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.
Want to find out more about the Borden Flying Club? Seen our ad in COPA Flight? Visit our new member's page for more info.
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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
PDW is back online and in excellent condition. The engine break-in is now complete, members may fly circuits and check-outs will resume. Contact myself or Randy to book a check-flight, we look forward to have everyone flying again soon.
Remember to return PDW with approximately 30G of fuel onboard!
Thursday's club BBQ was an unqualified success, thanks in part to all the members who were there...and those who were there in spirit.
The turnout was fantastic with over 30 people in attendance, perhaps in part due to the spectacular late summer weather.
Two lucky guests went home with new friends and a BFC ball cap after winning a door prize draw while Brian Angus was the night's big winner. Brian's name was drawn and will be credited one hour toward flying PDW.
I would like send a special thank you on behalf of the club to Karen, Dieter, Christian, and Carol for all their hard work organizing the hangar and the event. Another big thanks goes out to Diana Jacobs for pitching in on the grill.
I trust everyone got a chance to introduce themselves to two of our newest members, Bob Jacobs and Dan Laurin, thanks for making them feel welcome. I have a feeling we'll be seeing them out a fair bit now that PDW is back.
Enjoy the rest of the summer, and we'll see you at the next meeting.
PDW has been returned to service and is now available for rent for those pilots who are currently checked out. Circuits are prohibited until we have at least 25 hrs on the engine. Circuits and pilot check-outs should resume after 25 hrs. Another e-blast will follow when circuits and check-outs can resume.
Pilots are requested to avoid abrupt adjustments to engine power and should make every effort to avoid shock cooling, unless safety is a concern.
