Vaccination Requirement - October 30, 2021

Based on material supplied in the form of a Transport Canada Interim Order, related supporting documents from Transport Canada and information from our airports of operation, Southern Interior Flight Centre has established a requirement that all persons who wish to have access to in-aircraft training, rental, discovery flight and sightseeing activities MUST be fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated is defined as the individual having received:

  • the full series of an authorized COVID-19 vaccine, or an acceptable combination of; and
  • the last dose at least 14 full days prior to the day you wish to fly
     

Accepted proof of vaccination information is found at the following link:

Vaccination status will be verified upon arrival at the facility. To maintain the highest level of personal privacy and protection of your information, please do NOT forward any vaccination information via email and do NOT provide photocopies of vaccination information for us to keep.

Southern Interior Flight Centre will also honor proof of APPROVED medical and religious exemptions.  Please contact your health authority and/or Transport Canada if you believe one of these exemptions applies to your situation.

NOTE:  This Vaccination Policy may be amended in the near future to include all non-flight activities as well.
