About the SFU Aviation Club
Started up in the Fall of 2012, The SFU Aviation Club is a group of people composed of pilots and non-pilots alike who have come together with the intent of promoting and exploring the wonders of aviation and the aviation industry. We strive to help aviation enthusiasts and professionals connect in an environment of community and camaraderie through engaging activities such as the YVR Control Tower tour, familiarization flights, fly outs, ground school, icebreakers, pub nights, etc.
Come, fly with us and enjoy the stunning views of the Lower Mainland – the distant Mt. Baker to the east, or the calm stillness of Pitt Lake, just north of Pitt Meadows airport. Take a short flight over to Victoria International and grab a bite at the Dakota Cafe, or to Chilliwack and discover the bliss of their famous pies! If, of course, you’re not interested in flight itself, you can join us and learn about airport operations, air traffic control, airplane design, theory of flight. But, if none of this catches your fancy, you can always come out with us to a social and talk to us at the Highland Pub or during one of our socials – we’d love to hear from you!
