Welcome to the Calgary Flying Club
Located along the spectacular Foothills of the Canadian Rockies, the Calgary Flying Club has been a hub of aviation activity, friendship and learning Since 1927
Private Pilot License
This is the first step of your flight training. Though your PPL you will learn about meteorology, navigation, theory of flight, Canadian Aviation Regulations and flight operations. We have 11 C-172 and many instructors to make sure our students have the best experience.
Commercial Pilot License
All our flight lessons are now scenario based to better prepare you for the real world and taught by one of our senior instructors.
Our Multi-instrument program was recently redesigned to insure our students get to experience all kinds of different situations to help them become industry ready.
Where do I start?
Come down and have tour of our facility with one of our friendly front desk staff. Get a feel for where everything is and how the club works. Next get yourself registered while you’re at the club, let us know what types of rating and licensing you’re interested in. As your filling in the registration form we will set up your first ground briefing with an instructor. We will also sign you up for the next upcoming ground-school classes. The Club has year round ground school and it starts every nine weeks.

Our Flying Club
The Calgary Flying Club is located at the Springbank Airport which is a five minute drive west of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The Club is nestled in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies and only a short drive from Banff National Park. Becoming a Club Member is easy. An annual membership in the Calgary Flying Club costs only $75 (plus GST). You don’t have to be a pilot to be a part of the Club. In fact, more than half of our members don’t fly – they just love having fun and want to help the Club promote public interest in aviation. You also don’t have to live in Calgary. The Club has many members who live all over the World.
Members are permitted full access to the Club’s facilities, training resources, and rental aircraft. Members also receive a discount on aviation fuel purchased at the Club. Our clubhouse amenities include fuel and oil sales, a fully licensed restaurant as well as a pilot’s lounge and classroom space.
