May 5, 2011 · New Rates for 2011

We have not changed our pricing in over two years. During that time we have had increased costs in all areas of our business including maintenance, insurance, staffing and most recently fuel. With our fuel surcharge now at over $13.00 it is appropriate that we update our rates to account for these higher costs.

Accordingly we are going to change our aircraft rental rates. Along with a small increase in the basic aircraft cost we have incorporated the current fuel costs so that our fuel surcharge will now be zero. Please note that we will not be changing our instructor rates at this time and will continue to do all we can to hold our rates down. We regret having to do this and hope that it will not cause you any difficulty or hardship.

Effective May 9, 2011 the hourly rates will be as follows:

Basic Instruction........................................$60.00 per hour
Advanced Instruction.................................$65.00 per hour
Class 1 Instruction....................................$70.00 per hour
Private Instruction (own airplane)...........$70.00 per hour
Private Inst. Class 1 (own airplane).......$80.00 per hour
Cessna 172 Rental...................................$159.00 per hour
Cessna 172 Sightseeing Ride...............$250.00 per hour
Introduction to Flight Training..................$119.00
Fuel Surcharge..........................................as required
Solo Insurance Waiver..............................$10.00 per hour

Basic instruction includes Recreational, Private and Night while Advanced instruction includes Commercial, Float Rating, VFR Over-the-Top Rating, Instrument and Multi.

Class 1 instruction includes all instruction done by our Class 1 instructors.

Future Air will honour all existing contracts at their stated rates.

Our rates are still generally less than those charged by other comparable flight schools.

Should you have any questions or comments regarding these new rates, please feel free to address them with our staff.

“I just recently became a Canadian Private Pilot at the age of 43 all thanks to Future Air. The need for flexibility around my working and family life schedule was of the utmost importance. However, all of the instructors and staff were very accommodating to this need and it was never an issue. Most importantly they made the learning fun. Thanks Future Air for fulfilling a lifelong dream. PPL July, 2014 ”
