Choose Between Two Options
- C$199 for at 60–90 minute pilot-for-a-day experience for one person (C$460 value)
- C$450 for private pilot license program with a 30-minute intro flight and 40-hours of ground school classes (C$939 value)
During the pilot-for-a-day experience, 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.
Before entering the private pilot license program, students must complete a medical exam with an approved Transport Canada medical examiner. To earn their license, they must pass both a written examination and a flight test.
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.
