Coastal Pacific Aviation was incorporated in 1973 and began offering the highest quality flight training in 1974. The company grew at a conservative but consistent rate until late 1979 when it began working on a program that developed flight training techniques with academic instruction to produce a proficient commercial pilot. These efforts resulted in the joint venture agreement with The University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) to provide programs leading to an aviation diploma or degree together with a commercial pilot licence with multi-engine and instrument rating privileges. With this program between UFV and Coastal Pacific Aviation, we have defined a unique role within the Canadian aviation community. Coastal Pacific Aviation is also recognized internationally for the excellent aviation training and education. Coastal Pacific Aviation is proud of the many graduates now working at all levels of the aviation industry.
Abbotsford International Airport (CYXX) has light traffic, a control tower, and local practice areas. The region offers a variety of important training features such as mountains, the Pacific Ocean, international airspace, and the United States border.
We have graduates from all around the world and instructors from China, Korea, Nigeria, England, Vietnam，Russia and India.
