Lately I have been looking for a flying school in Canada to start my flying lessons with. I took an informative flight with a school called Aerotaxi
Now I am really looking forward to a loan from a bank. But I would like to get more info beofr on the rating.
Let's say I get my Commercial lisence, will I be able to work with that license or would I need an ATP license?
I ask that because the commercial license on one hand is much cheaper.
If I consider a loan I think 35,000$ CAN (Approx: 22,800$ US) would be sufficient.
Now I would like some advises on the price VS. hours and license they offer at this school
They offer 2 ab-initio programs which I will describe here.
The first one is called: Ab-initio to commercial pilot license, multi-engine and instrument flight rating.
is divided as it follows:
- 14 Dual hours on single-engine aircrafts
- 100 Solo hours on single-engine aircrafts
- 30 Dual hours on multi-engine aircrafts
- 4 Solo hours on multi-engine aircrafts
- 15 Simulator flight hours
They total 237 ground school hours and 214 flight hours. I don't get it how they arrived to this total but I will ask them more deeply next time.
This program comes to a total of 33 584,48 $ CAN (approx: 22,000$ US) full infos on the porgram can be found at http://www.aerotaxi.ca/Html/abinifra.html
The second program is called Ab-initio to commercial pilot license and class IV flight instructor rating and it is divided as follows:
- 95 Dual hours on single-engine aircrafts
- 135 Solo hours on single-engine aircrafts
For a total of 138 ground school hours and 232 flight hours
And this one cost 31 081,62$ CAN (Approx: 20,300$ US)
Full infos on this program is at http://www.aerotaxi.ca/Html/abiniinsta.html
I think if my loan is granted the first one is a better choice, but I wanted to ask you guys first what you though of it.
The programs are fully detailed in the webpages I put down here. If you care to check it will give you an idea of what is included.
Please help me decide
Thank you to all of you
Have a great evening
