Fly the Fort! Join the 500+ pilots that we have trained to fly seaplanes at the Fort. Home of two DHC-2 Beavers.
Since the 1960’s, pilot careers have been taking off from Fort Langley. In 1999, John Ferguson started certifying float plane pilots at Fort Langley Air. Our experienced instructors offer dual yoke training on the Cessna 180 or the legendary De Havilland Beaver, DHC-2. We are the only place on the BC Coast where pilots can access training time on a DHC-2 Beaver. Check out our 50-hour course.
