GFT Aerospace

GFT, offering elite flight training in Canada, prepares pilots for the real world of aviation. GFT has a state of the art facility, large fleet of Cessna aircraft, many qualified instructors and a proven program to help you achieve your goal, on time and on budget.

GFT, strategically located in Gander Newfoundland, Canada, is well positioned as a flight training facility. GFT students experience four seasons. This proves to be beneficial because students experience real world weather conditions and can avoid the label “sunshine pilots”.

Testimonials I started as a student with Gft in 2006 when I was 17 and fresh out of high school. The staff were very helpful in making the transition into post secondary education. Gft's fares are competitive with the industry and the wide variety of people make it a great place to train. I graduated the cpl program and then moved into the instructor rating where I was hired as soon as my course was finished. I worked as a flight instructor for two years where i gained some very valuable flying skills. "the best pilots are trained in Atlantic Canada, because they are faced with so much adverse weather" air Canada jazz capatin. After instructing I moved onto another company to peruse my career but I will be forever grateful for the life lessons Gft has provided me. Very knowledgable and skillfull instructors, as we train our own students to the high standard we have set out for Gft. good luck in your endeavors wherever you choose to go! Megan Keeping
