Aviation Open House – Oct 28, 2017

Join us at Cooking Lake Airport on Oct 28, 2017 for a day of fun and flying from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. We will have a free BBQ and discounted discovery flights ($80+gst) all day. You are also welcome to check out our aircraft and try your hand at flying our simulator as well.


Directions - How do I find Cooking Lake Aviation?

Cooking Lake Airport / Cooking Lake Aviation
69, 51401 Range Road 221
Sherwood Park, AB, T8E 1H1

Traveling Eastbound from Edmonton on Highway 14, turn northbound on Range 222 then take your second right on Township Road 514. There will be a service road on the North Side of the airport to find the Hanger. Google Maps is your friend 😉

What time should I be there?

We'll have a couple airplanes set aside for discovery flight along with food and drinks provided from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Come by anytime to check out the facilities, learn more about the Aviation Diploma Program and do a Discovery Flight. Expect to spend about an hour of time there.

What can I expect and what does a Discovery Flight entail?

We will be providing information about the Aviation Diploma program and how to become a pilot along with discounted Discovery Flights.  This allows you and up to 2 friends to do a 30 min flight with our certified instructors. This mini-flight lesson will give you an opportunity to fly the aircraft and get a hands-on feel on what it's like to be a pilot under the supervision of a flight instructor. Our Discovery Flights are always super popular and is made available on a first-come-first-serve basis, so arrive early to avoid a long line up. We'll have the flight sim open and running while you wait and you can get some practice in before you try the real thing! 

Do I have to bring anything?

Bring a camera and take lots of pictures in the sky, it's not everyday that you get to fly your own airplane!

Do I have to sign up?

You can just show up anytime between 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, but we recommend you RSVP so we can prepare the correct amount of food and beverage for people and also notify guests if any changes are necessary due to poor weather conditions. Please email us at info@solomoncollege.ca to sign up!
