The Four Owners

A unique team

We are all major airline pilots with over 75,000 hours combined, and are passionate about contributing to the aviation community in Canada and beyond. We have a comprehensive understanding of the industry. This understanding enables us to offer leading edge training and guidance for our instructor pilots, our student pilots and our renting pilots. We are keen to actively support the success of our student professional pilots and our recreational pilots. 

Our commitment is to offer flight training excellence where safety comes first.  

As a unique team with vast operational flying experience, we offer what few other flying schools can:

  • Career mentorship and guidance for our flight instructors. We put high value on our instructors having an above and beyond, operational perspective. Professional development seminars are offered to our pilots so the training they deliver is superior in quality and structured to highest standards. 
  • Career mentorship and guidance for our students. There are many choices to make as a new professional pilot and we understand this fully. We take pride in guiding our graduates in the right direction, coupling the students’ aspirations with the many job opportunities. We understand what it takes to make it in this rewarding business and we commit to prioritizing job placement for all our graduating students. 
  • Offer the best value in flight training. We understand that not everyone desires to be a commercial pilot. If your aspiration is to get a pilot license to casually rent an aircraft or fly your own aircraft, the benefits are the same. Our professional instructors are always eager to go above and beyond for every student. 

We look forward to meeting you and discussing your plan to become a pilot!
