My Name is Daniele, I am Italian, and I am 29 years old. I decided to follow my lifelong dream to become a Pilot at Spectrum Airways Flight training and Career College.
From the moment I stepped inside the school I fell in love with the place. The people were phenomenal and they made a great first impression on me. They were friendly, likeable and always ready to answer my (countless) questions. I was welcomed and introduced to my discovery flight with no hassle and since then everything has been handled confidently and with ease by the professional instructors. It is easy to see how motivated and passionate they are about their job.
After have spending 10 years at sea working on cruise ships as a mechanical engineer, changing careers to follow my dream was not an easy choice. Despite this, Spectrum has provided me with everything I was looking for. They gave me the confidence I needed to take the leap towards a career change at this stage of my life and to crown my long dream of being an Aviator. Not only was I able to start flying as easily as advertised with no struggle, I am now preparing for my flight test and soon I will be a proudly licensed Private Pilot. Not to mention, all of this has happened in less than 2 months since the day I signed up.
The school helped me to customize my training which allowed me to fly consistently over the last weeks. The management is knowledgeable and punctual, and the training is conducted to a high standard of safety. It truly is a pleasure to work in such a safe and secure environment, with aircraft that are clean and well maintained.
Spectrum is where I'll build my future in Aviation.

It's a fun, yet professional environment, and I enjoy the heck out of flying the diverse fleet at Spectrum Airways.

Learning a skill like flying requires a very special rapport with someone who has patience and challenges you to your limits. This makes you a better pilot and improves your character as a person. Spectrum Airways provided these people to me and as a result I feel fully qualified and confident taking to the skies.

My daughter and I began our experience at Spectrum Airways a number of years ago. What a difference 30 minutes made. We both took their intro flight and were sold that this is where we needed to learn how to fly. We immediately started our flight training here at Spectrum Airways in Burlington even though we live in West Mississauga. It was worth the drive. The professionalism and wealth of knowledge from the staff and Instructors was a tremendous benefit in throughout our training. Shortly after we started our training we purchased a Cessna 172, with the advice from many of the staff and instructors at Spectrum. The Instructors immediately immersed themselves in learning our aircraft to become excellent airmen on this aircraft as well. I cannot say enough about the staff, instructors and mechanics at Spectrum Airways and Kovachik Aircraft Services. Professional, top of the line instruction as well as expert and complete maintenance services. I won't and will not go anywhere else but Spectrum/Kovachik Aircraft Services for my flight instruction and maintenance needs. Highly recommended.

BP Imaging has flown with Spectrum Airways for more than 20 years taking high quality aerial photographs throughout Southern Ontario. The Staff and Pilots are great to work with and always do their best to accommodate our schedule and ensure that all of our needs are met. I would highly recommend Spectrum for your next photo flight!

I always dreamed of flying but could never imagine myself doing it until I met the folks at Spectrum Airways. They showed me that it was possible, affordable and safe and that someone like me who had never even been in a small plane could get their pilot's license. I have a private, multi-engine and at one time a multi-engine IFR rating all attained through Spectrum Airways. If you've ever wondered, "Can I actually be a pilot?" The answer is yes. And the place to begin that journey is Spectrum Airways!
