Participating Flight Schools





In 2009 Canada celebrated 100 years of powered flight, today we are atop the flight training world. Canada provides flight training and life experience that's second to none. Multicultural cities, an extensive flight training infrastructure and a vast geography highlight the long list of benefits found in Canada. We believe in our training, and we believe in training you. Starting from ab initio all the way up to multi crew and jet transition we've got it all. Cost effective training that can be found on our west coast, through out our prairie provinces and into the heart of our country. If you plan to become a professional pilot, come meet real Canadian flight school at one of our upcoming information sessions.

For 2017 ATAC will participate in two distinct missions. For the first mission, ATAC Flight Training Units will support a FlyCanada booth to promote to the fast emerging Chinese General Aviation market. The China Aircraft Operators and Pilots Association will co-host the 5th AOPA International Flight Training Exhibition Oct. 13-15th at the Shenzhen Convention Centre.

The second mission is the November 4th Pilot Careers Live Show in London. The largest event of the Pilot Careers Live exhibitions in Europe. It is the biggest opportunity to promote our programs and to provide the opportunity for Canadian companies to meet key air carriers and training organisations to discuss future partnerships. This mission will expand on our discussions with the regulator and introduce new participants to the EASA market for pilot training in Canada.

"Decision to come to Canada to do my Commercial Pilot Licence is the best decision I have taken and joining Harv's Air only added to it. I got excellent exposure to all aspects of flying that helps one to become a better and a safer pilot. With the excellent flight standards set by Transport Canada, Harv's Air has made an excellent effort in implementing them successfully. I had a very good experience at Harv's Air Service in Steinbach, Manitoba. Helpful instructors, friendly and encouraging training atmosphere added to my learning. Because of a strong base set by Harv's Air, it helped me a lot to successfully pursue my airline career." He now flies an A330 for Jet Airways

"It was early 2005 when I was doing my PPL in Hyderabad India. Due to a shortage of instructors and aircrafts, I started to look around for other options. That's when my friend Sandeep Cariappa who had just come back from Harv's Air in Canada suggested that I should go to Canada. I was in contact with Adam Penner for the letter for my Visa and he was very prompt. I had my Canadian Visa in no time! My first thought as I got to Harv's Air was "what I saw on the site was 100% correct". Harv's Air is like your home away from home. My first flight in the C-152 was awesome. Flying in Canada was just amazing. I took the area map and went to almost all the little airfields around. Harv's Air has a great way to book in your favorite aircraft online. The aircraft were always kept in great shape and I never had any problem for the 145 hrs I flew there. I would rate the Canadian CPL as one of the most respected in the world. Transport Canada were very good. Exams were on the computer and very practical. In terms of cost, it actually may work out the same or cheaper than India. I have recommended Harv's Air to many of my friends and a lot of us are flying for Jet Airways India on the Boeing 737NG's and the ATR 72-500's. Our experience with Harv's Air was just a dream and I would not mind doing the CPL all over again just to fly with Harv's Air".
