TP14453E - Study guide for ultra-light pilot permit
Focus Sport Aviation offers comprehensive flight and ground instruction for your ultralight pilot permit. For everyone interested in becoming a pilot, the UL permit is the first step to start building your experience for a career in aviation or to pursue flying only as a hobby. The ultralight pilot permit can be completed in as little as two weeks for the committed student, or as long as you want, for those who wish a more leisurely program.
To earn your UL pilot permit, you must be a Canadian Citizen or a landed immigrant. You may commence flight training at any age but a student must be a minimum of 14 years of age prior to the first solo and 16 years of age prior to the issuance of the Ultralight Pilot Permit. A Transport Canada category 4 medical is also required prior to the written exam or first solo flight.
Each student must complete the 30 hours ground school that will cover various subject areas. Upon successful completion of the preparatory exam at Focus Sport Aviation, you will be recommended to undertake the Transport Canada written exam.
Ground & flight training can be taken one after the other but it is better at the same time because the flight training will provide a practical prospective to classroom theory. The flight training program is carefully designed and monitored by the instructors to allow each student to progress through the flight training exercises at their own pace.
The flight training program is provided by Gina Tremblay and Gerry de Grosbois.
Gina is ultralight instructor and authorized person at Transport Canada to deliver the student pilot permit. She is also assigned by Industry Canada delegated examiner for the Radio Telephone Operator's Restrited Certificate.
Gerry is a 2000 hour flight instructor and a Transport Canada pilot examiner for the carrying passenger rating.
