Pilot Program

The Waterloo Wellington Flight Centre (WWFC) – located at the Region of Waterloo International Airport originally founded in 1932 – is one of the largest and most experienced flight training centres in Canada.

CIC Waterloo & WWFC now offer a joint program for students pursuing aviation as a career. The flight school has a fleet of over 20 aircraft and 2 Sims available for training. Our airport has daily airline services, with a control tower and multiple IFR approaches, yet the uncontrolled airspace of our practice area is just 5 minutes away!
