Training

How do I get started?

Contact us and book an introductory flight. If you like it, we'll go from there.

Are there any physical requirements for training/flying?

Due to engineering restrictions, the maximum weight for an individual is 225 pounds (102 kilograms). Strong upper body strength is required in order to operate the controls safely. In addition, you should be able to pass a standard physical exam.

How long will it take to get my license?

It depends. If you are dedicated to waking up early and are able to fly frequently (weather permitting!) you may be able to be licensed in as short as three months. On average, it takes one year.

Trikes

At what time of day can trikes fly?

Due to thermal heating (i.e. turbulence), trikes can only fly in the mornings and evenings. Typically, this means sunrise until 9am and 6pm until dark.

How much does a trike cost?

On average, a used trike costs between $20,000 - $35,000 CAD depending on --  among other factors -- condition, age of wing, and engine size. A new trike will cost over $45,000 CAD.

How high can I fly in a trike?

We typically fly up to 5,000 ft. Trikes can fly up to 10,000 ft without oxygen, and up to 13,000 ft with oxygen.

General

Once I have my license, can I take a passenger?

No. Federal aviation regulations DO NOT permit passengers on trikes as they are considered basic ultralights. Only instructors can take students on flights.

Do you do repairs?

Unfortunately not. We are happy to direct you to authorized repair services.

Can I rent your trikes?

Due to insurance requirements, we are unable to rent trikes.
All training is completed on company aircraft.  Solo flights are completed on your aircraft.
