CFC offers charter transportation. That means we can take you to the most remote areas of the province while you are finishing your morning coffee! Chilko Lake from Vancouver in less than two hours or Victoria in 20 minutes? Not a problem!
At Canadian Flight Centre, we have trained over 3000 students, for whom flying is no longer just a dream, but a reality. Is the course extremely difficult? No. It is challenging, but if you apply yourself, and do your homework, you’ll soon be soaring over fields, hills, lakes and playgrounds, where – just maybe – a 5-year-old future pilot will look up and stare as you fly by.
Learn to fly and discover freedom!
The first step in training to becoming a pilot starts with the Private Pilot License (PPL). With this license, you are able to fly when you want to fly. Training at CFC is fun, and you even get to pick your type of airplane: from Piper Cherokee to a Cessna 172 Turbo Diesel, or a Tomahawk or even a Citabria – the choice is yours!
