Even our multi engine aircraft has 'partial glass' with GPS and other avionics coupled to the Electronic Horizontal Situation Indicator.

Safety Management System:
While flight schools in Canada do not have to meet new Safety Management System criteria until 2012, Southern Interior Flight Centre already exceeds the first phase of the SMS requirement due in 2012. SIFC is part of Carson Air, so we are able to fully utilize all support systems at this large operational Air Charter company, including complete access to all safety personnel and programs within the scope of the Carson Air Safety Management System.

Student Testimonials:

"The training I received at SIFC prepared me with the knowledge and skills I needed to find employment in the Aviation industry. I graduated from the Commercial Aviation Diploma program in 2006 at the top of my class and was employed at SIFC as a Flight Instructor. I soon found employment with Alberta Central Airways flying medevac and charter flights on King Airs, where I upgraded quickly to Captain. The CAD program taught me what I needed to know to make it through the selection process at Air Canada Jazz, where I currently fly a Dash 8. I highly recommend training at SIFC to get a solid start on a professional career in aviation."
 - Cameron, Pilot - Air Canada Jazz.

 "Besides very knowledgeable staff with real world experience, S.I.F.C provides another great training environment with its location.  With good year round weather, mountain flying experience, lack of congestion from other training schools you are able to focus primarily on training. The airport is an added benefit with good tower staff, a large runway and enough commercial traffic to get a feel of what larger airports are like."
- Charles, Commercial Aviation Diploma / Instructor Graduate.
