Select Aviation’s Private Pilot License Fixed Wing program is for individuals looking to fly small planes for personal use or recreation. A PPL is the first step towards becoming a licensed commercial pilot. Graduates can explore further options looking to start a career as a professional pilot. Private Pilot Licence – Fixed Wing training is a comprehensive program covering theoretical and practical aspects of flying airplanes. The training program typically consists of classroom, simulator, and in-flight instruction.

During the classroom instruction portion, students learn about the fundamentals of aviation, airplane systems, meteorology, navigation, aerodynamics, and other important topics related to flying. Simulator training is also required. This involves using advanced computer-based training devices that simulate real-world flying conditions, allowing students to practice various flight scenarios in a safe environment.

The in-flight instruction portion is the most critical component of the training program. It’s here where learners apply the lessons learned in the classroom and simulator in the real world.

Overall, pilot training can be an intense and challenging experience, but it is also highly rewarding. By the end of the program, graduates will have the skills and knowledge necessary to safely and confidently operate an airplane in various settings.

Training included

  • 51.5 hours of flight training on Cessna 150.
  • 8.5 hours of simulation.
  • 63.5 hours of preparatory flight instruction ground school.

The schedule is flexible according to the student’s availability. Intake is ongoing and students can enrol at anytime.

Select Aviation College has developed favourable financing options for students through Caisses Desjardins (Quebec and Ontario).

I completed my flight training at Select Aviation a few years ago, and I couldn't be more pleased with the overall experience. Over the years, I've witnessed their school's impressive growth, and they've recently unveiled state-of-the-art facilities in Gatineau/Ottawa, which truly showcase their commitment to excellence. I highly recommend taking the 360-degree virtual tour on Google Maps to explore their stunning new premises—it's a fantastic way to get a glimpse of their upgraded facilities!

Where do I start!
by far one of the coolest places to do your flight training in the country, I had the chance to visit and train at flight schools in the US and Canada and I can tell you from experience that Select Aviation is at it's own level!...

-Great fleet of airplanes, I dare you to find a better maintained fleet, these guys are on top of maintenance, they do most of it in-house and surely don't cut on cost, that means safer and better looking airplanes than most places I have seen.
-Great people culture, from the owners to the dispatchers you can tell that is a caring institution, always striving for improvement in the way they provide training, not only training, they want people to have a great experience during their time at the school, not only in but outside of campus, surely they are victims of their own success when it comes to finding student housing, every one wants to be part of a growing, successful institution!
-Opportunity for growth! where else in Canada can you go on to become a flight instructor and built your hours as fast as you can do it here? the industry is booming and the faster you get some experience the faster you can move on to the airlines.
-No, it is not a perfect school but surely they are on the path of becoming one of the best flight schools in North America, remember the formula for success:
Knowledge + Experience x Attitude= SUCCESS!
Attitude is a multiplying factor and these company has great attitude.
Don't just believe a random post on the internet, go see for yourself the thriving environment at Select Aviation
