General Information

Langley Flying School's training operations revolve around its staff of full-time and part-time Flight Instructors, who are responsible for the safe conduct of individual training flights. Flight Instructors are typically recruited from graduates of the school's Commercial Pilot Program, but externally trained Flight Instructors are sought when staff shortages are needed to be filled within tight time frames. Students enrolled in the Commerical Pilot Program who are interested in becoming Flight Instructors should make their intentions known to the Chief Flying Instructors as early as possible.

Like most flying schools in Canada, Langley Flying School Flight Instructors typically remain on the job for two to four years, after which time they are recruited by commercial air carriers providing multi-crew aircraft for commuter or airline operations.

Langley Flying School's staff is governed by traditional rules of seniority based on hire date, with senior Flight Instructors receiving priority with regard to student bookings and access to advance multi-engine and instrument flight instruction.

Flight Instructors begin with a flat hourly pay of $30 per hour for Class IV Flight Instructors, and $35 per hour for Class III and $40 for Class II and above Flight instructors.   Groundschool Instructor are paid $25 per hour for classes, plus one-hour preparation time (per two-hour teaching assignment).  For additional assigned administrative duties, and supervision, Flight Instructors and general staff are paid $18 per hour. Generally, Flight Instructors are able to assume as many added administrative duties as they choose, but typically their primary focus while at the school is line flight instruction.
