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]

November Club Meeting - A Tale of Two Lancasters

Canadian Warplane Heritage UK Tour

Thursday November 20th, 7:00PM, the Borden Flying Club is honoured to feature an evening with crew members from the Canadian Warplane Heritage's Mynarski Lancaster England Tour. Make a point of coming out to Edenvale Airport’s Bistro 26 to hear how their trans-Atlantic journey actually started 35 years earlier. The crew will take us from the Lanc's awkward arrival at Mount Hope slung under a Chinook helicopter all the way to its epic tour of England and back.

September Hangar BBQ Wrap-up

Club member/pilots comparing notes on the finer points of Cardinal flying.September's meeting was wrapped into a Hangar BBQ this year. In spite of our very best effort to host a Harvard Flight Event centred around a Hangar BBQ, the late summer weather would not cooperate.

As the week unfolded everyone, pilot or not, looked to the sky and hoped that the forecast would show signs of improvement as the week progressed. Sadly by late in the week it was pretty obvious that this time the weather office nailed the forecast. Low cloud, gusty winds and persistent showers meant that Bjarni, from the Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association, was not going to make it.

We're happy to say that even though the weather gremlins kept us ground-bound they couldn't foil our BBQ. Come 5:00 PM our President Chris Thompson ignited the grill and we had a wonderful evening of friendly conversation, hangar flying and reminiscing.

Night Flying Checkout

A reminder, as some late evening rentals have been booked on PDW recently.  The club does require members to complete a one-time night checkout with one of our check-pilots.  CNV8 is a relatively easy airport to operate within, however reduced visibility during night time will create some challenges with blackhole type of illusions.  Fly Safe!!
