Canadian Flight Trainers and the Flight School
Canadian Flight Trainers can help students enrolled in the flight programs at WWFC by offering a practical online ground school solution. A majority of students west of Toronto and almost as far north as Collingwood choose to train with WWFC. However, due to the remote location of a lot of these students, they are unable to attend any in-person ground schools. This is where Canadian flight Trainers can help.
Many of the students at WWFC choose to conduct their ground schools remotely as it saves them money and frees up their time travelling to and from the flight school. They’re able to complete their theoretical ground training from the comfort of their own homes while still participating in high quality online training.
All of our ground school material compliments all flight lessons that are taken at the flight school. Students are able to apply our knowledge to their buys training environment and earn their private pilot license with ease.
