Course DescriptionAviation 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.
UFV's Aviation diploma mixes classroom studies, in-air flight training, and simulator training. You earn your commercial pilot license certified by Transport Canada and undergo multi-engine and instrument training.
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.
