Like many people, you want to learn to fly. But here’s how you stand out from the crowd:
You want effective, timely training
I specialize in concentrated training: we'll make more of each lesson so you progress to your goals.
You value training that’s efficient
I'll make sure you're taught properly from lesson one, so you quickly learn precise and accurate skills to keep forever.
You want to learn to fly a small airplane from someone who flies small airplanes
My family and I travel often in a small plane. The skills you will learn are the same ones I use to get from A to B.
You’ll commit to studying between lessons
Learning to fly is like learning to walk: you do most of the learning on your own. You’re ready to put in time and energy to do that.
You have time for regular lessons
I and my selected instructors are available through the week to work with you individually to achieve your goals. Pick a morning or afternoon slot and we'll make it happen.
You’re really interested in the how of airplanes
My amazement in flight has never left me. If the idea of taking to the skies fills you with wonder too, then we’ll get along just fine.
Not all flight schools are the same.
To help you decide if I’m right for you, let me tell you how I’m different.
It’s extra-important to partner with the right flight school and the right instructor for your early training. Learning good habits early will set you up for safe flying for life, while bad habits can take a long time to erase. To help you know if Alec Myers Flight Training is right for you, here are some things I promise you won’t get from me.
I teach in a Grob 115C, a sleek modern airplane, and the same airframe used by the RCAF and the RAF.
No instructors younger than your children, teaching what they learned only last month.
I’m not pretty or glamorous, but I first flew nearly 30 years ago and I know how to teach.
No installed equipment that doesn't work, and in fact hasn't worked for years.
In my airplane, if something breaks, it gets fixed. You deserve that.
No disagreements between the Chief Flight Instructor and the business owner.
In my school the boss is also the Chief Instructor. If you have a problem, I have the power to fix it.
Some more reasons to train with me…
Lessons are three hours
In three hours you can make two flights with a short break. In the second flight you will review the first, and learn new material. You'll learn faster, have better recall, and waste less time travelling to and from the airport.
Our flights are recorded
After each lesson you get a link to a video and audio recording of our ground and flight training. See what you did wrong and what went right. Use each recording to prepare for your next lesson, making better use of our time.
You'll visit different airports
There are a dozen airports and aerodromes within visiting distance of Toronto; we will use several of them for our training, giving you a richer experience and preparing you better for life as a pilot.
You will never wait for an airplane
You’ll never be held up waiting for someone else’s instructor to return with your airplane. And your lesson with never be cut short because another instructor booked your airplane. It's just you, me, and the airplane.
Here are my three training guarantees for 2021…
I hold myself, my instructors and my students to high standards of teaching and flying and so I’m excited to promise you the following. No other flight school in Canada gives this to you.
1 - Solo standard in 20 hours
You should make your first solo flight around 15 hours of flight training. If you haven't reached that standard by 20 hours then I'll teach you for free until you do.Read more…
2 - The teaching is right, or I'll make it right
If one of my instructors teaches you something in a way that doesn't meet my standards, then I'll teach it to you myself, with no lesson fee.Read more…
3 - If you didn’t like the lesson, the teaching was free
You should both enjoy and learn something from each lesson. If you don't, then the teaching was free.Read more…
If you need more persuading,
here are some nice things
people have said…
LCol (RCAF Ret’d) J R CHANDLER
[Alec] is an intelligent, personable, hard working and knowledgeable flight instructor. I have no hesitation in recommending his services in the field of aviation.
Andrew C. Boyd
Fast jet and formation aerobatic pilot
Alec has an exceptional level of knowledge and skill. He is an experienced IFR and tailwheel pilot - quite uncommon in today's flight instructors … As someone who instructed for 25 years, I strongly recommend Alec as a flight instructor.
Restaurant Executive, Student Pilot
I have been receiving formal education for 20 years including school, university , military etc….[Alec is] by far one of the best teachers I have had.
R. da Silva
Alec … It was a pleasure to meet with you today and I feel that I learned a lot from you; in fact, I’ve never had such a single productive lesson … I think you can really help me fill in the gaps of my training. I wish I had reached out sooner!
Project Manager & PPL
Alec is an excellent teacher. He doesn't just teach you what and how, he also shows you why. This has helped me become a capable, well-informed, and safe pilot. Alec's teaching methods are friendly and personable, and lessons just ended up being fun!
Alec was my teacher for my Instructor Rating. He's thoughtful, original, sometimes unconventional, but always dedicated to his students’ progress. My own students benefit from things Alec taught me.
I took my first pre-solo flight test with Alec. During my test I learned things I had frankly never known after having five instructors
I won’t fly with anyone else - and that's the truth.
PPL, Night Rating student
Thanks so much for your superb instruction. It’s always a pleasure to fly with you.
CPL & Retired Air traffic controller
Alec gets it done. He provides effective and informative instruction. Quality training, superior results. Highly recommended.
Here are the questions I get asked most often
and here are some answers.
Enough about me. Now, tell me about you .
I want to hear from you. One pilot to another. Tell me your dreams and aspirations.
Are you a pilot already or is that something you’ve always dreamed of becoming? Do you want to buy your own plane? Or rent one occasionally? Fly for an airline? Do you like the idea of flying yourself to travel to different places? Or for work? What is it that excites you? I want to hear.
And this is how else you can reach me…
