Not really interested in holding a Pilot Licence but are thrilled at the idea of controlling the aircraft for short periods of time while in the air? Then this course is for you!

The co-pilot course is designed for non-pilots who fly in the right seat occasionally—or even frequently—and who would like to better understand the aircraft and be more helpful during the flight.

Please note: Taking this course does not provide any legal privileges.


The only requirement is that you have an interest in learning more about aviation. That’s it!

Although the course will be offered in English, our instructors are bilingual.


The total program cost is $410 (plus applicable tax). This includes flight time in one of the Club’s aircraft. If you provide the aircraft, the cost will be reduced.

The course consists of two ground-school sessions that are held from 9:00 a.m. until noon. The Saturday morning sessions are held two weeks apart and include two one-hour flights with an RFC instructor.

If you are a right-seat flyer interested in learning more, please register in advance with the Rockcliffe Flying Club by calling 613-746-4425 or by emailing
