IFR Rating: Single or Multi

When the weather goes down and the experience level goes up. If you've been flying for a while, you'll know how clouds can sneak up on you.

A good pilot will never get caught, but learning how to fly IFR (instrument flight rules) will offer you a measure of safety that one day, you'll be happy you have. Designed for either single or multi engine aircraft, the IFR course teaches you how to fly under instrument flying rules – departure procedures, enroute, and arrival procedures. The multi-engine component adds complexity and increases safety. It is essential for career pilots, and highly recommended for leisure aviators.

Our Seneca III and Seneca V are surely the best equipped multi- and IFR trainers around, and we lovingly call them "Baby Airliners". With the single engine service ceiling of 18,000 feet they give you the freedom of going anywhere on the continent, incl. IFR trips over the Rockies. Equipped with WAAS Garmin 430, 530, stormscope, T-CAS, weather radar, built-in oxygen system, auto-pilot, de-icing and air conditioning for hot summer days - it just does not brew you coffee.

This challenging course will make you a truly competent pilot.

Expand your knowledge and skill. Increase your freedom.

Multi-IFR Testimonials

Alexander Luckham

I came down from the Northwest Territories with a mission in mind to get my Multi IFR rating. I walked in the front door of Canadian Flight Center to a warm welcome and a tour of the facility's including the DCX MAX flight simulator and their large fleet of aircraft. I expressed to them that I had a short window to do the training in, they were ready to start the next day. I went and wrote my INRAT exam after a couple days of study and then began the multi training. After 3 days of training I took my multi flight test with the in house examiner and passed. I immediately began the IFR portion of it. Alot of sim time with a good mix of aircraft time. We took a long cross country trip to Kamloops and back, that was a nice break from the cluster of Vancouver airspace. The weather cooperated for the most part with only 2 days non flyable. After at total of 15 days from my first multi engine flight to my multi IFR flight test I was done. This was all at my pace and my instructor was very supportive and went the extra mile to insure I was not only learning but understanding the material. I would highly recommend anyone looking for any level of flight training to go try Canadian Flight Center. Thanks to Anna, Peter and Ken for a great experience.

I went to Canadian Flight Center for my Multi Engine and Multi IFR training, and it was one of the most positive experiences in my entire life. The training, knowledge, and passion for flying is ever present with the instructors/staff, and it shows. Anytime I had questions, they were always there for me day and night. The flight instruction I received during my time with Canadian Flight Center was excellent, and they made me feel like one of the family. The aircraft are a joy to fly (the cross country trips were amazing, fun, and the knowledge I received is second to none!) I really enjoyed my time with Anna, and Peter (the owner), they are the best, and definitely made me a better pilot. If you want to train at a highly professional and incredible flight school, then it's a simple choice...Canadian Flight Center. Thanks CFC!!!

Hello, Peter, 

Wanted to thank you for your relaxed and friendly approach to the IFR renewal yesterday. You're taking a constructive rather than a judgmental approach (you called it "adding value", instead of just hammering the candidate for his flaws), and at least for personalities such as mine this is much more likely to lead to improvements than a stern judgment of faults. 

For instance, your friendly advice and guidance has already convinced me that I'll go through the Gramin 530 initial check list each time (at least on IMC days), rather than just press OK-OK. 

I hope that many of your school's students will appreciate your friendly and sensible approach focused on preacticalities rather than on rules, and that your business will thrive.

I went to CFC for my Mult IFR training. The seneca was an amazing plane and all the instructors were awesome. Everyone was friendly and they made sure I had an amazing time there. They got my training done fast where I finished my multi IFR in 2 weeks!
