Great Lakes Helicopter is located just a 45 minute drive from Toronto. We are nestled among the cities of Kitchener, Cambridge, Guelph and Waterloo and offer the most diverse international culture in Canada. About 59,200 post-secondary students from all around the world attend Conestoga College, University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University, and more than 30,000 students live in the area. More than a half of all Canada’s immigrants come to Ontario, making the province a suitable place for newcomers.
The surrounding urban and rural areas are great for providing diverse training environments, so pilots can acquire many different abilities. Also, the weather of Southern Ontario allows the students to become familiar with weather operations without facing the severe cold of the north.
The Region of Waterloo International Airport (YFK) is the perfect place for a flight student. Unlike airports with no control zone, the students here can naturally improve their radio skills by the constant communication between the pilot and the air traffic controller.
