Canadian Flight Academy
Canadian Flight Academy's seven master instructors train students of all skill levels on the complexities of fixed-wing flight inside one of four types of aircraft such as a Cessna or Piper Cherokee. Pilots are born from the 52-hour ground school, which covers everything from meteorology to air law. In addition to teaching basic flight lessons, the instructors impart their knowledge in more advance topics such as instrument ratings, multi-engine ratings, airline transport, and what to do when an eagle falls in love with your plane. Six licensed mechanics combine their 65 combined years of experience when tending to aircraft with their maintenance services, and online planning references help captains prepare for take offs.
