To gain maximum benefit from tactical training programs, students must be exposed to a variety of relevant aircraft that challenge their capabilities and deliver unique learning experiences.

With that premise in mind, ITTC has built a diverse fleet of modern and vintage airplanes, including jet fighters and trainers such as the Hawker Hunter T.7 and the Aero Vodochody L-39C. In addition, ITTC offers rotary-wing customers the chance to experience several helicopter models, from the MBB Bo 105M to the Bell 206B JetRanger, and more.

To supplement its own fleet, ITTC hires outside aircraft if needed for specific exercises.

London International Airport (CYXU)

The airport is an international gateway with direct flights from Chicago and Detroit, and features Canada Border Services Agency facilities. As of 2009, London International was the 20th busiest airport in Canada, which translates into very few traffic delays for school operations.

The airport is south of Toronto and outside the Toronto (CYYZ) FIR, with large nearby sections of Class E and G airspace, minimizing transit times for the execution of flight exercises which can be flown up to FL180 on a VFR flight plan but are Controlled VFR (CVFR) with flight control by Toronto Centre above 12000 feet. Two dedicated test areas Delta and Juliet a low altitude one to 12000 feet and a high altitude one over Lake Huron, up to FL350, north west of London may be used by the school under an agreement with NAV Canada, the Canadian Air Traffic Control Authority. The school therefore enjoys a very favourable air traffic environment for its training operations.

Its origins go back to the early 1920s; during the Second World War, it was one of the airports used for the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, which produced Allied pilots.
