Flight Instructor Rating

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.

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.

Instrument Rating

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.

Multi-Engine Rating

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.

Private 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 Integrated CPL Program.

Night & VFR OTT Rating

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.

Recreational Pilot Permit

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.
