Indian Students - Study at Spectrum Airways!
Where are we located?
Spectrum Airways is located at Burlington Executive Airport in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We are approximately 30 minutes West of Toronto.
How long will this take, and what will it cost?
At Spectrum Airways, our students make up their own flying and study schedule. We are open 7 days a week from 8:00-23:00. Everyone works and learns at different rates. Some students will come to us with no aviation experience, while others will come to us with a great deal of aviation experience. Therefore, it is impossible to give a standard quote for everyone. Realistically, you can expect to complete your training within a year to a year and a half. Although, it will depend upon weather and student skill/preparation level.
Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org for an individual quote.
**Please include any specific information we may need, such as any licences/ratings held, or any prior aviation experience**
This process should be started as soon as possible. The application must be completed EXACTLY as they require, or it may not be accepted. It is recommended you allow at least two months for the application process prior to your proposed start date at Spectrum Airways. You must show that you have adequate monetary funds available to you to pay tuition fees, maintain yourself and dependants who go to Canada and to pay return transportation costs without engaging in employment in Canada. We will provide you with a letter of acceptance to Spectrum Airways, which you will need for the Visa application process. You should check with your nearby Canadian visa or immigration office for further details ( www.dfait-maeci.gc.ca/world/embassies/menu-en.asp ).

What programs do we offer?
Spectrum Airways offers the following programs:
- Canadian PPL (Private Pilot Licence)

- Canadian Multi Rating (in a Piper Seneca – PA-34)
- Canadian Single IFR (in a Cessna 172 – C-172)

When can I start my program?
As mentioned, Spectrum Airways has very flexible hours. You are welcome to start your flight training as soon as you get your Student Visa and are in Canada. We recommend you contact us 2-3 weeks prior to arriving in Canada so that we can start booking your lessons.
Payment is always pay-as-you-go. This means – every time you fly, you pay! There is no upfront cost, other than the cost of the ground school.
At Spectrum Airways, we have 7 Cessna 152’s, 7 Cessna 172’s and two Piper Seneca’s. Note that the DGCA recognizes all of these aircraft for the Indian Licence conversion. Do not get tricked into thinking that a Cessna 150, or a Piper Seminole is the same. The DGCA will NOT recognize those other aircraft. Please visit the DGCA website for further information (www.dgca.nic.in).
Radio Telephony Licence
We offer the test for the Radio Telephony licence on-site.
You must have a good grasp of the English language, meaning you must be able to speak, read and write in English.
