Request for Proposal

Version Amendment # 2 27 February 2018 - see attached new document.

W8561-18-0010 Air Cadet Pilot Training 2018

Request for Proposals for:

Training to Canadian Air Cadets in Support of Air Cadet Power Pilot Scholarship 2018 Program.
The Department of National Defence has a requirement for professional services for the provision of a Private Pilot License Course in accordance with Canadian Aviation Regulations in support of Air Cadet ‘Power’ Pilot Scholarship Program. The Commander, National Cadet and Junior Canadian Rangers Support Group is required to provide the annual Cadet ‘Power’ Pilot Scholarship program.

The purpose of this Notice of Proposed Procurement is to signal the government’s intention to competitively and openly solicit Bids from potential Flying Training Units across Canada and to award multiple contracts to the qualified, competitively priced suppliers. To the extent possible, allocation of Air Cadet Students to various flight schools across Canada will be similar to the various provincial population distributions but will necessarily be influenced by the affordability and availability of accommodations for the Air Cadets.

The Department of National Defence intends to award multiple one-year contracts for the provision of a Private Pilot Licence Course for selected Air Cadets during the period of April 2018 to September 2018 only. The sum total estimated value of all Contracts will not exceed the firm ceiling of $2,800,000.00 CAD, taxes included.

Service Requirements:
Specifically, this requirement will deliver to each Air Cadet all necessary flight training facilities, training tools, aircraft and personnel for completion of a Transport Canada Private Pilot Licence Course in accordance with Canadian Aviation Regulations, consisting of a minimum of forty-five (45) hours of ground school instruction (excluding the Transport Canada written examination), plus a minimum of forty-five (45) hours of flight training and flight testing.
