The groundschool course covers the academic side of your training, and is intended to supply you with the knowledge required to pass the final written exam with Transport Canada. You will learn about navigation, meteorology, regulations, aircraft systems etc. The course takes place on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 9:30 in the classroom above the office. You should bring all of your books and materials to each class, as well as a notebook and pencil. The course lasts for about 60 hours, or about 20 weeks. You may start at any time during the course, and continue attending until you pass the final exam. For students from the communities or who are otherwise unable to attend the groundschool course, we will arrange a course of self-study that will satisfy the groundschool requirement. You may have to purchase additional books for this. Alternatively, there are several on-line groundschool courses available in Canada.
It is expected that you will be doing flight training and groundschool concurrently. Attending groundschool with the intention of doing flight training at a later date is not recommended.
