Borden Flying Club

Up-to-date hangar facilitiesFederally incorporated in 1958 as the Centralia Flying Club, the BFC changed its name after relocating to CFB Borden in 1967. In the fall of 2004 the club moved to Lake Simcoe Regional Airport (CNB9) following Base Borden's decision to close the aerodrome and in March 2007 the club moved to its current home at Edenvale Aerodrome. The Borden Flying Club is open to everyone.

We have something to offer renters, owners and aviation enthusiasts alike. If you would like further information or are interested in becoming a member please contact us at [email protected]

Club News & Events

October Newsletter

From the President


Well here we are in October already! The days are getting shorter and cooler, and finally we are getting treated to some spectacular fall colours. I'm sure that Flight Ops will re-enforce this point, but we must start considering plugging in the Tanis heater after every flight as the mornings seem to be getting very cool. The aircraft saw quite a bit of flight time in September as pilots took advantage of the extended Summer like conditions. I hope that those of us with Night ratings will take advantage of the early sunsets to get some awesome night flying in.

Just a reminder PDW will be in for its Annual in November.

Safe Flying! and a Happy Thanksgiving to all!

September 2015 Newsletter

Message from the President ‏

It's hard to believe that we are in September again! The Summer was active with lots of flying, a great turnout at the Gathering of the Classics in August, and some new members to the Borden Flying Club. To our new members, welcome! I look forward to seeing you around the airport and at the club meetings which start back up again in September.

Some of you may have noticed an e-blast on the weekend, about our September meeting. In an effort to accommodate our guest speaker we have moved the club meeting back by one week. Please mark it on your calendars that we will be meeting on the 24th of September this month. As usual Bistro 26 will be the venue, and as always there are usually a number of us, who sit down for cocktails and dinner before the meeting starts. I encourage all who are planning on attending the meeting to join us beforehand.

September Meeting Date Chaged

Club Meeting date now September 24th

Our regular monthly meeting will be help on September 24th at 19:00 at the Bistro 26.  The meeting has been pushed to make sure we could secure our guest speaker, Marc-Andre  Valiquette, who will speak about the CF-105 Arrow.  This looks like a very interesting topic!

Look for more details about the event in the next club newsletter.  We expect to return to the regular scheduled 3rd Thursday next month.

Muskoka Airport Runway Closure

The main runway at Muskoka airport (CYQA 18/36) will be closed between August 31st and September 30th for runway reconstruction. All lighting at the aerodrome will also be unserviceable during the construction. We wanted to provide this warning to make sure that members don't miss this information in their review of NOTAMs since this is such a popular destination.

BFC Motorcycle Ride

Some Borden Flying Club members have started getting together for social motorcycle rides.  On Sunday, August 16th, the ride went up the (locally) legendary Road 13 (a.k.a. Southwood Rd) to Bala.  We had a great brunch at a little spot called Annie's, and returned via Big Chute.  Everyone had a great time.  We hope to have at least one more ride, likely in September.  If you are not already on the mailing list for BFC motorcycle events, send an email using this link keep informed.
