GPS 1-DAY (GNS430)
Pro IFR - Delta
GPS Seminar


This seminar covers everything you wanted to know about flying IFR flying but were afraid to ask. Basically we throw IFR in the middle of the floor on Friday at 1100 hours and over three days put it together into a level that everybody understands. Practical examples give this course “depth” and keep it interesting. It is definitely not boring and after attending, the Transport Canada Instrument Exam will be reduced to a “formality”. This course is enthusiastically taught every 28 days by John Montgomery. Students of Professional IFR are welcome to sit in again at no extra cost while you are on course.

The following is the subject matter that is covered in our IFR 3 Day Seminar. This seminar is designed for both fixed and rotary wing IFR candidates. Each topic is discussed in major detail so the candidate really learns the material and achieves the required theoretical knowledge base to successfully complete the IFR Written Exam.

Interested in a career as a professional pilot, but don't know where to start? You've come to the right place - Professional Flight Centre.

We are a progressive flight school located at Boundary Bay Airport in Delta, British Columbia, Canada and have been in operation since 1986. Our in-flight training is second to none, and we have gained Canada-wide and International recognition for quality in the process. See what current & past students have to say about our excellent flight training program!

We offer training for the Private Pilot License (PPL); Commercial Pilot License (CPL); Multi-Engine IFR Rating; ATPL License, Instructor Rating and the equivalent helicopter licenses.

The training is accomplished on our fleet of 23 aircraft including 4 Beechcraft Duchess twins, 1 Piper Seminole, 1 Robinson R22 helicopter and 17 single engine aircraft including Cessna 172's; Cessna 152's; Piper Warrior; and Citabria.

We also have an excellent reputation in commercial pilot training in Canada, supplying well disciplined, fundamentally sound, professional pilots to many operators in Canada and throughout the world.

Standardization of training and a first-rate ground school is the key to Professional Flight Centre's success. Much of this is due to training in accordance with our excellent flight training manuals that are simple, effective, and easy to read. They are designed to increase confidence and make pilot training an enjoyable experience.

We also offer comprehensive ground school and seminar programs for all licenses and ratings to ensure that the theoretical knowledge requirement is exceeded. If there is one word that describes the "Professional" experience, it has to be "Positive". We are extremely supportive and have a way of making learning fun and enjoyable!

If you are coming to train with us from outside a local area, you may be interested in our Student House. Our Farmhouse is just around the corner from our Boundary Bay Facility, either a 15 minute walk or 2 minute drive by car.

Professional Flight Centre is open seven days per week and the office is generally manned from 0800 to 1800 hours P.S.T. Our operational flying hours may extend beyond that if required.We are closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Years Day. We may operate on a limited basis on other Canadian Statutory Holidays.
