Advanced Ultralight Aircraft Training Process
At Golden Horseshoe Advanced Ultralights, the cost for the entire approximately 2.5 hours instructional lesson is $229 including all taxes.
The total duration of each lesson is approximately 2.5 hours which includes:
- A 45-60 minute Preparatory Ground Instruction on the pertaining training excercise.
- A 10 minute preflight discussion (reviewing what will happen during the flight).
- A one hour in-flight lesson.
- A 10 minute post-flight discussion (reflecting what occurred during the flight).
It is recognized that in order for the student to be successful, lessons are modified to meet the individual learning needs and style of the student. As a result, each lesson may slightly vary in length. It is believed that often the best flight instruction occurs during preflight and postflight briefings, when the student has opportunities to ask questions and/or request clarifications about their flight activities and experiences.
There are minimum hours of training required by Transport Canada for the ultralight permit. However, these numbers tend to average higher due to many factors such as, but not limited to, training schedule/availability of each student, conditions of the weather, and airplane maintenance.
