Hi Blueclavius,

While I have moved on from instructing, I did have the opportunity to work in the Lower Mainland as an instructor for about 5.5 years. Depending on where you live and how far you're willing to drive, I might be able to provide some insight about good places vs. not so good places!

Long story short, there are a lot of good schools to pick from. My advice would be to visit a number of schools and see if there is one that stands out for you. Often, a good keen instructor will be able to make your decision easier!

-Boundary Bay - forgive me if I leave some out

Canadian Flight Centre
Professional Flight Centre
Montair
Pacific Flying Club

Overall negatives about Boundary Bay though include how busy it actually is there, which can slow training, and how far you have to fly to get to a suitable training area. Often, it can be so busy at the airport that aircraft are not cleared to depart for circuit training (take-off and landing practice) and have to sit on the ground or just cancel. As well, in order to get to a training area where most of the in-flight practice occurs, you have to fly over one of two other airports; Langley or Pitt Meadows. This time transiting back and forth from Boundary Bay to the training areas is often wasteful, and adds to the overall cost and time it takes for you to complete your training.

- Langley -

SkyQuest
Langley Flying School

Although it's a bit of a drive if you live in Van, getting out to Langley can be beneficial in reducing the time wasted going back and forth from the airport to the practice area. Langley has a short runway, which can make learning to land initially more challenging, but once you master them, you can land anywhere! While I did work there and am therefore biased, I would definitely recommend SkyQuest. Go out and have a look for yourself and you'll see why. Good school, good machines, good people.

- Pitt Meadows -

Pacific Rim Aviation

As with Langley, might be worth the drive depending on where you live. Pacific Rim is also a good school.

- Abbotsford -

Coastal Pacific Aviation

Also biased as I worked here as well, but very good school. Coastal mostly caters to their college program with the University of the Fraser Valley, but also does train people that are not interested in that aspect of aviation. Abbotsford is a great training airport; busy, but not too busy like Boundary Bay. Big runways, close to practice areas, and a nice mix of small and large aircraft traffic.

Hope some of this info helped. Again, go and spend an afternoon and have a look around. As it stands right now, there are not really any \"bad\" schools in the Lower Mainland right now (there have been in the past!). Find an instructor that you get along with and tries hard, and you'll do fine wherever you choose to go.

Best of luck.

Thanks for the information.

I have done 51 hours PUT, about 2 1/2 hours P1 so far, of a JAA PPL and live in the UK.

I stopped training about 12 months ago, as work got in the way.

Fast forward 12 months and we have just got our PR to Canada.

We'll be moving over to BC end of this year.

I will definitely visit the schools you mentioned.

Just need to decide, if it is worth continuing a JAA PPL then convert to a Canadian one.

Or start again on a Canadian ppl course.

If you are nearly finished the JAA licence I might recommend that you do that then convert to the Canadian PPL. Transferring a foreign licence to a Canadian PPL is quite easy; simply submit your logbook and documents and write a small exam (PSTAR). Converting the other way may not be so simple. I'm not sure how easy it is to convert a Canadian PPL to a JAA PPL; often people converting their commercial or ATPL have a long and difficult process trying to aquire the JAA licence. Might be worth looking into. I would contact Transport Canada (www.tc.gc.ca) for some advice. Again, good luck!
