Pacific Rim Aviation Academy operates from CYPK. Pitt Meadows Airport is the ideal location in BC to start your dream of flight. Our flight centre offers easy and efficient access to the apron, maneuvering areas and active runways saving you valuable training time. Two designated and approved practice areas are within moments of the airport. Avoid wasting time lining up for take-off or holding in the circuit like pilots training at Boundary Bay or other less efficient operational centres.
We provide tailor-made programs to suit your schedule and fulfill your dreams towards:
- Recreational Pilot Permit
- Private Pilot License
- Commercial Pilot License
- Night Rating
- VFR OTT Rating
- Float Rating, whether it’s a basic 7-hour Transport Canada requirement, 25-hour of top experience, or even our full 50-hour Professional Seaplane Pilot course
- Multi and Multi-IFR training
We have our own AMO that maintains our aircrafts in peak condition. They also cater to the mechanical needs of privately owned aircraft.
Our fleet (as of 2009-10) consists of:
- 1 C150
- 1 C152
- 4 C172
- 1 Seaplane C172
Our facility also recently installed a brand new MFD Simulator with 180 vision, that can be configured to match the equipment and performance of your training aircraft of choice. Take your Ground School at our Pitt Meadows Airport Facility, Hangar #393 - 18799 Airport Way. Or in the city at Suite 204-1410 Marine Drive, North Vancouver. Chris Georgas will be your teacher/entertainer for these weekly evenings of discovery.
