The Magic and Adventure of General Aviation

Here you'll find information, entertainment, education, & adventures for pilots and non-pilots alike.
Check out the videos and blogs, sign up for a webinar, or join us for a flight.


General Aviation opens up a whole world that most people don't even know exists - and it's not all about flying the plane. It's the unforgetable sights and exotic locations and unique experiences that become possible with our little plane.
 
Here is a short video that shows off two of our favourite Vancouver experiences that are made possible by our trusty Cessna. It shows off the Sand Piper resort, within 20 minutes of Vancouver, and the spectacular beach at Parksville (only an hour away) ... two unforgetable places many Vancouverites have no idea about. (make sure your audio is turned on)
