To begin the program, there are no prerequisites. To go solo, however, there are minimum age limits. Basically, you must be fourteen years old to fly solo. Some students start flight training at twelve or thirteen, and then fly solo on their fourteenth birthdays. There is no maximum age. If you are under 18 you will need a letter of permission from your parents. You will also need to pass an aviation medical exam. Click here for a list of examiners in the Vancouver area.

Professional Pilot Program includes PPL (Private Pilot License), CPL (Commercial Pilot License) and Multi-IFR Rating (Group 1 Instrument). Multi-IFR contains Multi-Engine Rating already. Both Night Rating and VFR-Over-The-Top (OTT) are included in CPL. The benefit of Professional Pilot Program is that the hours from Multi-IFR Rating count towards CPL’s 200 hours requirements. This way, students save both time and money by not having to fly extra hours for Multi-IFR Rating after completing CPL.

Note that according to Transport Canada, all professional pilot students must first obtain their Private Pilot License (PPL) before they can begin as Commercial Pilot License (CPL) students. The PPL is therefore the “prerequisite” to CPL.
