Safety is our first priority

Our standard: Above & Beyond
Just like you, pilots want to fly and land safely. Please take time to read the documents below related to seaplane safety before you fly


prepare, communicate, maintain.

Every day we go through standard, tested, checklists and procedures to maintain best practice maintenance and safety. Canada is a world leader in transportation standards and Fort Langley Air is Transport Canada certified and compliant. Seaplane safety is our first priority.


Prepare to fly safely. 
At FLA, safety is a fundamental part of our culture and our number one priority daily, in every move we make.

Before you fly:
Your pilot and crew have been thoroughly trained in seaplane safety and will provide you with a passenger safety briefing before each flight. Please listen carefully and feel free to ask questions. Transport Canada’s Passenger Safety Guide is available on this page in .pdf form, and as a brochure in our office.

Transport Canada has prepared important seaplane safety information and videos for seaplane passengers, available to you on their website. We have provided some links on this page.
