Aurora Aviation Academy

Since 2019, Aurora Aviation Academy has been delivering top quality pilot training to our Guests. That word “Guests” is key to the Pilot Training experience at Aurora. Rather than treating a Pilot as a “Student” (perhaps perceived as lucky to get a spot in our program), we treat our student pilots as “Guests”, whom we are lucky to have with us. We offer the full range of Pilot Training Programs, from Recreational, Private, Commercial, Instructor Rating, Multi-Engine, IFR, Multi-IFR, Advanced training and through Air Transport Pilot. Our Academy began with training from our Corporate Headquarters, at the Vernon Regional Airport, and we now offer all of our Pilot Training Programs from four locations: Chilliwack, Kamloops, Kelowna and Vernon. Aurora Aviation Academy is an approved BC Private Education Institution, which allows our career oriented student pilots to make use of student loans, RESP funds, etc. to assist in funding their Pilot Training Programs.
