Learn to Fly
Learning to fly is one of life’s most rewarding adventures. Whether you are considering learning to fly for recreation, or to pursue a career in aviation, you are about to embark on one of the most exciting & enjoyable experiences of your life.
A Recreational Pilot Permit allows you to fly a single engine aircraft and to bring a passenger with you, in daylight hours. This is the quickest and least expensive way to get you flying. You can use the Recreational permit to fly for business or pleasure, on short flights or long, any day anywhere in the country. Your Recreational Pilot Permit experience helps you build time towards the Private Pilot License.

Whether you want to fly recreationally or become a Commercial Pilot, the St. Thomas Flight Centre is big enough to serve you and small enough to care!
Obtaining a pilot licence consists of two parts: In-flight training helps you learn and understand the performance of your aircraft. Initial flight training is conducted dual, with an Instructor, until you have achieved a level of competency that allows you to practice solo. The length of time it takes you to reach this stage will depend on your ability and frequency of training. Ground school classes prepare you for the written exam. Classes are recommended for all potential pilots. The course material simplifies the theory of flight and explains topics as diverse as aircraft structure, engine operations, and how to interpret meteorological conditions. Other integral parts of the program include interpreting Canadian air law and developing navigational skills. Second Career training is specially designed to help laid-off Ontarians participate in long-term training for a new job and may be available to pilots who hold a Private Pilot Licence.
