    Well, no response to my query, so I guess Snowyshoes pulled that number out of his *****.

    In Canada, a Private Pilot License will cost about $12,000, a Recreational Permit (day vfr, one pax) about $5,000.

    For $25,000 you should be able to get a Commercial Pilot License with multi-engine and IFR ratings.

    I guess that might still be a bit more than in the US, mostly due to higher fuel costs.

    Amazing and un-true! Where do you get this $25,000 figure?

    It is possible, you just have to find somebody who is willing to deal with the TSA paperwork. Building on a US license works out much better for later conversion to various international licenses.
