There are three different licence types we can help you obtain at our training centre in Toronto, ON.

Licence Types

In the world of aviation, different licence types exist that give you certain privileges when you fly an aircraft. At Genesis Flight Centre, we can introduce you to the many aviation licence types available and put you at the controls under the guidance of one of our highly qualified flight instructors, whether you are learning to fly for recreational purposes or you are interested in a career in aviation.

There are three different licence types we can help you obtain at our training centre in Toronto, Ontario:

  • Private pilot licence—This licence gives you the freedom and flexibility to fly at different times and in a wide range of aircraft. When you have one of these licences, you can also move on to more advanced flight training.
  • Commercial pilot licence—With a commercial pilot licence, you can fly for compensation. This licence is the foundation for all professional pilot careers.
  • Recreational pilot permit—If you want to start flying as quickly as possible, acquiring your recreational pilot permit is a good place to start. However, please remember that while you can obtain this licence fairly quickly, there will still be restrictions on when, where, and what aircraft you can fly.
