Commercial Pilot Licence

A Commercial Pilot Licence is what you need to improve your flying skills or to take the leap of starting a new and exciting career. Aviation is a dynamic industry that is currently experiencing tremendous growth. You will be challenged to achieve a professional level of technical knowledge and piloting skills. The program was reviewed and approved by the registrar of the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills & Training.

Flight instruction is given in a Cessna 152, Cessna 172P or on our newer Cessna 172S model. One of our staff or instructors will be happy to give you more details on both the flight training and the study material. Our comprehensive ground school is available – on line – with a flexible schedule for your convenience.

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.
