Instructor Rating Program - Duration & Cost

Each Student Pilot is able to determine their own pace, so that your Pilot Training fits your schedule and your financial plan.

It is recommended that you commit to a full-time training schedule, as this rating may be the last step before you begin to earn money as a Pilot.

Upon completion of your Instructor Rating, you may apply to Aurora Aviation Academy as a Class 4 Instructor Pilot. We select the best candidates from our program, to join our Team, under the Supervision and Mentoring of our more senior Flying Instructors.

This is an excellent way to get paid to fly, while building your flight time and experience, whereby each flight brings you one step closer to qualifying for a position with a Commercial Air Operator or Airline.

The Total Cost of your Instructor Rating is estimated to be $9,900 CAD.

We will do our best to advise & support you along the way, so that you can optimize your training experience.
