Fly Yourself to Work and Get Paid

Do you feel driving to and from your job site is a waste of your valuable time off? If you are paid wages and compensated for mileage currently, the Canadian Aviation Regulations state you can be paid to fly your own airplane to work allowing you to spend more of your time off doing what you want.

Absolute Aviation can help you get your license through a variety of flexible options including online ground school and accelerated classroom options. Support in finding an aircraft to suit your needs and budget can also be available.  The Wetaskiwin based maintenance division of Absolute Aviation is also available to provide quality regular maintenance and servicing. Further, hangar space is available at many Alberta airports including Wetaskiwin Regional Airport either for rent, purchase, or construction. A unique project called Skyport Properties is under development in Wetaskiwin and features lots available for hangars to be built including living quarters.
