There are a lot of specialized operations out there flying in fascinating, remote parts of the world; doing interesting things with air planes. I love what I do for a living; really... It has been, and still is an incredible adventure! And I certainly won't ever forget that it all started in Moncton.

From my first step inside dispatch, to my first ground school class through to my first flight at MFC, something just clicked & I knew that this was world-class training. The facilities & staff at MFC really were the deciding factor in my decision to pursue a career as a professional pilot.

Program Specifications

Integrated Commercial Pilot Courses (ICPC) Including ATP (A) (Degree Program)

In 2001, the Moncton Flight College (MFC), in its ongoing effort to provide Professional Flight Training, has established the Integrated Commercial Pilot Courses (ICPC) including the Integrated Airline Transport Pilot Course IATP (A), as yet another option for the career-orientated student.

Upon completion of one of these programs, graduates will receive the Transport Canada approved Integrated Commercial Pilot Certificate, which includes the Commercial Pilot License with a Multi-Engine Rating and Instrument rating from MFC Training as well as a Bachelor of Arts Degree from St. Thomas University.

The aim of the Airline Transport Pilot (ATP(A)) integrated course is to train pilots to the level of proficiency necessary to enable them to operate as co-pilot on multi-crew, multi-engine aeroplanes in commercial air transportation and to obtain the commercial pilot license— aeroplane, the multi-engine rating and the Group 1 instrument rating.

The MFC Training has become one of only a handful of professional flight training centers in Canada to be approved for such a course. For years, flight training consisted of getting a Private License, followed by a Commercial, and possibly a Multi/IFR, with each course being offered separately.

Now, with the Integrated Commercial Pilot Courses, these licenses and ratings are all included within a structured curriculum where the ground school integrates into the flight training. The ICPC includes approximately 500 hours of ground school, 380 hours more than the traditional flight training.

Once you have graduated from this program you will have an IATP(A) certificate and required Transport Canada licenses. This will be further described on the following pages.

Program Length

This is a 48-month program in total in partnership with St. Thomas University.  Students spend the entire first year at STU with a full course load.  Starting with the second year, the STU course load is slowed to 3 courses and the flight training begins with MFC Training and continues for the remaining 36-months.

September of each year. Start dates are subject to change. Please visit our website at or .  You can also contact MFC Training admissions at or STU admissions at for exact start dates.
