The Rockcliffe Flying Club is a Transport Canada registered Flight Training Unit. The size of our school ensures that a flight training program can be tailored to meet the requirements of the individual student. To sign up for a particular training, please contact RFC Dispatch for more information.

This section contains documents, videos and links to information for pilots engaged in flight training at the RFC.

This flight training is for a Private Pilot License, the holder of which may act as pilot-in-command or co-pilot of an aeroplane of a class and type in respect of which the licence is endorsed with ratings and pilot-in-command of an ultra-light aeroplane. PPL may be endorsed with Night, VFR OTT, instrument ratings, and different aeroplane class ratings.

This flight training is for a Recreational Pilot Permit, the holder of which may be pilot-in-command of single engine non-high-performance aeroplanes, designed to carry no more than 4 persons, and can carry a maximum of 1 passenger under day VFR only. RPP holders can be PIC of an ultra-light aeroplane, and can obtain a float rating.

This flight training is for a night rating, the holder of which may exercise the privileges of the permit or licence by night. For example, a Private Pilot License - Aeroplane holder with a night rating may fly under VFR conditions at night.

This rating allows the holder to fly with visual reference to a layer of cloud instead of the earth's surface. It can be applied to a Private Pilot Licence: the privilege to fly VFR OTT will be given automatically to anyone who holds a Commercial Pilot Licence or an Instrument Rating.

This flight training is to obtain an instrument rating, which allows a private or commercial pilot license holder to fly into Instrument Meteorological Conditions i.e. cloud and visibility less than VFR. An instrument rating is required for a commercial pilot to be PIC of a commercial flight carrying passengers at night. An instrument rating includes VFR OTT rating.

This flight training is for the Commercial Pilot License, the holder of which can be pilot-in-command of an aeroplane, in commercial service, of a class and type in respect of which the licence is endorsed and if the minimum flight crew document for the aeroplane specifies a minimum flight crew of one pilot, or co-pilot of other aircraft.
This flight training is for an Instructor Rating, allowing the holder of a commercial pilot license holder to conduct flight training for the issue of a Private Pilot License (PPL), Night Rating, Recreational Pilot Permit (RPP), and a Commercial Pilot License (CPL). A Commercial Pilot License is required for an Instructor Rating.
Canada is a world of lakes, rivers, channels, sounds, inlets, bays, reaches, bights, harbours, arms, and whatever else is used to name a body of water. The seaplane rating is intended for the pilot who already holds a licence, ideally someone who is relatively current.
