ITPS Expertise Spans World of Aerospace Domains

Date: Issue 108 - July 2021

One of the world's most remarkable aerospace success stories takes place in London, Canada, where ITPS Canada sets the standard in quality, bespoke training for test pilots, flight test engineers and tactical leaders. Originating in Cranfield, UK and for the past twenty years is headquartered in London, Ontario, Canada. ITPS is a unique organization with two divisions, offering the highest qualifications achievable by military pilots training to be Experimental Test Pilots at the International Test Pilots School and Fighter Weapons Instructors at the International Tactical Training Center (ITTC). One of only four fully accredited schools of flight testing worldwide and the only commercial military tactical training center, ITPS is staffed by world-class experts and driven by passion. ITPS is a leader in aerospace training innovation.

ITPS uniquely focuses on bringing its expertise to solve specific customer requirements. Whilst providing internationally accredited programs, ITPS strives to make each program relevant and valuable to an individual customer, be it an Experimental Test Pilot Course focused on 5th generation aircraft flight testing or a shorter EASA CAT-2 compliant course focused on military tactical transport with additional military systems modules. Effective and affordable stop-gap solutions are delivered, including Fighter Lead-In Training (FLIT) and Fighter Weapons Instructor Courses (FWIC). In addition, as an Ontario Ministry of Education Designated Learning Institution, ITPS is able to offer a Master of Science in Flight Test Engineering to international students either as part of the one-year test pilot and flight test engineer courses or as a stand-alone program. This is a fully accredited post-graduate degree under the Ontario Ministry of Education, enjoying the same international recognition as all Canadian University degrees.
