Choose from Three Options

  • C$199 for a pilot-for-a-day experience (C$460 value)

For 60–90 minutes, an instructor leads students through ground instruction, which gives a synopsis of a pilot’s duties and shows them how to handle calculations, determine fuel needs, and understand navigation systems. For the next 45 minutes, the pupils start the engine and take to the skies, twisting and turning until it is time to land.

  • C$359 for a 30-minute fighter-pilot experience (C$699 value)
  • C$659 for a 60-minute fighter-pilot experience (C$1,399 value)

Customers sit in the pilot's seat as a professional pilot takes the plane through a variety of intense dogfight manoeuvres, including a loop, a Cuban Eight, a barrel roll, an inverted spin, and flying upside down, among others.

International Pilot Academy

As a boy growing up in Beirut, Jules Selwan often dreamed of starting up the engines on a commercial plane and soaring above the coastal city. After obtaining his flight license, the pilot began to explore beyond his native country, landing at Carp Airport. In roaring Piper and Cessna aircraft, Selwan and his crew provide instruction in a range of areas and levels, including courses that culminate in recreational pilot permits or private pilot licenses. Students often travel from around the globe, and courses are available in English, French, German, Arabic, and Spanish, allowing new pilots to read all of the secret messages painted on peoples' rooftops.

Customer Reviews

A great experience overall. Staff were friendly and the pilot was fantastic! It was a great experience and a wonderful way to see the city from another vantage point. If you are a passenger on the plane, have a baggie nearby. I would recommend this activity.
