AIRCRAFT RENTAL/CHECKOUT PROGRAM

If you are a licensed pilot and would like to rent our Diamond DA20 (2-seat) or DA40 (4-seat) aircraft, we are here to help. All DFC rental pilots are required to:

  • Complete a self-paced, open book checkout exam on the aircraft and its avionics
  • Complete the required in-flight checkout program with one of our qualified instructors
  • Fly at least 1 hour every 30 days to maintain rental currency if under 100 hours PIC
  • Fly at least 1 hour every 60 days to maintain rental currency if over 100 hours PIC
  • Adhere to our rental weather minima

Flying time to get checked out and cleared for rental varies from pilot to pilot due to the pilot's background knowledge of aircraft systems and avionics (i.e. glass cockpit experience) and skill level. Rental rates are as follows:

  • Diamond DA20 aircraft ($155 per hour plus HST) 
  • Diamond DA40 aircraft ($205 per hour plus HST)
     

Note:
If you are a licensed pilot and have not flown as Pilot-In-Command (PIC) of an aircraft for more than either 2 or 5 years, please click here for more information
