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

November Newsletter

From the President

With the days and nights getting colder we have to start planning cold weather ops.  With that in mind, I would like to remind all pilots that they should be using the pre-heat on the plane.  When turned on the preheat will run for 3 hours.  All cross-country flights should include the cowl cover, cowl plugs and possibly the hangar extension chord.  It is necessary to keep the engine warm while stopping over at an alternate airport, whether the purpose is a quick meal or if you get stuck at another field due to weather and have to wait out the storm or plan to recover the aircraft another day.

After every flight when PDW is tucked away in the hangar we shall make sure that the Tanis heater is plugged in, the cowl plugs and cover installed, pitot tube cover installed, battery minder plugged in at the cargo door of the aircraft, and of course, keys on the clipboard.

Just a friendly reminder about care of the aircraft.  Over the last year and a half we as a club have had to fix a lot of little minor things; door latches, no draft cranks, seat stops, etc…  While it cannot always be prevented, due too the age of the airplane and the number of members who fly her, we must all continue to make our best attempts at exercising a pride of ownership. Most of us who have never owned an aircraft privately would be astonished at the price of some of these little minor fixes.  

To ensure that every member gets the benefit of a clean and fully functioning aircraft lets all make sure that we treat PDW like as if it were our own.

October Newsletter

From the President


Well here we are in October already! The days are getting shorter and cooler, and finally we are getting treated to some spectacular fall colours. I'm sure that Flight Ops will re-enforce this point, but we must start considering plugging in the Tanis heater after every flight as the mornings seem to be getting very cool. The aircraft saw quite a bit of flight time in September as pilots took advantage of the extended Summer like conditions. I hope that those of us with Night ratings will take advantage of the early sunsets to get some awesome night flying in.

Just a reminder PDW will be in for its Annual in November.

Safe Flying! and a Happy Thanksgiving to all!

September 2015 Newsletter

Message from the President ‏

It's hard to believe that we are in September again! The Summer was active with lots of flying, a great turnout at the Gathering of the Classics in August, and some new members to the Borden Flying Club. To our new members, welcome! I look forward to seeing you around the airport and at the club meetings which start back up again in September.

Some of you may have noticed an e-blast on the weekend, about our September meeting. In an effort to accommodate our guest speaker we have moved the club meeting back by one week. Please mark it on your calendars that we will be meeting on the 24th of September this month. As usual Bistro 26 will be the venue, and as always there are usually a number of us, who sit down for cocktails and dinner before the meeting starts. I encourage all who are planning on attending the meeting to join us beforehand.

September Meeting Date Chaged

Club Meeting date now September 24th

Our regular monthly meeting will be help on September 24th at 19:00 at the Bistro 26.  The meeting has been pushed to make sure we could secure our guest speaker, Marc-Andre  Valiquette, who will speak about the CF-105 Arrow.  This looks like a very interesting topic!

Look for more details about the event in the next club newsletter.  We expect to return to the regular scheduled 3rd Thursday next month.

BFC Motorcycle Ride

Some Borden Flying Club members have started getting together for social motorcycle rides.  On Sunday, August 16th, the ride went up the (locally) legendary Road 13 (a.k.a. Southwood Rd) to Bala.  We had a great brunch at a little spot called Annie's, and returned via Big Chute.  Everyone had a great time.  We hope to have at least one more ride, likely in September.  If you are not already on the mailing list for BFC motorcycle events, send an email using this link keep informed.
