 Coastal Pacific Aviation

Who we are . . 


Coastal Pacific Aviation (CPA) is a premier Canadian pilot training facility operating out of Abbotsford International Airport.  CPA was originally certified for flight training operations in 1973 , and in 1983 began a relationship with the University of the Fraser Valley to integrate professional pilot training with post-secondary education.  This relationship—which continues today—has produced hundreds of professional pilot graduates who simultaneously qualified with either a Bachelor of Business Administration or Business Diploma with a specialty in Aviation.  In 2017 CPA became certified for the prestigious Integrated Airline Transport Pilot Licence Program.



  • We focus on training efficiency and quality. 

  • We have 20 aircrafts and 8 simulators to help you finish your training in timely manner.

  • We have a team of 20 instructors who care about your training and make sure that you achieve your aviation goals. 

  • We are located at Abbotsford International Airport. This exposes you to the airline operation. Abbotsford airport is also fairly close to a practice area (Sumas). This reduces the cost and time of your training. 

  • We have our own maintenance shop to ensure that all our aircrafts are well-maintained and running safely.
