E-Learning Courseware Developer

COMPANY PROFILE
Pacific Sky Aviation Inc. (‘PSAI’) is a privately held B.C. company, with operations at our headquarters in Victoria and at our Twin Otter flight test and training centre in Calgary, Alberta. PSAI’s sister company Viking Air Limited (‘Viking’) is a global leader in utility aircraft services and manufacturer of the world-renowned Series 400 Twin Otter.
 
For over 25 years, PSAI has been a Transport Canada approved provider of flight training, including initial licensing and ratings for new pilots.  Since Viking’s launch of the Series 400 Twin Otter and acquisition of the Bombardier waterbomber program, PSAI has also provided advanced Twin Otter and CL-215/CL-415 training for pilots throughout the world. PSAI’s brand new flight training center in Calgary houses a Level “D” Viking Twin Otter Series 400 Full Flight Simulator. In the first year of operation, the Twin Otter simulator is beating expectations and business growth is expanding rapidly.

For the past two years, PSAI has been providing training for CL-215 and CL-415 waterbomber pilots and engineers. Viking is considering the restart of production with the CL-515, an improved and modernized version of the classic waterbomber. This growth requires a new position at PSAI – E-Learning Courseware Developer.
