OUR LOCATION: REC & CAREER MINDED

Our Flight Training is currently offered at the Provincial Airways Main Building, Moose Jaw Municipal Airport (North East of  Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada)

Our location provides our students to complete cross countries trips to the Southwestern areas of SK and AB, or once you’re licenced, simply anywhere pre-approved! One of our favorite quotes: “A mile of highway will take you a mile. A mile of runway will take you anywhere”!

As we are located within uncontrolled airspace, it allows our students to prevent waiting in line to taxi or take off for long periods of time in line and a direct, easy short trip from the airport to your “practice area”! Due to our proximity to Regina International Airport, we also can offer many opportunities for our students (recreational and career minded) to practice their skills in a controlled airspace environment.

OUR TEACHING

Students Come First!

We are committed to providing exceptional instruction … lets start the adventure of a lifetime!

Whether you going up for your first flight, training towards a licence or are a commercial pilot looking for a checkout, expect exceptional instruction and safety!

Our committed to provide our students with the tools to:

  1. Foster Superior Safety Decisions
  2. Retain and Fly Current Transport Canada Standards and Best Practices
  3. Become Better Pilots “Make your Lesson Worth It!”
    • Prepare properly.
    • Understand What you are learning/Why you’re learning it
    • Practice How to Fly Correctly
    • Receive Instruction with Your Learning Style and Pace

“A Pilots licence is a licence to learn!”

Preparing Properly: Learning is best completed on the ground and practiced in the air.

We recognise that students learn in a variety of ways, flight training is expensive and your time is precious. In order to practice in air as much as possible we want ensure you understand your training prior to getting in the airplane!

 

To “Make the Most” out of your flight lessons we have created a lesson prep kit for our students

  1. Provincial Airways Student Lesson Prep Kit: Student Outline, Air Exercise Prep
    • To provide an opportunity to understand your lesson prior to your lesson, you will receive your student lesson kit to prepare you for each new air exercise prior to each flight. These PowerPoints, Tips and Cool Handouts provide the content your instructor will teach, additional tips, clarify content from your Transport Canada readings. We find this really helps understand content prior to the airplane. This is provided via our website under “Current Students”, a USB stick with your Student Book Kit, and in addition to your books and supplies.
    • Student Outline: Understand what Licencing Requirements and training parameters are expected and required.

Step #4: Compare the Financial Costs!

Across Canada most lesson rates and fees are based on the type of aircraft equipment. At Provincial Airways we’ve tried to keep our rates competitive even with our equipment upgrades.

Step #5: Choose Your Flight School!

Make your choice! Our team at Provincial Airways would love to assist your aviation journey, but remember, you need to start the adventure that is right for you, your schedule, your career and your family!
