The Visit the Coast Course: “The Vacation of a Lifetime”

If you are visiting and looking for a unique flying adventure, leave the airports behind! Explore the Pacific coast filled with beautiful places to set-down. We can offer training in the form of a casual but serious flight-seeing vacation. We will take you to the places for which British Columbia is renowned with you as the seaplane pilot.

Visit the CoastThis course is designed for a licensed pilot interested in learning Seaplane flying techniques and skills, but who also wants to spend a vacation flying the aircraft into the scenic places that makes British Columbia so famous. This course is intended for those who are visiting the coast with flight-seeing and ‘vacation style’ training rather than an intensive course for career-minded students. The C180 allows for yourself and a friend to come along as you learn and explore with our instructor.

Consider a Mountain Check Ride. Classroom lessons on the complexities of flying in the mountains and then we’re off into the local mountain ranges for touchdowns on high altitude mountain lakes!

May we suggest a few places to visit: Whistler, Tofino, Bamfield, Princess Louisa Inlet and countless others!
