What People Say About Cooking Lake Aviation

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.

Awesome school to fly with. I just finished my PPL through them. They were extremely accommodating for my busy schedule.

The best flight school I have attended in Canada! Most welcoming environment and professional atmosphere striving for safety! Very important in aviation. Instructors and CFI are very respectful and always help. They go the extra mile!

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!

Cooking Lake Aviation is a great place to train as a pilot! Instructors are friendly, knowledgeable and they make flying a positive experience. Keep up the good work!

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!
