What is a Fam Flight at Pacific Flying Club?

If you’ve ever dreamed of flying, climb aboard this unique experience. You can book a 30-minute Introductory Flying Lesson with one of our qualified Flight Instructors and discover what flying is all about! 

Experience a 30-40 minutes flight from the right seat of a Cessna 152 or 172. You will take off from Boundary Bay Airport and fly over the White Rock area. And here is the exciting part — the flight instructor will let you take control of the aircraft to feel what it’s like to fly a plane! 

You will get the feel of some basic maneuvers. The scenery from above will be new for you. Compared to commercial flights, you will be closer to the ground with a bird’s view of your surroundings. 

This flight is considered a “Training Flight” by Transport Canada and is a “one-on-one” flight. Therefore, if you try a four-passenger Cessna 172, no other passengers are permitted on this flight. The Cessna 152 is a two-seater.

The Cessna 152 is an easy aircraft to fly with little vices, presenting few difficulties to most pilots. Most people do their initial training on the 152 as it is more economical. But if you are tall, you may find the bigger 172 more practical.

If you try Cessna 172, you will fly the most-produced aircraft ever. Since production began in 1956, over 43000 Cessna 172s have been built.

We have 29 aircraft in our fleet. To see and read about all of them, visit this page.
