Question for Brampton students

Post by Dan.Aviation »

I'm looking to start flight training soon. Brampton is closest and most convenient for me. I see they have a student priority list (https://www.bramptonflightcentre.com/20 ... rity-list/). Do you have troubles getting time on aircraft? How far in advance do you usually have to schedule your flights?

Thanks!

Hi. Brampton is at full training capacity. The college students have booking priority, and they have fights reserved in the mornings, which isn't helpful. Typically, you want to schedule your flights at least a month in advance, if you want to fly in daylight. Booking anything within 2 weeks is possible, however, you'll be flying late in the day, or get a booking that ends when the flight school is closing, which can be frustrating. 95% of my flights at Brampton, were completed at night because I had no other choice.

Goodluck!

Are they stacked with instructors or are they short? I need to renew my class 4 instructor rating and was wondering if their class 1 instructors were available to fly.

Are they hiring?
Thanks

In regards to Brampton.

I lived close to them and signed up. I couldn't get into the air for over two months. They have my money and I got no flights.

Best bet would be to eat the gas money and go else where. They were a great school but has grown so much that they can't be as efficient.
