GFT's Career Progression Program is designed specifically for students at GFT. This program provides you, the student, an opportunity to advance directly to an airline or charter/medevac operation.
This program integrates the Private and Commercial Pilot Licences, the Multi-Engine and Instrument Ratings into one comprehensive training program. A higher standard was introduced with more overall structure, ground school, and simulator training.
Becoming a Flight Instructor will provide an opportunity for rewards beyond just employment. Many pilots will attest that the wealth of knowledge and skills acquired as a Flight Instructor will be a great asset to any aviation career. Airlines often hire pilots with flight instructor experience with the aim of advancing them into company training positions. This rating may be obtained upon completion of a Commercial Pilot Licence.
Do you wish your car had wings? A Private Pilot Licence (PPL) can offer you the freedom, flexibility, and independence to control your own travel, whether for business or pleasure. It is more comprehensive and less restrictive than the Recreational Pilot Permit. The PPL is a prerequisite for the Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL), and is therefore included in the GFT Integrated Pilot Program.
Most airline companies operate aircraft in operations that require the Instrument Rating. This rating enables pilots to fly aircraft in poor weather conditions where instrument reference is required. GFT offers a Recurrent Instrument Training Program for those pilots that require renewal or have let their instrument rating lapse. A Professional Training Program is available for initial candidates, as well as an accelerated program designed for a quicker pace. This Rating is also part of the GFT Integrated Program.
The Multi-Engine Rating will allow you to fly an aircraft with two or more engines. This Rating is part of the GFT Integrated Pilot Licence, and may be combined with the modular Commercial Pilot Licence. The Multi-Engine Rating is required for most aviation careers.

The Night Rating allows the pilot to fly at night in visual weather conditions. The VFR Over-The-Top Rating allows the pilot to fly over the top of a layer of cloud (without visual reference to the ground) as long as prescribed weather criteria are met. Both Ratings are included with the Commercial Pilot Licence. However, the Private Pilot may decide to add these ratings to expand licence privileges.
The Recreational Pilot Permit (RPP) is the most economical means for someone to enjoy the thrills of flying for recreational purposes. If purchasing an aircraft for recreation is in your future, this permit is a quick and easy way to get started. It can also be used as a step to becoming a Private Pilot. A Seaplane Rating may also be added to the RPP.
Do you dream of flying an airplane but not yet old enough to drive a car? Do you want an exhilarating summer experience that will give you a memory to last a lifetime? GFT Aerospace College has the program for you. Our Summer Wings Camp will give you the exposure to know if becoming a pilot is in your future. This one or two week summer flight program is jam-packed with excitement and activities that will give you lots to talk about as you head back to school in the fall. This program introduces the exciting world of aviation through classroom and flight training, aviation-related tours and activities. All training completed may be credited towards future aviation licences.
