Surround yourself with people who are only going to lift you higher.
Pilots are a rare kind of human. They leave the ordinary surface of the word, to purify their soul in the sky, and they come down to earth, only after receiving the communion of the infinite.
~ Jose Maria Velasco Ibarra


The VFR Over the Top (OTT) rating allows a Private Pilot to fly above a solid layer of clouds in visual Meteorological conditions when visual reference to the ground is unavailable. VFR OTT is included in the privileges for a Commercial Licence.


Training Overview

The VFR OTT program is separated into two related paths: ground instruction and in-flight training. While there are no written or in-flight Transport Canada examinations, we will furnish you with the required background knowledge, skill, and understanding to successfully meet all company and Transport Canada requirements for the rating. There is no formal Ground school for this rating.
