Collège Air Richelieu Launches Transport Canada Pilot Project

Program Designed To Lead to Certification As An ATO

Collège Air Richelieu, one of the largest piloting schools in Canada, has become the first to sign an agreement with Transport Canada in a pilot project leading to ATO (Approved Training Organization) certification. Transport Canada launched a Pilot Project for the purposes of developing a regulatory framework built on ICAO standards and governing the operation and certification of ATOs in Canada.

Air Richelieu's participation in the Pilot Project came about after a rigorous selection process that began in 2016. As part of the pilot project, Competency Based Training will be introduced which is a means of training that places emphasis on achieving benchmarked standards of performance.

Air Richelieu, a flight school that is highly regarded in the industry, thus enjoys an additional advantage that will open the next phase of its development.

"We are very proud of being the first training center in Canada to join the Transport Canada Pilot Project and we will seize this opportunity to offer even more adapted training to our Canadian and international clients. In this context, we plan to open new centers in Canada," said Thierry Dugrippe, president of Air Richelieu.

Air Richelieu is a training center founded in 1928 and formerly known as the Montreal Flying Club. True to its tradition of excellence, Collège Air Richelieu was the first pilot flight school to offer an attestation of college studies (ACS) in 2014 and a diploma of college studies (DCS) in 2019. Some 150 students graduate every year, and the school employs state-of-the-art infrastructure including 3 simulators and 31 aircraft.
