of 25 hours of Instructor Rating Ground School and 30 hours of dual flight instruction, all with a Class One Flight Instructor.

Training costs reflect Transport Canada minimum training times and the program follows Canadian Aviation Regulation guidelines. There are no membership fees at Montair. Further information on Transport Canada licensing and experience requirements can be found on the relevant section of the Canadian Aviation Regulations, available online here.
