Pacific Professional Flight Centre: what do users think?
tim c: To be more specific with my review:The previous owner, John Montgomery and his wife left a few years ago. It used to feel like a family owned business but as a student, you'll really just feel like a number. If you want to feel ignored then this is the school for you! If you want to bring up a concern with the CFI or the "assistant cfi" good luck because theyre apparently "too busy" which just tells me that they have wayy too many students!! I would stay clear and look elsewhere if you want a positive learning environment!This school used to be good but like others have said, it's declined ever since new management took over (around 2018ish). The clerks at the front desk aren't very helpful either. I got my PPL there but wouldn't go back.
Nirmal Babu: Best place to learn how to fly. Flight instructors there are just 🙌🏻
Vinutha Cheruku: Had a great experience! Looking forward to many more! ✨
Alissa Hassan: If you want to be MILKED for money and hours and not get your license for a good year and half and help your instructor get pic hours and have them over charge you for briefs they didn’t do then this is the place to be!But wait it doesn’t stop there, the instructors may in some cases even physically and verbally assault you in the cockpit (speaking from personal experience) and make you aimlessly build dual hoursBut guess what the cfi knows but does nothing about itThey just care about money and the instructors see you as their personal atms.Also honourable mention goes to their dispatch staff straight up rude and act like they run the place (they’re students at the school as well but put themselves above the other students like they’re higher class citizens of the school) its as if they get paid to goof around and attend to their personal agendas rather than attend to the students need or address the concerns of potential customers.You can stay up till 12 am to book your desired aircraft a month prior only for dispatch to change it last minute because they or one their friends want to fly that specific aircraft and be put on standby and believe me (as a former student) it was hardly ever changed cuz of maintenance or for a flight test.In conclusion, yes they are a really big and famous school but dont live up to their previous reputation at all they have a plethora of issues but it would make the review far too long so save your money and time and look into other BETTER schools. I absolutely do not recommend. I would give it zero stars but they don’t have that option.PS before they comment this is false claims made by a competing school id like to say, yes this is a burner account because i would like to remain anonymous as i was victim of said assault at this school but will gladly name check if need be.
Adam Robertson: This is a very professional and wonderful place to do Flight Training. Everybody is helpful, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable. They have a well maintained large fleet of Cessna 172s and 152s. Looking forward to fly the Cirrus this summer. I would highly recommend them to anyone that's looking for flight training.
Poul Go: I finished all my pilot training including instructor's rating at Pro. Extremely grateful of my time here with them, from being a student pilot to becoming a flight instructor. They molded me as a person and as pilot throughout those years, and easily were some of my most memorable flying experiences. When I moved on to become a Medevac First Officer in Manitoba, I can finally attest that the IFR training I received from them was top notch. Never a doubt it had the branding of "Pro IFR". Pro has some of the best methods, lessons and instructors in the industry. It helped me transition and become a good First Officer, hand flying a Metroliner Aircraft. I will be forever grateful. Those in the know, train with Pro!
Waleed zafar: Hello!I'm a new international student here, but I haven't started my ground school yet.But I must say staff was so helpful, whenever I mailed them they replied to me and helped me and guided me properly that's why I'm here in Canada.
Abbey Moore: Corrupt organization. If I can rate zero stars I would.. This place discriminates and is the most Unprofessional place. The owner needs to reign in and handle what goes on at this "school".
Khush J: Great flight training experience!!
savio sabu: One of the best flight schools in lower mainland with an amazing fleet of aircrafts.
Ijas Naraparambil Najeeb: The staff were really professional and had fun flying to Campbell River.
Zafrul Siddique: It used to be a good place for learning to fly, BUT……It quickly deteriorates since 2018. The dispatch at this place have way too much power, beyond that all what they do is gossip, judging students at the back, and some instructors do not play very positive roles here, including overcharging students on ground, play preferences over certain students.A portion of students, such as Louise, finished all his trainings in really short time, where all other student who started way earlier than him, cannot even get a training slot at all!The management team serious have to do something, the dispatch has really messed everything up.
SSMustafa 267: I did email them a few times and they did respond promptly, the management seems friendly.
Walter R: What an amazing experience. Three of us did the introductory flight here. It was such an amazing time flying the Cirrus aircraft. Thank you for giving us a taste of the pilot life! Some of us will be getting our training soon I’m sure!
If Yuchil: The training costs are getting higher and higher.
Shreyash Patel: Really great for flight training, I've done my cpl and ppl training from here. The fleet for 172 and 152 are sufficient.
Amirhossein Samimi (Amir): My great flight school
Kenneth kosi Etukokwu: Best flight training school ever..thou I am yet to start my flight training in the school..I wish they give half scholarship and my parents will do the rest...so I can start my training ASAP..
RJ Kaloti: Critical:Communication,Quality,Value
Anam Hussain: Had fun flying thier Piper Warrior. Fun experience.
Mehdi Haloui: This school has been running for years. From what i've experienced, Staff is Friendly and helpful ! I believe they have good instructors although quite young, mine is one of the best ! It is also a busy school, but if you are serious about your training you will progress fast and get Valuable skills.

Imran Ismail: Came in to buy Mr. Cullhane's Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) examination prep and ground school book. Had a good conversation about Aviation and succeeded in passing Transport Canada's ATPL exams.At the time of this review. Both books are around CAD $450. With the steep cost for his materials. I am glad I made the investment on his preparation books.His books covers at least 90% of the knowledge required for the ATPL exams. When in doubt about the answer in the practice exam books. After writing a practice exam. Sections are assigned to the question. For quick referencing within the ground school book.As a current flight instructor on the West Coast. I recommend his ATPL exam preparation books to be included in your library and resources.

Bee Hill: Great flying school
Ana Lovely: I’ve never been in a plane before and my boyfriend took me first as he a student here! And I loved it! The staff SUPER friendly planes are very well taken care of I’m very pleased with the experience and would go back again!
Scott Trowell: Great experience, this is a one stop shop to get it all done the right way. They are often busy but that is for good reason. Also, prices are more than competitive for the lower mainland.
Mathew Glen: I have done all of my flying at this school and I have never had any issues. Ive been treated fairly and and kindly. 10/10 would fly again :P

Canadian Flight Centre: what do users think?
Nirwan Marasinghe: I have sent multiple emails requesting Information for the flight training during this week. No one replied me so far. I am very disappointed. A student also told me that they have no communication at all with the students and thers no really guidance.
Nikolay Chernyavskiy: it was an incredibly exciting aero journey. thank you to “Canadian Flight Center” for this opportunity and pilot Santiago for a safe and comfortable flight, for quality professional technical work! see you again and use your services. how many other interesting things around from the air space.
Striker: Money trap for international student.School will charge you extra money for everything. They will refuse to refund the money you paid in advance! They will charge you for tax forms which is illegal!Their maintenance is a complete joke. The PRM is telling students to test flight not airwothy planes.I have spoken with well over 20 students in the last 5 years with this school. Not to mention their CFI who is stripped of her examiner license. School is a complete joke
Chris Prie: As a concerned individual, I feel compelled to share my feedback regarding my experience at this institution. Unfortunately, I have encountered issues that have left me with a sense of dissatisfaction.Firstly, there have been concerns about the handling of financial matters, with a perception that money is being misappropriated from students. Additionally, there have been instances where employees have not been compensated fully and have not been treated with the respect they deserve.In particular, I have encountered challenges with Anna, who has displayed a lack of professionalism and has exhibited arrogant behavior towards employees. It appears that her actions are often driven by personal gain rather than genuine concern for others, and profanity has been used frequently in interactions with employees.Furthermore, there have been allegations of fraudulent practices involving paperwork, as well as students, and employees. This has contributed to an overall negative experience at this place, making it the worst I have encountered.I urge others to be cautious when considering studying or working here. Review posted on google are given before there FT by students as that’s what Anna asks them to do….FAKE!!!!!!
Alex Jidelev: I've had a blast doing my multi engine rating in CFC and I've got my letter of recommend at only 8.7 hours. I am saying "only", because I was doing this rating after my 9-5 work flying twice a week, so initially I thought that multi will take me around 12 hours to get to flight test standards. But their super effective program and talented instructors helped to get this rating in very efficient manner. Looking forward to IFR rating with CFC.Edit:Just finished my Instrument Group 1 with CFC. It was a blast. While I was able to fly only once a week, CFC was able to bring me to (and above) TC standard only within 7 flights. I am extremely happy and 100% recommend.
Peter U: Chartered a flight to Tofino for a day so I could propose to my then girlfriend (now fiancée). Roger went above and beyond in making the experience as memorable and enjoyable as possible. Anyone looking to charter a plane should ask for Roger.
Bert Mickalyk: After ~10yr break I decided to continue on with PPL training and certification. Instructor (James Trounce) accepted me as a student and extremely knowledgeable and patient as I refreshed and improved my fundamentals and progressed to receive my permit. The staff is friendly, atmosphere is welcoming, and an excellent selection of planes to work with. (Such a great improvement from my previous learning center.) I highly recommend training at this fantastic school for anyone just starting out or wants to just dial in on previous skills. I’ve finally found the place to finish this license and potentially continue my aviation education.
Jared Baigent: Such an amazing experience flying with Anna!She is a very kind and genuine person. If you ever want to go fly and want to try aerobatics, I definitely recommend CFC
Sean T: Positive:ProfessionalismPedro!!!!!!
S Shea: Great experience on a checkout flight. The chair flying prior to the flight was thorough and fair. Pitt Meadows is a nice place to fly, you are far enough away from Vancouver to enjoy flying and not worrying about radios and a lot of traffic.
Bbsito Beyo: Nice instructors, nice teachers with a big experience and knowledge, airplanes in very good conditions on a airport with calm winds and great weather!!
Matvey Ivanov: Positive:Quality,ValueDoing PPL with Canadian Flight Centre - very happy with the service. Keep it up!
Chi “Tinman”: The school does a notable job at teaching its students to always look and learn to think efficiently and collectively- questions asked are always answered as well! As long as you are willing to put in your own effort into said program (in my case PPL), it definitely pays off for both yourself and the school staff.Shoutout to my instructor Johnny Zhang who has greatly assisted me in my training by offering additional flight sessions and opportunities whenever possible, as well as dispatch (Jaspreet) and the senior flight staff (Pedro, Peter, Kaizer) for their guidance as well!
Dilreen Gill: Canadian Flight Centre has so far proven to be way better than my expectations. The instructors are extremely helpful, especially James Richard Trounce who i have been training with for my CPL. He always goes the extra mile to assist you and is readily available for any questions. Can't wait for him to start training IFR students toooo. Also, the aircrafts are readily available and they have an amazing fleet, the staff is very welcoming. Definitely recommend CFC if you wish to train efficiently and finish at a quick pace.
roger201288: Very friendly and knowledgeable staff including, the flight instructors Kaizer, Taka, and Pedro, the dispatchers Jaspreet and Mani, and of course the owners; as well as all other employees whose name I do not know. The maintenance staff are great guys as well.Edit:After attending the school more frequently these last few months I have learned the names of the rest of the staff that make CFC great; as well as acquired a new instructor. James Trounce is an excellent teacher with thoughtful explanations and has a clear passion for what he does and how he is present for his students. I have also had the pleasure of socializing with other instructors such James Oh, Johnny, Sergi, and the dispatch staff, Ananya and another kind dispatcher who is new and whose name i have forgotten.
M: I've heard that one of the best things that can happen to you in your journey of become a pilot is landing on a great instructor. I've been one of the lucky ones and can attest to that 100%. A great instructor can make you fall in love with learning to fly or dread every flight. With patience, knowledge and diverse learning techniques, James Trounce has made my experience memorable, comfortable and wonderful. I just hope he starts teaching IFR soon as I'll be seeking him out in not too long.
Aj Wyeth: Positive:Communication,Professionalism,Value
1anton711: Real good !
Vova K: Positive:Communication,ProfessionalismPedro is a wonderful instructor, he has helped my friend from Vice media get a lot better at flying! Definitely recommend this flying school.
Tyler Kleine: Positive:Professionalism

Langley Flying School, Inc.: what do users think?
Kane Gill: I still didn’t get to go flying because my owner still doesn’t have his license thanks a lot Langley flying school ✌🏻 bigger and better things coming we don’t deal with planes that don’t turn on only brand new ! 😉
Arvin Gill: They got new planes but extra people 😂 thanks Langley flying school on showing the true colours ✌🏻
Matthew Ferguson: My daughter and I went on a flight with a pilot named Rakesh and I couldn't be more impressed. He was very kind, and encouraged my daughter to enjoy the trip and taught her lots about flying. I caution parents that after a flight like this, your children will very likely become extremely happy and excited to become a pilot!! Can't wait to take my younger daughter when she is old enough. Thank you Rakesh for the wonderful memories!
Hank Jones: Rakesh was a very personable and smooth pilot. He showed us awesome mountain views, performed fun maneuvers, and even let me have the controls for part of the flight. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who is curious about flying.
samoo 89: Called to ask about prices seems that the agent doesn't want share any pricing untill I fill application!
Б.Шинэбаяр: I’ve been taking a few lessons here, very friendly instructor
Kaleb renicks: Good school with good instructors. Everyone is nice and I would recommend Lfs to anyone looking to get their ppl.
Cristian Flores: Went for my first flight today with Rakesh and it was great. He was very informative and friendly and made it a very welcoming and fun experience. I look forward to continuing my lessons here at Langley flying school and pursuing my PPL.
Sam park: very kind place
Harveer Bajwa: Save yourself and go somewhere else.Had a difficult time getting in touch with the school and start dates were delayed 2/2 times.Paid for the instructor rating program but never even received an acceptance letter or a returned/dated contract. The administration is pretty useless. Only ended up getting 50% of my money back even though I never flew with them…
David A: As a mature student with a long-lapsed PPL attending for recurrency I appreciated the courteous professionalism of Aaron the CFI and my instructor Sammit. Assignments were clear, Sammit was very patient and gave good demos and explanations. He always made communication easy by being available for arrangements and questions via text. He always listened carefully to my questions and gave clear answers. He was helpful about things I needed to improve and complimented me when I did well. Vancouver VTA radio workload challenged me, and I would benefit from a more structured approach to operating the radios. Time between flights was often longer than I wished as there seemed to be several instructors, many students and few aircraft. This wouldn't likely have been such a problem if I had chosen to book a string of frequent flights well in advance, and part of the time it was due to unforeseeable mechanical down time. Overall a very good experience. I will return confidently for further instruction.
Juliana Pondé Barreto: I did an intro flight with Adam and it was amazing! It was such and incredible experience, the flight was smooth and I felt really safe the whole time! I really recommend it. Cheers!
Penny Girl: Positive:Professionalism,Quality,ValueFlew with Adam today as a first timer. It was amazing!!! Felt very safe and comfortable. So much fun. Is definitely something I'm going to do again. Thanks so much Adam for a wonderful first experience.
Henry: 飞行博物馆很棒
Jim Stephenson: My brother did his PPL here and is now flying as a first officer for Cathay Pacific.
Mitsy Singh: Things seem to be changing for the good. Communication level has definitely improved, as Dave is back. Everything seems to be much more organized now, than over the last few months. Ground school experience was good, except one hiccup but that was resolved on bringing up as well.
Guillaume Belanger: So much potential in this school but not making the cut right now. It appears very difficult to fly as very limited to no availabilities for the planes. Ground school students are taking for ever to get hours in. This is definitely not an accelerated flight school.
Elizabeth Taruc: The school is incredibly disorganised since the new owners took over. Praise to a few of the flight instructors who make it worth while to be here.If I hadn't already put money into this school, I never would have come here.Poor communication, poor organisation and zero structure.
Zenon Garnett: I did my commercial pilot's license here, as well as my multi engine and instrument rating. Dave Parry is an amazing teacher and excellent pilot, I tried several other schools and no one can teach like him. Unfortunately he is a very busy man and his time is usually booked up, but he is the best of the best!
Robert Serena: Never had any issues with the school. Robin W is a great instructor. He’s also my only instructor I’ve had at the school. Except Barry did my first flight and he is Aldo awesome. His mush stash is glorious.
Ehsan Esfahanian: I did my multi engine rating with David (Chief Flying Instructor) at Langley Flying School and it was the best training experience of all my flight training. Ever since that rating, my general flying significantly improved. David's teaching experience taught me things I don't think I could have learnt with some of the young instructors at other flying schools. I highly recommend this school. It is like family here. Their aircraft hourly rates are very fair. Langley is one hour drive for me compared to Boundary bay which is 20 minutes. I still go here even though there are many flying schools in Boundary Bay.

Sea Land Air: what do users think?
Monica Samson: I recently took an intro flight at Sea Land Air and had the best experience! The school was very professional and my instructor Halle was amazing. She was very encouraging, took her time to answer all my questions, and educated me about what is done pre and post flight. It was a fun experience trying out Diamond Aircraft. Highly recommend this school!
Stelian Iantchev: Positive:Communication,Professionalism,Quality,ValueI had amazing experience. Strongly recommend!
j ERVINE: Sealand Air is the only school in boundary bay that operates Diamond Aircraft and offers a wide range of courses all the way from PPL to CPL and Multi - IFR. The staff and instructors are friendly, skilled, and unless under safety concerns, always puts the students best interest at priority. The only issue I have with this place is how small the business is so students have to fight head over heels for planes and instrctors.
Stefan Scott: I have flying experience both in CL and BC. If in the US, which is typical in schools under Part 141, your flight instructor seeks to get rid of you as soon as possible and finish the training program, since he or she is very busy with Chinese and Indian students, in Canada every instructor regardless of their good or broken English deems it an honor to slow down your training progress and rip out much more money from your wallet. In fact, I had to recommend this school to a friend taking into account his love to Diamond fleet, the status of permanent resident in Canada, housing in Vancouver, a standing job with good income, his no hurry and leisure to the study.
Esther Wong: Love it
Wong Jhon: This is a terrible flight school in BC. There are Japanese or Chinese flight instructors who can not speak Enhlish perfectly. They teach you how to flight in broken English. Its too hard to understand what they are talking about. Also they try to overcharge you. Dont waste your money and time.
