ITPS Canada, a Canadian corporation based in London, Ont., operates the International Test Pilots School (ITPS), one of only eight fully accredited schools of flight testing in the world and one of only four European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approved training organizations (ATO) for flight test training worldwide.
ITPS Canada has been providing in-country tactical training since 2002 when it first presented a full fighter weapons instructor course for the Royal Malaysian Air Force. In the intervening years, ITPS expanded its portfolio of tactical courses to include advanced tactics courses and mission commander courses presented in the customer’s country.
Following demand from customers to train in Canada and the award of a major contract to conduct lead-In fighter training for the RMAF, ITPS has launched a dedicated tactical training division, the International Tactical Training Center (ITTC). Training began in January 2020 with the first course, which is to be followed by a second course of ten students later in 2020.
ITTC operates five Aero Vodochody L-39s which have been upgraded with modern electronic colour, touch screen large area displays. ITTC also operates a state of the art fighter simulator with dome display system. Training operations are conducted out of ITPS Canada’s modern facility at London International Airport in Ontario.
