Floatplane Training


Foreign Conversion – 50 Hours – Diarmuid Oregan

Diarmuid PhotoI came to Air-Hart Aviation because I could do my conversion while gaining valuable floatplane hours. From the beginning I was treated like family and received the best training possible. After completing my training and getting my Canadian license I got my first floatplane job in Ontario flying a 206 on floats. This year I am in Manitoba flying a Beaver. It was my dream to be a floatplane pilot in Canada but I never thought it would actually happen. Thanks to Air-Hart, I am living my dream.

Foreign Conversion & 50 Hour Course – Sebastien B.

SebastienI had a pilot’s license from France but it was my dream to get my first flying job in Canada flying floatplanes. I am happy to report that I will be flying a 185 floatplane for a fishing lodge in Northern Manitoba starting this May. Before coming to Canada, I knew I would have to do my conversion for a Canadian Commercial Pilot’s License but until I found Air-Hart Aviation, I didn’t realize I could do on floats! Air-Hart is the only certified flying school in Canada specializing in floats, meaning you can do all licenses on floatplanes.

test2My granddaughter and I took a tour over Kelowna and to Kalamalka Lake. It was such a great adventure. I had been in a small plane before but the floatplane ride was so much more fun. Our Pilot Ty was very informative and a lot of fun. I am definitely coming back

Air-Hart Charter Service

charterpic(1)On many occasions, our company has used Air-Hart Aviation. One special trip comes to mind.

I had to attend a crucial business meeting in downtown Vancouver. I needed to be at the meeting at 9:30 am and back in Kelowna for a 2:30 pm appointment. Air-Hart flew me from the Grand Hotel in Kelowna to the Pan Pacific Hotel in the Vancouver harbour in one-and-a-half hour.


I had my meeting, and he was able to get me back to Kelowna in time for my early afternoon appointment.

In addition, we had a spectactular flight over the mountains, and the flight alone was worth the trip. It would have been impossible to get to both meetings using commercial flights and taxis. The cost of the charter, even flying as a single passenger, was cheaper than commercial flying and the time missed by waiting for the airline”s return schedule.

Anyone flying or driving to the coast, either Vancouver or especially Vancouver Island should fly as a charter instead. The time and money saved is considerable and the flight is truly awe-inspiring.
