Whether you want to be a flight instructor or a private, commercial, military, MedEvac or missionary pilot, you can gain hands-on Aviation training and grow in your Christian faith through the diverse learning community at Providence University College. In addition to Aviation certificates and diplomas, Providence is one of the few Canadian universities to offer Bachelor’s degrees in Aviation. Providence partners with Harv’s Air in Steinbach, MB, which has been training pilots from all over the world since 1973. Thanks to our in-classroom simulator and a wide range of airplanes at Harv’s Air, you’ll fly a variety of single and multi-engine planes while logging valuable instrument training hours. Combine your flight training with a minor in Business Administration or Intercultural Studies and you’ll have a powerful degree, infused with a Christian worldview, that will expand your future career options.
Join us on one of our information sessions to hear more about the program, application/admission process and what makes Providence a unique place for you to get your university education. You can find upcoming sessions here (under University College Sessions). Make sure to check out the Aviation Q&A interview with Harv's Air, found under On Demand Sessions
A Class 1 Medical is required for entrance into the Aviation major and a Class 3 medical is required if you are only completing the Aviation minor (your Private Pilot License only). These medical tests must be completed by an aviation medical examiner. For more information, contact an enrollment officer today.
In order for you to begin flying, Harv's Air and Providence require that you complete a flight camp which takes place before the beginning of classes on campus. Students must have the following documents with them for the flight camp
Students must also purchase Flight Kits and the Private Pilot Ground School Exercise Courses and must prepare for a PSTAR exam during the flight camp. The material needed has been provided below. Students need a 90% on the PSTAR Exam as well as an acceptable flight evaluation to pass the Camp Assessment. A satisfactory Camp Assessment and passing of the PSTAR Exam will allow you to continue in the Aviation program.
The full cost of the Flight Camp is $4186.15. The cost of the camp MUST be paid at the Business Office and all flying expenses paid to Harv's Air prior to the start of the camps. Costs are subject to change.
