The First Peoples’ Aviation Technology - Flight Program (Advanced Diploma) is the only Indigenous aviation post-secondary program of its kind in Canada. Delivered in partnership with Canadore College, this program provides hands-on flight training for students interested in pursuing a pilot licence or working in the aviation industry. Graduates will hold a commercial licence with their rating of choice and will also meet the eligibility criteria to obtain a Flight Dispatcher designation and a Two-Crew & Cruise Relief Pilot (IATRA) certification.
Train at the Tyendinaga Aerodrome – a one-of-a-kind facility including hangars, classrooms and student residence. The Aerodrome was originally built in 1916 as a training school for pilots during World War I.
