The Commercial Pilot License is an official and internationally recognized license. The Commercial Pilot License is the next step for those wishing to fly for a career. After completion of your Commercial Pilot License, you will be able to fly all Canadian registered, single engine, land, non high performance aircraft for hire.

In order to begin the Commercial license you must have completed your Private Pilot license. The next step is enrolling in a commercial ground school course. We offer this course in the evenings twice per week and are currently working on an online option for those unable to attend in classroom courses.

Course Information

The ground school is broken into the same 4 categories as the private;

  • Air Law
  • General Knowledge
  • Meteorology
  • Navigation

At the commercial level we will be going into more detail and have a lot more homework for self study as well as a group project.

We offer a variety of payment methods, such as a pay as you go style or you can pay a lump sum upfront and it will be deducted as you progress through your training.

While in your commercial ground school you will need to be increasing your flight hours by doing some time building and perhaps working to increase your skills by adding on additional ratings such as Night, Multi-Engine and Instrument Ratings.
