Aviation is a dynamic industry with exciting growth opportunities for people with the right technical and business skills.

In partnership with Coastal Pacific Aviation, a renowned local flight training company, the University of the Fraser Valley offers a two-year Aviation diploma to help you kick start your career in this expanding industry.

As part of your aviation training, you enjoy over 135 hours of flight training in Cessna single engine and Piper multi-engine aircrafts to add to the hours you've logged while earning your private pilot license. You also benefit from up to 115 hours of simulator training in a variety of simulators, including a Navajo and Beechcraft King Air.

Once you graduate, you have both the technical skills and business background required to attract the attention of potential airplane employers or on-demand aviation service providers, both in Canada and worldwide. Or you may decide to pursue a Bachelor of Business Administration in Aviation  to increase your potential for career advancement, if you wish to become an operations manager or a senior airline or airport administrator.
