The aim of ground school is to help you understand all the theoretical information that goes along with a pilot’s licence. Ground school covers all of the required knowledge to pass the final Transport Canada written examination. The ground school covers all required areas including air law, airspace, engines and airframes, meteorology, navigation, flight operations, flight instruments and human factors.

Once registered, you have access to our ongoing ground school classes to take any classes missed or any classes that you want a refresher on until you have passed the Transport Canada written examination (PPAER). You can start your ground school on most of the dates below and then attend any of the missed classes on the next ground school. Please contact us for more details!
