I would also suggest Toronto Airways, they pay well and you will do lots of flying.

As far as which schools will be effected by the new legislation....they all are if they are going to offer vocational training (commercial & instructor ratings)

I attended the information seminar on the PCCA (Private career colleges act) I myself work in the management department of a small school, and this new law affects all flights schools in Ontario that offer the CPL and instructor ratings. It's going to mean hard times ahead for some of our operations.

Re: Ontario Restricting CPL instruction

The Ontario Gov, with no resistance from Transport Canada, is proceeding with its policy of including Flight Training Units in its Private Career College act. BC already has something similar in place. In Ontario it means that even though an FTU is Federally regulated and mandated (things such as e...

Best of luck with your groundschool, the only tips I have for you is to take notes and pay attention.

If you are looking to train on the DA20 I highly recommend Empire Aviation in London.
