FAQ

Questions?

Most of our commonly asked questions are outlined below.

Should you now find what you are looking for, feel free to contact us directly and we will be more than happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have!

1) When are the courses?
We have 2 courses per year, the spring course runs from early March until the end of June, the fall course runs from early October until the end of February.

2) How many students per class?
We have only 6-8 students per class, with not more than 3-4 students per instructor. This maximizes individual attention for each student.

3) Where is the ground schooling?
The ground schooling takes place in our on site classroom at the Kelowna International Airport.

4) What are the requirements to start the course?
You must have completed high school or be a minimum age of 19. You must pass the appropriate aviation medical examination. We also conduct individual interviews in person, or via the phone when distance is an issue, to determine an applicant’s suitability to the program. There are no special courses required prior to the start of training, and you don’t need prior flight training experience.

5) What are your payment structures for the course?
There is a $2000.00 deposit paid upon acceptance, with the balance owing divided up over 4 or 5 monthly payments (depending on the course enrolled in). There are no applicable taxes, and the commercial helicopter pilot courses are tax deductible as education. Please see our fees page for a breakdown.
