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 one hour every 30 days to maintain rental currency

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 and skill level. The average pilot can get checked out in the following amount of time:

  • Diamond DA20 aircraft ($155 per hour plus HST) in 2-3 hours of flying time
  • Diamond DA40 aircraft ($205 per hour plus HST) in 5-8 hours of flying time (depending on if it is a VFR or IFR checkout)

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
