An Introductory Flight, also called Familiarization (FAM) Flight, is essentially a regular flight lesson where you will be flying under the supervision of a Flight Instructor. During the flight, you will be treated just like a regular student pilot, taking control of the aircraft. You will get to log the flight just like a regular lesson and will get a chance to see how you like the flying. Introductory Flight is also a good opportunity to chat with other students and flight instructors and learn more about flying as a career.

Cessna 152

Cessna 152 Fleet

The 2-seat Cessna 152 is a strong, stable, and durable aircraft. Its lower horsepower engine may provide a gentler learning curve for beginner pilots. The Cessna 152’s smaller size can also be beneficial for practicing precision maneuvers. Together with an exceptional safety record, the Cessna 152 offers an excellent training environment. We operate 10 Cessna 152 aircraft at our Boundary Bay facility.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Can I bring a passenger with me?

    Absolutely! Passengers can fly with you at no additional cost! Note that each aircraft has a maximum capacity, so number of passengers are limited. Please confirm passenger number and weight with our Dispatch team before finalizing the flight.

    Can I bring a pet with me?
