Private Pilot Licence

Being in sole command of an airplane and being able to fly to airfields around the Pacific Northwest is a great way to enhance your life. Whether it’s a couple of hours touring British Columbia’s Okanagan or atrip down to California with friends, the great memories will be cherished forever. Your Private Pilot Licence can be the start of a unique and exciting hobby or the initial step to a rewarding career! Flight instruction is given in a Cessna 152, or Cessna 172R.

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. If you haven’t yet experienced the magic of flight, why not let us take you up for a “familiarization flight” for as little as $89.00! 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. The program does not require approval by the registrar of the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills & Training.
