What is the cost for ground school?

Feel free to visit us and sit in our ground school few times for NO CHARGE. Then if you like to register with us, the price for the private pilot ground school is $450.

For the Private Pilot License course, we offer two different ground school sessions: Monday through Thursday from 10:30-13:00 as well as Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 19:00-21:30. You can choose class to attend based on your personal schedule.

Our ground school runs in our facility at Boundary Bay Airport. It takes approximately three to six months to cycle through all the topics depending on which session you attend. The ground school is not cumulative, meaning that you can start at the beginning of any of the topics. If you miss a lesson, you can take it the next time around free of charge, or catch that lesson when the other ground school class does it. Such as, if you regularly attend evening ground school, you can sit in on daytime ground school when you feel the need to brush up on any of the topics!

The ground school is divided into several topics. These are:

  • Airframes and Systems
  • Flight Instruments
  • Aerodynamics and theory of flight
  • Flight operations
  • Canadian Air Regulations (CAR’s)
  • Meteorology
  • Pilot Decision Making
  • Navigation
