Online Commercial Pilot Ground School
Commercial Pilot Ground School
Taught by experienced active commercial pilots, airline pilots, and flight instructors, this Commercial Pilot Ground School will fulfill the Transport Canada ground school requirements for the issuance of a Commercial Pilot License and prepare students to challenge the Transport Canada CPAER Exam.
The experienced instructors actively work in the commercial aviation industry and teach what you need to know to be a successful and safe commercial pilot. This is not your PPL ground school done all over again. The instructors will teach you to approach the material differently and from a new and elevated perspective which will ensure a smooth transition into your first job.
A record of ground school is provided to all students. Students who achieve high marks on their final exams also qualify to receive a letter of recommendation to challenge the Transport Canada CPAER Exam. Students will also be issued an electronic T2202 form for tax purposes.
The ground school is accepted for licensing by Transport Canada and by all flight schools in Canada. It can be done at your own pace and on any device where an internet connection exists. From St. John’s in Newfoundland to the beaches of the Gold Coast, students from all over the world choose to train with the Canadian Flight Trainers Ground School.
Students enrolled in the ground school will experience content in a practical way which extends beyond the traditionally costly in-person ground school. Our team of pilots are all licensed as commercial or airline pilots and have the experience to apply theory to practice in commercial aviation – an often-neglected part of other boring online courses.
Ground school videos are unique to the CPL student, accessible, engaging, and incorporate the latest in 21st century learning technology and delivery to provide you an opportunity to achieve deep learning and reflect on your student pilot journey up to this point.
Don’t feel alone in your journey of online training! All students have access to our team of highly experienced professionals via phone call, email, or text message. Have a question? Just pick up the phone and call or email us! All included as part of your ground school experience.
