In addition to Transport Canada approved license and permit training, the RFC offers additional types of aviation training to members to help further your flying skills.  For more information, and to sign up for a particular course, please contact RFC Dispatch.

The CoPilot course is designed for people who don't intend (at this point!) to get a pilot licence, but expect to fly often with a pilot and would like to know more about flying, to make the experience more pleasurable and to develop some skills that might be useful to their pilot during flights.  It is also appropriate for someone who doesn't have a pilot friend but would like to get more general knowledge about flying and aviation.

This RFC course consists of tailwheel conversion flight training, and is for those holding at least a Student Pilot Permit. Successful candidates will complete the ground instruction and be able to operate the aircraft, including both 3-point and wheel landings, to the instructor’s satisfaction before being recommended for rental of the aeroplane.

A pilot with an Aerobatic Certificate can perform Aerobatic Maneuvers with passengers. The Aerobatics Certificate Program takes you out of the normal envelope and sharpens your piloting skills. You will build confidence in unusual attitude and upset recovery by enhancing your knowledge of aircraft theory and control.

Egress training prepares pilots for emergency exit in the case of a crash landing over water. The training involves simulated sinking in a pool while rotating the training module upside down and focuses students on bracing for impact, identifying primary and secondary exit points, avoiding smoke inhalation, surfacing for air, and head count.
