Select Aviation College reacted fast to the pandemic situation. As per Quebec Government recommendations, we closed the school’s facilities and adopted an online version of our ground school permitting the students to keep moving forward in their training. In addition, we are looking forward to reopening the school soon and have implemented measures to prevent the spread of the virus including sanitization of the planes and a limitation on the amount of students flying at the same time.
If the online ground school is followed thoroughly, no major delay is expected. Transport Canada will open new examination centres and the college will take all required measures to ensure the flying portion of the training follows the advancement of the ground. This is why it is important for students to be serious and do the assigned homework!
If a major delay happens, the college will extend accommodation contracts to allow students to finish their training. However, rigour is expected on the students’ side. Once again, if the ground school is followed seriously, no major delay should occur.
Canada’s health system is world class and the provincial and federal government have taken the required preventative measures. This being said, in line with many top-level recommendations, we also do not recommend anyone to travel until the end of the crisis. Further information can be provided by Daniel Giraldo.
We are working hard on getting special authorization under certain conditions. An update will follow soon.
