The Learn To Fly Package at The Fairmont Vancouver Airport is the ultimate for the kid who dreamed of being a pilot or an ideal gift for the hard-to-buy for person who has everything.

This is the real deal – a 60-minute motion simulation, out of any airport in the world, in a Boeing 767 at Canada’s premier airline training facility that is normally reserved exclusively for training and testing today’s airline pilots. And when it’s over? Bravo Zulu – job well done!

The Fairmont Vancouver Airport, located 99 steps from US departures, re-defines airport accommodation. Recognized as the Best Airport Hotel in North America for two consecutive years by Skytrax World Airport Awards, the property is a haven for harried travelers. Floor to ceiling windows offer spectacular views of the runway backed by the mountains, while triple glazed windows offer virtual silence. “Quiet” rooms provide a sanctuary for sleepers with confused internal clocks during the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Declared a “noise free” zone, it has no bellmen, no housekeeping, and no room service. Another offering is hypo-allergenic rooms that offer guests a reprieve from environmental stresses with features such as fibre cluster pillows and duvets, daily change of linens that are washed at 300 degrees to eliminate the need for chlorine, carbon activated filters on taps, scent-free cleaning products and filters installed at air intake source that provide the hotel with “hospital quality” air.
An ideal getaway – pre or post flight – is the airy lounge and restaurant with runway views, striking rock fireplace, and an award-winning menu with handcrafted cocktails. There is round the clock room service, a day spa with a variety of treatments to beat jet lag and reduce stress, and a health club with a mechanized three-lane lap pool to swim against a self-adjusted current, whirlpool, children’s wading pool, saunas, and state of the art exercise area.
