Been flying here for 15 years. Excellent school with a modern fleet of G1000 aircraft that are the best maintained I’ve seen in the US or Canada. Definitely the best place for flight training in the Edmonton area.

I did my private pilot training at Cooking Lake Aviation and am just starting my commercial license training now. My experience there has been fantastic. I wouldn’t change a thing about it. The atmosphere is positive, fun, and supportive and the instructors are so patient and helpful. They have beautiful planes, too. I highly recommend it!

Excellent flight school, did all my training from Private all the way to Commercial, Multi and IFR. Aircraft are extremely well kept, rates are very reasonable and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Thanks to the wealth of knowledge I gained here I’m now flying commercially and loving it!
