Sea to Sky Air elevates lofty desires to fly with one-on-one flight lessons, which convene several hundred metres above British Columbia's picturesque coast. A one-hour lesson prepares aspiring aerialists with a 25-minute ground training to review the basics of what to expect and to devise a witty call sign. For the next 35 minutes, a certified flight instructor propels singular passengers above the Pacific, Vancouver, and Whistler and even steps aside to allow fledgling captains a chance to navigate the craft. The Squamish landscape is home to scenic mountainscapes, coastlines, bald eagles, and Canada's largest nesting-doll population.
