Take to the skies with Insignia College’s Commercial Pilot Program. Airlines are facing a global shortage of Pilots. The growing aviation industry means qualified pilots are in demand. There’s never been a better opportunity to build your career as a commercial pilot.
Our Commercial Pilot Program is one of the most innovative, highly-respected programs in Canada. When you graduate, you’ll have your Commercial Pilot Licence with a single-engine instrument rating.
The Commercial Pilot Diploma Program provides a strong foundation in the basic principles of aviation. You will attend ground school training sessions and flight training missions at our Boundary Bay Airport (CZBB) flying campus.
Commercial students take an average 24 months of flight training to finish the Transport Canada requirements which include the time required to obtain a Private Pilot Licence as well. Before qualifying for Commercial Pilot Diploma, students must complete their Private Pilot Licence and Commercial Pilot Licence.
A VFR Over-The-Top (VFR OTT) Rating allows you to fly VFR above a layer of cloud.
The beauty of flying above the clouds is surreal to experience, yet this rating has real practical benefits too like allowing you to fly over poor weather rather than through it.
1) Fifteen (15) hours instrument time, of which 5 hours may be instrument ground time; and
2) Reach the level of knowledge and skill specified in the Flight Instructor Guide – VFR Over-The-Top.
A Night Rating allows you to fly and carry passengers at night
Some of the most enjoyable and relaxing flying happens after the sun goes down. There is nothing like watching the sunset and the ground light-up with twinkling lights from above. A night rating is a great extension to the skills learned in obtaining a Private Licence and opens a door to a new set of possibilities.
