Founded in 1999 SATC quickly became the certified vocational institute of choice for all flying enthusiasts in the Calgary area. We set about to create an opportunity for like minded thinkers to pursue their aviation dreams. Today, we continue to build on our students’ success through a commitment to improving and updating the resources available to them.
SATC is more than just a flight school. Our passion for aviation drives us to share that passion with our students, providing them with an experience that they will remember for the rest of their lives. We provide safe, professional flight training in an enthusiastic and fun learning environment.
AT SATC, WE ARE...
Our scheduling department will help you optimize your schedule to assist in learning and life balance, all the while keeping you accountable to a reasonable completion date.
Our sister company Cavalier Aviation ensures that the SATC fleet is maintained to the highest standard so that all you need to worry about is learning! To minimize disruption, all maintenance is scheduled strategically, keeping downtime to a minimum.
There are many systems in place behind the scenes to maximize efficiency. We own our own fuel tank and two fuel trucks, which go a long way in reducing turnaround times between flights and ensuring our students are in the air as much as possible.
SATC is a licensed vocational school approved by Alberta Learning, that is committed to achieving and maintaining a high standard of flight training. This vocational license allows students holding a private pilot’s license to apply for government funding to help them cover the cost of training for their commercial pilot’s license. We are also certified to issue tuition tax credit receipts, allowing our students to claim tuition expenses on income tax returns.
