NOTES:

1) Recreational Pilot Permit restricts the holder to operating an aircraft with a maximum of four seats, to carry only one (1) passenger and fly during daylight hours within Canada.

2) The total cost does not have to be paid up front and can be paid “as you go”.  Prices do not include applicable taxes.  Each student progresses at a different rate.  Thus, total times required to obtain the Recreational Pilot Permit will vary.
