All stages of flight training are conducted in Canada to a very high standard by an accredited flight academy. After the completion of the flight training phase, all students will be offered an opportunity to apply for the internship phase in order to work as flight instructors, which, in turn, will give them an opportunity to build additional flight time.

After pilots achieve 1000-1500 hours of total flight time, students will be able to obtain their CAA (ICAO-Canada) ATPL and apply for either airline pilot or ferry pilot internships. At the last stage, graduates will be provided permanent airline employment placement assistance service by our company with such airlines as Air India, IndiGo, Fly Dubai, Emirates, Qatar, Cathay Pacific, Air Asia, Lion Air, Singapore Airlines, Air China, Chinese Airlines, Air Hong Kong, Malaysian Airlines, Jet Star, Tiger Air and many more.
