Debert Flight Centre will be at CYZX to provide pilot check outs and sight seeing flights. Pending demand we may have two aircraft and two instructors for two solid days! Flights will start at 10 am.
To book a flight call at 902-662-2228. The cost per hour is $165 for renting the aircraft and $35 for the instructor. If a renter needs to do any remedial training, it must take place at Debert. After the Nov 5th the Cessna 172 aircraft will be parked in Greenwood at Annapolis Valley Regional Air Park available for rent by pilots who have completed the check ride.
CONVERSION FROM MILITARY TO PRIVATE PILOT LICENSE
Flight instructors will bring as much of the material they can that is required to convert a military pilot license to civilian. Call 902-662-2228 to discuss with the instructors. See FLIGHT TRAINING below.
GROUND SCHOOL for Private Pilot License
Ground school will be run from the aviation museum on Tuesday and Thursdays from 7-10. The cost will be $300/ student. This is planned to start mid November so call 902-662-2228 to book your seat.
Debert Flight Centre can not at this time do private pilot training or conversions at Greenwood. Any one interested in getting a license can come for a sight seeing flight. This training can be booked in Debert for now. Applications to provide flight training at CYZX are underway but no proposed start date is available so far. As more info on Greenwood start date is available we will let you know.

Below is a conceptual drawing of what is proposed for Greenwood. It shows our ramp, fueling system, hangers and the office/ reception on front of hanger 1. For more images go to Project Page
Two Hangers will each have 3 bays that are 60 x 50 feet with doors (50 foot wide) opening to the area between hangers. Aircraft would taxi out the 65 foot space between hangers to the ramp. The ramp is about 2 acres so lots of room out there. This will fully utilize the south portion of our ramp.
The T hanger option was about the same cost per aircraft as putting two aircraft in the above bay. The above bays will handle from 2 to 4 single engine aircraft and have the flexibility to hold larger aircraft. They also have the flexibility to price differently for varying sizes of aircraft. For these reasons we are not pursuing the T Hanger option at this time. However the T hanger option for 8 aircraft would fit nicely on the west end of our ramp if demand supported it and funds were available.
It is estimate that we are $100,000 to $200,000 short of funds to complete the above. We will look for additional sources of funds or delete one hanger bay to come in budget.
There will be a general information meeting to discuss these plans over the next two or three weeks.
