Flight Safety


Near North is committed to maintaining a high level of safety in all its operations. One of the most important aspects of safety are pilots who are current. Near North graduates are responsible for maintaining their own 24-Month Recency as specified in Canadian Aviation Regulations 421.05.

Keeping Your Medical Current

  • A Recreational Pilot permit requires a Category 4 medical, which must be renewed every five years.
  • A Private Pilot licence requires a Category 3 medical, which must be renewed every 5 years (or every two years if you are over 40).
  • A Commercial Pilot licence requires a Category 1 medical, which must be renewed annually (or every 6 months if your are over 40).
  • A complete list of Transport Canada authorized Aviation Medical Examiners may be found here.

Flight Safety Links


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 the following information. If you have any safety-related questions, please feel free to speak with any of our instructors. They are here to help!

Services & Facilities


Near North is currently located in the Parry Sound Area Municipal Airport’s newly renovated Business Centre. In addition to offices, Near North has a small Simulator Room, a lounge, a flight planning station, and classroom facilities.

In the lounge you will find a display of charts, books, study materials, and a range of pilot supplies for sale.

Students have access to the Business Centre as well, which comes with wireless Internet and a friendly atmosphere where you can enjoy a home cooked meal at Wing’s Airport Café.

Some of NN’s aircraft are parked right outside the door of the student lounge, while others are stored in the maintenance hangar across the ramp. Near North is fortunate to have a hard working and highly skilled maintenance staff to ensure that our fleet is in peak performance condition at all times. These guys are a friendly bunch, happy to answer questions and share information.

Near North has plans to expand to a larger office facility in the future. Keep checking for updates!


Near North is planning to offer full-time students high quality, affordable housing on-site. Why extend your training over years? Live comfortably on site and enjoy more access to the aircraft and take advantage of good weather days or partial days!
