General Information for the Pilot Selection Course and the Pilot Interviewing Workshop

The 2-day pilot selection course and the interviewing workshop usually are taught  at the Quebec Center for Aviation Training (CQFA) facilities in Montreal.  The CQFA facilities are located across the street from Pierre Traudeau International Airport Montreal  and may be reached by a short taxi ride. A Best Western hotel is located approximately 100 yards from the facilities with other hotels nearby.

Periodically, the pilot selection course is taught at a hotel near O’Hare International  Airport. The hotel is selected on the basis of its facilities, including its dining options and free transportation to the airport.

The pilot selection course and the interviewing workshop may be taught in conjunction with major aviation meetings at other venues.  The course or the workshop also may be taught at a client’s facilities.

The pilot selection course and the workshop usually are conducted on weekdays from approximately 9 AM to 4 PM.   When the classes are held in conjunction with a major meeting, the schedule may be adjusted  to include a Saturday meeting. The teaching schedule allows  for an hour for lunch and two coffee breaks.  However, the schedule may be changed when the course is held in conjunction with another aviation meeting to accommodate the participants’ need to attend other meetings.

The registration fee should be paid at the time of enrollment (before the class begins) . The enrollment fee will be refunded for courses with fewer than six  participants.  A participant may withdraw with no penalty from any course or workshop up to 7 days before the start date.

Information on any course or workshop may be obtained by contacting the Quebec Center for Aviation Training (CQFA) at 514-300-2732, Extension 101  or email
