What prerequisites do I need in order to join the Professional Pilot program?

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.

Note that 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.
