What People Say About Cooking Lake Aviation Academy Flight School
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.
Chad is very informative, friendly and professional. Always a great flying experience!
