our fleet & rates

Sea Land Air Flight Training Centre (SLA) carefully selects a fleet of new and modern aircraft that are not only well equipped for training but also attractive to students. Our fleet of Diamond Aircraft – DA20–A1, DA20–C1, DA40 and DA42 Twin is available for training and/or rental (on selected models).

We must confirm that the renter-pilot has knowledge of SLA's Rules and Regulations, as well as aeronautical knowledge required to safely and proficiently operate our aircraft prior to renting an aircraft from SLA. This includes, but is not limited to, knowledge of aircraft limitations and systems, and operations within the Lower Mainland area.

Relevant documents/forms and aircraft type exams are provided below under each aircraft type for you to download and complete. This will help save time when you come in for your checkout.

D-SIM-42 Twin Star

Located at our branch office at Aberdeen Centre, the D-SIM-42 flight simulation training device is an exact replica of the most modern twin engine aircraft Diamond DA42 Twin Star, featuring accurate aerodynamics, systems replication and complex aircraft instruments simulation including a sophisticated external visual system (EVS) with 200-degree cylindrical screens. It is the only flight training device (FTD) of its kind in BC and can also be used for IFR recurrency training and certification.

The flight dynamic including the aerodynamic model, the engine, prop and gear model is based on the aircraft reference data from Diamond Aircraft Industries as well as on additional subjective flight tests with the aircraft with experienced DA42 pilots from Diamond Aircraft, Diamond Simulation and customers alike. Other features include:

  • FTD Level 5 DA42 with Garmin G1000.
  • G1000 Interface for KAP 140 2-axis Autopilot.
  • A three-channel external visual system (EVS) with 200-degree cylindrical screens.
  • A three-axes electronic control loading system (ECL) which ensures a high degree of realism for the simulation of the control forces.

Incorporating training in a simulator or FTD in flight training programs has become increasingly popular in recent years. Not only can simulation training increase the effectiveness in flight training, it can also achieve significant cost efficiency. Although there is no substitute for actual flight training in an aircraft, you can save time and cost training and practicing in a simulator/FTD. With simulation, you can identify certain areas that need additional training and focus on those areas; you can simulate flying in different scenarios, conditions and locations; and you can repeat training on certain skills until you have mastered them. All these can be achieved at a lower cost than if the training was done in actual flight.

Training - Dual with a Multi IFR instructor / Class 1 instructor towards the instructor Rating $200.00/hr
Training - Dual with a VFR instructor $193.00/hr
This D-SIM-42 is located at Aberdeen Centre branch office.
