FLOAT PLANE RATING
Canadian Flyers offers professional instruction on many levels out of our school based at Buttonville and Orillia .
We offer float plane training at our Orilla base (click relevant menu items for more information)
Orillia (CNJ4) airport is uncontrolled with a UNICOM while Buttonville(CYKZ) is controlled
Training with us offers the best of both worlds as far as controlled and uncontrolled airspace is concerned.
You will be able to take advantage the facilities of both airports as part of your education.
Advantages for students for flying out of Buttonville:
Students will become familiar and confident with radio procedures when entering or leaving controlled airspace.
Students will become familiar and confident when comunicating with ground control when manouvering on the ground at a busy airport.
We have a large fleet of Cessna 172's available for rent or training. For our multi engine rating we use a Piper Seminole
We have our own simulator training centre providing full three axis motion. The centre is staffed by our own instructors and utilizes a Redbird FMX simulator
