Aviation Degree or Diploma Programs
What you will Achieve from this Program
When you complete this program, you will obtain a Commercial Pilot Licence, a Multi-engine Class Rating, and a Group 1 (Multi-engine) Instrument Rating OR a Flight Instructor Rating issued by Transport Canada, as well as an Aviation Business Diploma or Degree.
Students electing to enroll in the Integrated Airline Transport Pilot Program will automatically qualify as an Airline Transport Pilot Licence upon completion of 1500 hours flying experience within 5 years of graduation.
The pilot qualifications earned through the degree and diploma programs are described on the following links: Private Pilot Licence; Commercial Pilot Licence; Multi-engine Class Rating; Group 1 (Multi-engine) Instrument Rating; Flight Instructor Rating; Airline Transport Pilot Licence.
Overview of Pilot Training and Academic Studies
These programs are delivered in conjunction with the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) and provide full professional pilot qualification from Coastal Pacific Aviation (CPA), simultaneously with post-secondary qualification in Aviation Business—either the 2-year Diploma, or the 4-year Degree provided by the UFV School of Business.
UFV recently restructured the credit allocation for student pilots, and now provides for maximum flexibility in training timelines, but perhaps even more significant, the restructuring now permits students to complete their Commercial Pilot Licence and Flight Instructor Rating, enabling them to teach flying during while they completing their senior years at UFV. Students completing the UFV programs—either the degree or diploma program—now have the opportunity to graduate with the benefit of professional flying experience in their log books.
In short, the restructured UFV degree and diploma programs provide for co-ordinated delivery of both UFV classroom work and CPA pilot training whereby the pilot ground training and air training is conducted either during the UFV semester schedule, or during the summer months from April to September when UFV classes are closed. Some students even elect to dedicate a full year to their pilot training prior to starting classes at UFV—the overall idea is that there are many ways to customize your options to co-ordinating the pilot training of CPA and the classwork of UFV, and, if you plan it carefully, obtain working commercial pilot experience at the same time.
A final consideration relates to CPA's integrated Airline Transport Pilot Licence Program. For the first time, UVF students are given the opportunity to complete their aviation degree or diploma while earning a frozen Airline Transport Pilot Licence.
The important consideration before you start the UFV program is to plan your course configurations to give you maximum advantage:
Variations in these configurations can be found at the following link: Course Configurations for the BBA and Diploma programs.

Estimated Training Costs
The following are the minimum estimated cost for students based on Transport Canada's minimum requirements. Please keep in mind that the above pricing is subject to change without notice—this permits the school to respond timely to significant fluctuations in aviation fuel costs. Importantly, Coastal Pacific Aviation does not charge students with a fuel surcharge—a practice common with flight schools whereby the added cost of fuel is not published on websites under training costs.
