Montair is one of only a select number of flight schools around the world to receive approval from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) to train future Chinese airline pilots. We also have authorization from Transport Canada to deliver Integrated ATPL courses, the highest level of professional training course available in Canada. Currently, only 11 schools in the country have this ability and Montair is the only school in British Columbia to obtain this credential.

Montair is also designated by B.C. Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) under the B.C Ministry of Advanced Education and has Education Quality Assurance (EQA) designation from the Province of British Columbia.
