The Sky’s The Limit
Is your head in the clouds?
If you’ve always dreamed of soaring in the skies above, Blyth Academy Burlington has the perfect program for you!
In an exciting new partnership, we’re now able to offer our students the unique opportunity to combine top-tier private education with the ability to earn a pilot’s licence and even become a instructor themselves – all before entering university!
Our four-term structure and flexible scheduling enable us to continually find new and unique paths to provide our students with individualized tools to prepare themselves for successful post-secondary lives. And starting this September, Blyth Academy Burlington students in Grades 11 and 12 can combine their full-time studies with flight training at Spectrum Airways, earning a high school education at the same time as a Commercial Pilot Licence.
Spectrum airways, based out of Burlington Executive Airport, has been in the business of pilot certification for more than 40 years, and provides flight training programs including the Private Pilot Licence and Commercial Pilot Licence, along with several specialized training programs like Night Rating, Multi-Engine Rating, Instrument Rating/Multi Instrument Rating and Instructor Rating. Students enrolled in our program will be provided transportation between the Blyth Academy Burlington campus and the airport, provided by Spectrum Airways.
By the end of Grade 11 (year one), students will have had the opportunity to earn their Private Pilot Licence (PPL) along with eight Ontario high school credits. In Grade 12 (year two), they will work toward completion of their Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) and OSSD. Upon completion of the program, students will have the opportunity to return to Spectrum and receive their Instructor rating and take their first step towards a career as a Pilot in the Aviation Industry.
This program will also provide graduates with continued advantages after completion: options after graduation include direct entry into the MIFR and Instructor Rating programs, with the opportunity to work for Spectrum Airways! As an Instructor employed with Spectrum, you will be able to earn the additional hours required to become an Airline Transport Pilot. Many of Spectrum Airways’ Instructors have moved on to careers with regional airlines such as WestJet and Porter in as little as one year post-CPL. This pilot training pathway is the first of its kind for high school students and is set to generate expert level pilots to fill the demand of the emerging Aviation industry.
Students will be required to complete and pass the Civil Aviation Medical Exam by June 1, 2020 in order to enrol. Other conditions and stipulations may apply.
