I’m very busy; can I still do the training?

Yes, we have enough instructors and aircraft to allow you to fly according to your schedule. Unfortunately, if you can only spend one or less days a week, you will be spending several minutes per flight just reviewing past lessons. As a result, you can expect your license to take significantly longer, and cost a little more as well.

How long does it take to finish the Private Pilot’s License program at Professional Flight Centre?

This depends entirely on the student. Most people will obtain the license by about 60 hours flight time. Transport Canada requires a minimum 45 hours flight time. Some students, however, may take longer to complete the course.

  • The main factor affecting hours and time to complete the course is the frequency you can fly. Ideally, if you can fly 3 to 5 times a week, you will spend minimal time every flight doing review and therefore minimize your time spent in the air. This will also minimize the cost of your license of course. Usually full-time students (3 – 5 flights a week) can finish the Private Pilot course in 8 to 12 weeks.
  • If you can only fly once or twice a week, you can expect to spend significant portions of each flight doing review and practice of skills from previous lessons. Flying part time like this can take 6 months to a year to finish the course.
