This course is designed for the career oriented individual with a focus on advanced training and a seamless course outline. You will start from zero flight time to becoming a fully Licensed Commercial Pilot with a Night Rating, VFR OTT, and a Multi-Engine Instrument Rating (MIFR). You will be trained in our C152 for basic maneuvers and moving up to the C172 and C172RG for advanced training which leads you to the Multi-Engine training in the C310. This course is designed to parallel the Saskatchewan Polytechnic Pilot Diploma Program which, after approximately one year and a half, has you very prepared to startworking for one of the many operators we have close contact with. In fact, the majority of our grads are hired prior to graduation!
A minimum of 200 hours are required to obtain a CPL. The Professional Pilot Course includes the Multi-Engine IFR as part of the 200 hours after the CPL flight training is complete. The CPL and IR required ground school is included in the Sask Polytech Pilot Diploma Program.
This course meets all of the flying experience requirements of the Sask Polytech Pilot Diploma Program. The timeline for the Diploma Program is available here. This course is available to anyone who wishes to become a CPL with more advanced skills. Completing the course as described below will set you up to be highly competitive in the piloting workforce. Outside of Sask Polytech, a timeline of 6-8 months of full-time study will be required.
