What you'll do
Retired former Vice President of the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association, I gave advice to thousands people, one common question was "What is required to own an aircraft?" In a classroom setting and in an aircraft hangar, you will learn about: Owning an aircraft • Suitable aircraft according to your budget & skills • Maintaining an aircraft airworthy Building a kit aircraft • Associations & Groups of aircraft builders • Choosing an aircraft to build • Maintaining a kit built airworthy Introduction of • Theory of flight • Check lists, Weight & Balance calculation, Required documents • Aircraft walk around & Pre-Flight inspection Aircraft tourism • How to have a fun time flying an aircraft • How to encourage your spouse to enjoy flying • Tips & Thrills In the hangar, we will remove cowlings and inspection covers so that you can have a hands on experience of the guts and the secret inner workings of an aircraft. All in a fun relaxed ambiance you will discover how easy and simple an aircraft can be. Meet other aircraft owners, get all your questions answered to take an informed decision of ownership or just live a unique experience "the passion of aviation!"
I have been flying small aircraft for 46 years and have flown numerous times from Montreal to the Bahamas and abroad since the age of 19 years old. Also as a commercial pilot and instructor I have shared my passion with thousands of people, at airshows or fly-ins, many people will come up to me and tell me, I introduced or taught them flying and are very grateful ever since. I also assembled, built and owned 89 aircraft, from simple ultralight to high performance aircraft! My longest trip was a cross country of 10,000 kilometers, 24 days flying across the most beautiful sceneries in America.
