Greetings!!  Thank you for your interest in our flight school.

Laurentide Aviation first got off the ground in 1946, when founder Jack Scholefield completed his military career with the R.C.A.F. His original goal: to provide the best professional flight training in Canada.  The company established its excellent reputation early, the first twenty years at Cartierville Airport, and since 1970 at its own private airfield just 15 minutes west of Dorval Airport.

We are Canada’s oldest commercial flight training school, helping 150 to 200 pilots earn their license every year. Our strength lies in advanced training: during the last 50 years over 600 of our graduates have moved into careers with Air Canada, and other major International Carriers. Basic training and time building are conducted in our two seat Cessna 152 and four seat Cessna 172 trainers.
