IFR training in Ontario

Recommended Posts

I have been doing some research to prep for doing an IFR rating this fall and was just wondering if anyone has some leads on IFR training units in Ontario. Seems like a lot of flight schools that advertise do not actually have IFR aircraft/instructors available. 

I will be doing 90% of my training the fixed wing route but am just looking to finish off the 5 hours and flight test with a helicopter. Any tips/suggestions would be helpful. 

Would prefer something local if possible but would be willing to travel if necessary. 

Thanks in advance.

If it is in your area, try Great Lakes Helicopter in Waterloo. I got mine thru them. They also provide accommodation if you require it. All the best with your IFR training!

I went through Chinook in Abbotsford B.C. for my IFR and would not recommend them. There was ZERO ground school training. They teach you the bare minimum to pass your check ride and that is all. I was shocked! I wonder if other schools are similar.

The Chinook puppy mill. The leave there and have never fuelled from a drum or even seen winter covers. Not surprised that they don’t do much on the IFR side. Kids disappointing really, they have potential to be so much more.
