Learning to fly requires both time and commitment so it makes sense to learn from great teachers to assure your success. Owen Sound Flight Services has been training people to fly since 2004 and in that time we have trained hundreds of students who have gone on to complete their pilot licence.
This experience means that we can teach you to fly better and faster than most flight training schools. Here are a few reasons why.
Our Flight Instructors are highly qualified, highly skilled pilots who love to share their passion for aviation. When you begin your flight training with Owen Sound Flight Services you become a part of our flying family. Our goal is to make people into pilots, and imparting knowledge in aviation is a never ending endeavor that we thoroughly enjoy living each day.
At OSFS, you learn to fly from passionate experts.
Training is our primary activity. Our school is not just an add-on to a commercial sightseeing or charter flight service. We’ve developed a new approach called Progressive Flight Education, a modular training system that gives you measurable accomplishment goals on your way to becoming a licensed pilot. It’s a program designed to suit the time, budget and objectives of our students.
The Owen Sound Billy Bishop Regional Airport is a modern facility with limited flight traffic so it is an ideal training location for new pilots who can be intimidated by larger airports.This small size results in more time in the air and less time waiting to takeoff, land and fly to the designated practice areas. Owen Sound is located on Georgian Bay next to the Bruce Peninsula, of the most scenic areas in the province making it a pleasure to fly in this low-traffic air space. We are located 2 hours north of Toronto by car, and 45 minutes by airplane, so we can head down to the busy airports for a training session and be back home in a just a couple of hours.
Advanced Training Opportunities
Once you have obtained your Private Pilot’s License you may want to advance to higher levels to further your skills and abilities as a pilot. Owen Sound Flight Services can provide these courses so you don’t need to change schools when looking to advance your proficiency as a pilot.
If you are already licensed, why not come to Owen Sound Flight Services to obtain those additional skills and experience the benefits of our small school and personalized service.
