Welcome to Ifly
Much more than a flight school.
Based in Quebec City, iFly College is an aviation training center at the cutting-edge of technology.
iFly trains future pilots looking for security, superior skills, confidence and altitude!
Much more than a flight school, iFly College is a full aviation training center equipped with the latest technology. Our mission: make our students the best and most valued pilots in the industry.
iFly offers complete training programs ranging from private pilot to commercial pilot. Unlike other flight schools who target volume and rentability by training as many pilots as possible, iFly works with the most serious and ambitious candidates. We strive for quality, not quantity.
On the flight deck and in the air, iFly has brought together the best flight instructors. Many of them are or have been pilots with the biggest Canadian airlines on Boeing 787, Airbus 330, Airbus 320, Lockheed L-1011, CRJ 705, Citation X, ATR-42, DASH-8, BE-02, Pilatus PC-12, etc.
Our pilot instructors cumulate thousands of hours of experience, are still active and regularly operate commercial flights.
While most flight schools rush to train young flight instructors without experience to increase their profits, we believe that experienced and passionate instructors sharing their knowledge make all the difference.
iFly College is a member of the Chrono Aviation Group. We do not only teach you how to fly an airplane: we prepare you for a career in aviation. Whether flying Chrono Aviation's Pilatus PC-12's and Beechcraft 1900D's (BE-02) or flying other aircraft with other carriers who are always looking for new pilots ready to operate flights under 703 and 704, our primary objective is to give you true access to commercial pilot jobs.
Fly College is proud to be Chrono Aviation's official provider of new pilots, a proof that our flight training meets the highest industry standards.
Our aircraft are ultra-modern. Our C-172, DA-20 et DA-42 are all equipped with "glass cockpit" technology using Garmin G500 and G1000 systems. No more needles! With iFly, you will be ready to pilot today's and tomorrow's planes.
On the ground, our G500 and G1000 simulators (FTDs) are always available to our students at no extra cost. In addition, we are the only flight school in Quebec City offering "level D" simulators, the most technologically advanced in the country.
iFly College offers spaces specially designed for top-of-the-line pilot training. The premises are furnished and equipped to let you learn the disciplines of flying in a peaceful environment. You will find a multimedia room, workstations and rest areas where you'll be able to chat with other aviation enthusiasts.
