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 combined flight training with academic instruction—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 defined a unique role within the Canadian aviation community, launched along the path behind hundreds of graduates who have set course on successful and rewarding professional pilot careers. Coastal Pacific Aviation is now recognized internationally for the excellent aviation training and education. Coastal Pacific Aviation is especially proud of the many graduates now working at all levels of the aviation industry.
