About Us

Your aviation home in the north.

We are your home for training, flight school, and travel to & from the cottage. 

Near North Aviation

Come train at Near North, located at the Parry Sound Area Municipal Airport in the beautiful setting off the rugged coastline of Georgian Bay in the heart of Ontario’s playland. The area offers some of the most spectacular scenery in the country and enjoys the benefits of being located only a few hours from Toronto.

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. And there are no air traffic delays, no interruptions in airborne lessons because of radio chatter! 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.

Near North, formerly B.P Flight Training Inc., operates from the beautiful setting off the rugged coastline of Georgian Bay in the heart of Ontario’s playland.

The staff of Near North is dedicated to providing the same friendly, outgoing and professional service and will answer any of your questions concerning training, sightseeing or charter flights.

Bruce Platt, founder of B.P. Flight Training Inc. started the company in July of 2001 at the Parry Sound Area Municipal Airport and successfully grew the operation to include three aircraft and an Elite Simulator, used for instrument instruction. Bruce will still be the CFI with Near North, and will continue the standard of delivering high quality training. Students already enrolled in courses will see a seamless transition. In the future, look forward to new aircraft types and an expanded curriculum.

We hope you enjoy the new look of the webpage, and the upcoming plans of the new management. If you have any questions about any of your aviation needs, the “Contact” page lists all of our contact information to serve you.

The next PPL ground school that we will be offering will be an accelerated program which will consist of two full weekends and an additional Saturday. Keep checking back for more details.

You don’t have to start at the beginning, but jumping in at the start of a new topic would be useful. If you miss a class, you can catch up on it the next time around. If there’s a section of material that needs some reinforcement or review, as long as you are a MFC graduate and did your initial ground school at MFC, you are welcome to sit in on any class a second or third time.

Also, you don’t have to complete ground school before your flight training starts. In fact, most students have found that flight training concurrently with ground school helps reinforce the classroom concepts.
