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

August 2017

From the President

As this newsletter goes out I am pleased to say that we have had our 1st 4 day stretch this Summer of Sunny Hot Weather that includes a Saturday and Sunday in it. Like the Toronto Blue Jays; it’s a win, and we’ll take them where we can! Despite all the rain this Summer the calendar remains booked, which is a fantastic thing to see.

I had the opportunity to have a guest up for a nice cross country flight to Muskoka, Peterborough and some sightseeing over Barrie recently. He could not stop commenting on how impressed he was with PDW and what a great looking and performing airplane for one that is now 46 years old.

The beauty and condition of the aircraft really is a reflection of the proactive attention our PRM’s have provided over the years, the excellent training and safety record provided by our team in Flight Ops, and lest I forget, the pilot culture of all our Members who treat the aircraft as if it were their own.

I hope that everyone enjoys the remainder of the Summer. I look forward to seeing everyone through the various events planned in August at the Airport.

President's Message

A great start to summer...

Summer is finally here! I think… We have certainly experienced a wet Spring and early start to Summer, but it has not discouraged everyone from getting out and taking flight. We had a fantastic kick-off to Summer with our first hangars open event at the airport in which all tenants were encouraged to open up their hangars, so we could learn more about other pilots and their equipment. It was a great opening event followed by the club BBQ. Truly a good time had by all!

Hope that everyone has an awesome Summer!

Fly safe!

Every year in June the Club hosts a kick-off to Summer BBQ at the hangar. The event is open to friends and family of Borden Flying Club Members past and present, so come on out and enjoy a hamburger or Hot dog sit back and have some fun and laughs!

We have some seating available at the hangar, but you are encouraged to bring a chair. If you would like to contribute to the BBQ with a salad or awesome sweet treat it is always appreciated.

I look forward to seeing everyone on the 24th!

Flight Operations

Inside the Envelope

This membership year, myself and Randy Van Ness will continue to oversee flight operations. We will still have some acess to Don, our Class II instructor, however by arrangement only through [email protected]

We are very glad to have closed-out another membership year with a continued stellar safety record - well done to all and thank-you!

One administrative note, anytime a member comes for a checkout or annual review, ensure the check-pilot's name is entered into the logbook for that flight.
