50 Hour Bush Pilot Programme

Air-Hart Aviation’s flight training centre has developed a unique syllabus to help you towards your goal of being a bush pilot. Our 50 Hour Bush Pilot course is our most popular program, and is the best way to prepare for a bush pilot job. Our 50 hour bush course includes 25 dual hours and 25 hours solo. We are one of the few floatplane operators that provide true solo hours. We believe this is an important component in ensuring you are prepared for an exciting career as a bush pilot. As a Canadian company, we realize the need for competent ‘bush pilots’ as well as future airlines pilots. The airline industry is always keen to hire competent young pilots with bush experience. Their hiring practices are cyclical and it is unlikely that all commercial pilots will have the opportunity to move into the right-hand seat of an airline partner immediately. Charter companies are often an option, and because of their varied assignments, they appreciate a well-rounded pilot. Some pilots who experience the thrill of bush flying may choose to stay within this branch of aviation for their entire careers.

Floatplane Advantage

The operator that hired me chose me over other applicants that had higher total times. The difference was that I had more float time and the 50 hour float course and CPL training I received at Air-Hart really gave me an edge to get my first flying job. My experience there was something I will always remember and appreciate.

Jamie Coxall, Former Air-Hart Student

Many floatplanes schools do not offer true solo hours as part of their 50 hour program. At Air-Hart, we believe learning to fly solo with confidence is an important element of the learning process. The confidence gained by flying many solo hours will prepare you for the real world far more than having the safety net of an instructor along for the ride.

*Minimum hours are quoted – individual students may require additional time or more dual hours. Does not include tax.
