OUR BASE

Abbotsford International Airport (CYXX) is a controlled airfield with two large runways and a flight training area located 5 minutes away from lift-off, which reduces flight training costs. 

Abbotsford Airport is one of the fastest-growing airports in Canada. Our students will be immersed in a commercial flying environment as well as having access to full coverage for instrument flying and a large number of different instrument procedures.

FIRST THINGS FIRST

It is important to schedule an appointment with a Transport Canada certified medical examiner to obtain the medical certificate appropriate for the type of flying you intend to do. Although you can start your training journey without this certificate, you will not be able to fly solo, which could delay your training.
