Mountain Check-Out

Mountain flying can be exhilarating, but it also brings the need for extra caution. Before flying out to the mountains, book a ground briefing with an Instructor to go over all the important aspects of flying around the Rockies.

Additionally, the CFC requires you to book a 1-hour session in the simulator and up to 4 hours of flying time with an instructor. These sessions will ensure that you have all the necessary knowledge to keep you and your passengers safe.

Tailwheel Check Out

Tailwheel flying is a great way to continue developing your flying skills after you get your PPL license, or even as part of your commercial training. It will instill great habits in the use of rudder and teach you to be straight and aligned with the centerline on takeoffs and landings. A great challenge when you feel like you have mastered the mighty Cessna 172.

There is no Transport Canada minimum requirement for a Tailwheel Check Out. To feel competent and fully prepared for solo Tailwheel flying, students typically require 15 – 25 hours of dual instruction and can expect to spend approximately $5,000.00.

Aerobatics

Aerobatics is not just for air show pilots. We can teach you basic aerobatics in the Citabria, which will also include aspects of upset recovery. Here we explore the edges of the plane’s performance envelope and learn how to deal with unexpected events like wake turbulence. Aerobatics training will get you working on precise aircraft control and let you experience what it feels like to transition through inverted flight.

If you have ever felt hesitant about stalls, spins, or steep turns this would be a great way to address those concerns and develop more confidence in aircraft control. Aerobatic training is offered to licensed pilots and can be tailored to specific needs and wishes. A full aerobatic sign off will typically consist of around 15 hours of flying and 8 hours of briefing time.
