Club dues for 2013/2014 are payable by April 30th, 2013.
Dues remain unchanged for the 7th consecutive year at $300 for flying members and $50 for social members. New this year; however, is a collaboration with COPA.
Anyone who is a member of COPA will receive a $25 discount on their club dues. This applies to both flying and social members.
Those entitled to this $25 discount have the option to donate that $25 to COPA's Freedom to Fly Fund. To make things easy, you can write a single cheque to the club for your dues and the donation and we will forward the $25 to COPA on your behalf. The donation is just a suggestion and is purely optional.
Those club members who do not belong to COPA will be afforded the opportunity to join COPA when they renew their club membership and receive the $25 discount on their club dues. All you have to do is write a single cheque for your discounted dues and COPA membership. The club will then forward your name & COPA fees to COPA's head office in Ottawa.
The table below outlines the cost to renew your club member and join COPA at the same time.
|Flying Member||Social Member|
|HST on COPA membership||$7.54||$7.54|
|Club discount for COPA Members||$25||$25|
The club has undertaken this program as an expression of our support for the good work COPA does on our behalf. The Borden Flying Club has been a COPA Flight (Flight 84) since 2000 and this is our way of recognizing the efforts made on our behalf by COPA in defending the right of Canadians to enjoy the freedom of Canadian airspace.
We hope that those who are COPA members will choose to forward the money they save on club dues to COPA's Freedom to Fly Fund. We encourage those who are not members of COPA to consider taking us up on this offer and join COPA. If you wish to find out more about COPA, and the work they do, please visit their website.
Don't forget that the club set up a mentorship program last year. If you have any questions regarding any aspect of flying, be it radio procedures, flight planning or anything else that you are unsure of, ask one of the club's more experienced pilots to give you a hand.
For more info, and to arrange for a mentor, go to the members only section of the web site. Mentors can come along on a flight with you or simply spend a few minutes on a ground briefing - whatever you want.
Mentors are volunteers so there is no charge for their time.

Federally incorporated in 1958 as the Centralia Flying Club, the BFC changed its name after relocating to CFB Borden in 1967. In the fall of 2002 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
