I completed my basic 7 hour float rating here in the spring of 2019. These guys have great airplanes, great instructors and a great program overall. I’m now flying a beaver for a living in Manitoba and the real world training that these guys provide has been relevant and useful for me. I cannot recommend anyone else for float training. I am from Alberta so I was staying in a hotel as I did the float rating, and Fort Langley did everything in their power to get my rating completed as soon as possible so I wasn’t spending any more than necessary on accommodations. 11/10!
