Flight School Update – April 24, 2020

The Yukon Territory, through the leadership of the CMO, has done a great job of limiting the spread of Covid 19 throughout Whitehorse and the Communities. Alkan Air Flight Academy has joined forces with all Yukon businesses and community members to limit the spread of COVID-19 in Yukon.

Alkan Air Flight Academy will continue to support our territory as we move forward and we will adapt the operation as needed over time.  First and foremost our priority is the health and well being of all Yukoners.

That said, we recognize the importance of continuing education and we want to support our students in pursuing their aviation licenses.

We are well prepared to mitigate the health risks and will do so using the following parameters:

 

a) All students and instructors will confirm in writing that they are healthy and have not had flu-like symptoms for the past 14 days. They will also agree to maintain the strictest hygiene regimen prior to and while in the flight school.  The documentation will be provided by the flight academy.

 

b) The flight school will maintain a strict cleaning protocol for the school and it’s aircraft.

c) The students and staff all agree that any aircraft used for training will have common areas cleaned prior to every flight i.e. flight controls, seatbelts, knobs etc

 

d) The students and staff agree to wear a hospital-like mask (not supplied) while conducting flight training of any kind.

 

e) The flight school will operate only 2 Cessna 172s and the Seneca during this time.

 

f) The flight school will limit the number of flight school personnel to two at this time in an effort to limit exposure for both the students and ftu team. 

 

We are confident in our mitigation strategies.  However, if you have any additional steps you recommend, please share them with us.  We will continue to work with all Yukoners in limiting COVID-19 in the weeks and months ahead.

 

With that being said, Alkan Air Flight Academy will be open on May 4th, 2020.
