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]

Important Reminders

Annual General Meeting

Saturday, April 23rd, at 10:00 AM
Location: Meeting Room, Bistro 26, Edenvale Airport

Please try to attend our annual business meeting. Whether you can attend or not, please consider volunteering as a Director. It is an excellent opportunity to "give back" a little bit to the club. If you are interested, follow this link and fill in the form to let us know.  You don't have to attend the meeting in order to be elected.

Bug Splatter!

PDW to be cleaned after every flight.

Spring is here and the bugs are already active. Remember to clean the bugs off of the leading edges of all surfaces, the front of the cowl, and the windscreen after your flight. Use only a shop wipe that is fresh from the box and the supplied green solution on the windscreen.  It is far easier to clean the bugs off when they are fresh, and it is rude to leave them for the next pilot to clean.

If every member leaves the aircraft and hanger a little bit cleaner or tidier than they found it, it will make it better for all.  

April 2016 Newsletter

From the President

We Need You...

It's hard to believe that we have completed another flying year already!  The weather gods for the most part shone down upon us and provided us will lots of flying days, which I am proud to say most took advantage of.  The night flying incentive for the winter months proved to be a success, and we have seen the addition of a few new flying members over the year. 

Our pilot safety record has continued to be very good.  PDW is in great flying shape, and a reminder that it is every pilots responsibility to keep her that way.  Please make sure that you are using the vacuum to keep the cockpit clean, and the properly marked cleaners to keep the leading edges and windows clean for the next pilot and guests.  Also please take a moment to report, if see something loose or broken using the form on the clipboard in the hangar and to the PRM via an email.

February 2016 Newsletter

From the President

We continue to be somewhat blessed by a mild and light winter, which has translated into more flying; roughly 15 bookings in the month of January.  Great to see!  We have had a few new members join the club recently, so I would like to take this opportunity to say welcome.  I hope that all of our newest members will take advantage of our amazing airplane and its capabilities for cross-country flying.  In addition, I hope that we can all meet and greet our new members and make them feel welcome at our club meetings held the 3rd Thursday of every month. This month will be a Night at the Movies theme thanks to the generosity of Peter Lubing, we will be featuring Reunion of Giants; a beautifully captured documentary on the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum’s Avro Lancaster.  It’s sure to be a popular night!
