A small plane whisks passengers up from the Carp Airport and ferries them toward downtown Ottawa or the Gatineau Hills for 23 minutes of airtime. Along the way, the pilot points out landmarks as they float past below. Customers who purchase the two-person option can add a third passenger for an additional fee of $89.
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.
