For Canadian students, flight training at the Bellingham Airport (at the Command Aviation location) is not only convenient (just 18 miles south of the Canadian border) but an economical flight training opportunity, costing much less than training north of the border. At close $500 an hour for R22 time in Canada, your cost per flight hour is about half that price training with Command Aviation at $287 per dual flight hour and $247 per solo hour (fuel included). To Save even more ask about block rate discounts. Training in the U.S. for Canadian flight training students requires registration with the TSA.
