Flight Training

A minimum of 45 hours of flight time must be acquired. This flight time consists of a minimum of 17 hours DUAL and 12 hours SOLO flight time. The remainder of this time is completed under the supervision of your flight instructor. During this training, you will gain experience on pre-flight inspection, aircraft ground handling, emergency procedures, take-off, landing, radio procedures, cross country navigation, instrument, and other related exercises. The prerequisite for this program is the Category III Medical administered by a Transport Canada authorized medical examiner, and the minimum age to obtain this license is 17 years. These lessons will train you for your flight test, which is conducted here at Spectrum Airways. Call to start training with us today!

Ground School

A minimum of 40 hours of ground school sessions is required. Our comprehensive ground school course consists of 16 sessions, taking 3 hours per session, and is held in the classroom facilities at the airport. Ground School is not a prerequisite for flight training; however, it is recommended to do both at the same time, if you can. It will provide a better understanding of the flight theory and allow you to practise in the air, what you are learning in the classroom. This Power Point course will help you to learn everything that is required for your written test.


A Transport Canada Flight Test and Written Examination are required. The Flight Test is administered by a Transport Canada examiner. The written examination is conducted at a Transport Canada office.
