Aviation safety seminars

We offer free safety seminars to the general aviation community. These seminars provide pilots with tools, tips and best practices to help make well-informed decisions.

About the seminars

The seminars are 2-to-3-hour sessions that address aviation safety topics. You’re invited to share your experiences as a pilot, and the seminars are an opportunity to meet other aviation enthusiasts.

In addition to keeping your skills current, attending a seminar meets the 2-year recurrent training requirement in the Canadian Aviation Regulations, Standard 421.05(2).

Upcoming seminars

We will be visiting all regions (Pacific, Prairie and Northern, Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic). We’ll post upcoming seminar dates here, by region.
