About US

Come train at Near North Aviation! With locations at the Parry Sound Area Municipal Airport and in York. We are within close proximity to some of the province’s most treasured landscapes. Enjoy the benefits of learning to fly in low traffic airspace that is located only a short distance from Toronto.

Some of the programs available:


For those students who want to pursue their pilots licence full-time, Near North will soon be able to offer on-site accommodations and a meal plan at the Wings Café. Students get more time in the air and more landings and take-offs with each booking.


Training areas for aerial exercises are located nearby, and exposure to high-density traffic is only minutes away, so by the time students are ready for the Flight Test they will be comfortable in all environments.

Had enough of the cottage traffic on the 400? Is your destination not serviced by commercial air carriers? Looking for a quick, economical alternative for your short or long haul flight?


When planning your next flight remember the “5 P’s”: Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance. We have provided flight planning tools to assist you with preparing for your next flight.


Safety is a key component of our operation at Near North. We also appreciate that good pilots are never finished learning. With those two items in mind, please take some time to read through our information.
