Weekly Pilot Summer Camps begin

This program provides people of all ages with unique opportunity to experience pilot training, with all flight and ground time providing credit for certified pilot training.  Acadia College provides eleven levels of training, with students being able to progress through the levels and ultimately achieve certification from Transport Canada as a Canadian Private Pilot.  Remember too that the Private Pilot Licence is also the prerequisite for the Canadian Commercial Pilot Licence!  Each of the levels consists of five days of training, with each day providing approximately 2 hours of pilot groundschool and 1 hour of air instruction and practice in one of Acadia College’s training aircraft.

The Pilot Summer Camps run actively through the summer, with the first session beginning the week of June 12th through 16th, and the final session taking place the week September 4th through 8th  Enrollment is limited, and registration is based on a first-come, first-served basis.

Elementor #1534

At this Canadian college we offer pilot training that is tailored to students individual needs. Some students work part time while attending college, others are married with children. We make every effort to help you meet your training goals while understanding that students have varying needs and time constraints.

Night Flying over Langley

The nights get longer at winter with the sun going down at 4:30 pm. With the early nights we have begun night flying training. Each student is paired with an instructor and they fly together until the instructor is confident that the student is ready for solo night trips. Some students find they love the solitary evenings.
