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]

March Meeting Update

Owen Sneath's ChallengerHello Borden Flying Club members. Tomorrow's meeting features Owen Sneath as our guest speaker. Owen will be rounding out the roster of member-airplane builders with what I'm sure will be a great presentation. Please join us at tomorrow, Thursday March 19th, 7PM at Bistro 26 on the grounds of the Edenvale Airport.

Remember, many members choose to show a little early, around 5:30PM, to enjoy one of the Bistro's sumptuous dinners. We'll see you there!   

Election of a Board of Directors

Elect a new member to the BoardAs is the mandate of the Borden Flying Club, every year we must hold elections for the Board of Directors who are required to oversee the safe, legal, operational and social aspects of the club. We will have at least 1 opening on the Board this year, and I ask that all members support their club and take a turn on the Board.

All active members, regardless of whether they have served on the Board in the past or not, are allowed to self nominate themselves for a position on the Board. The Board typically meets as a group 6 times a year. Follow this link to the nomination form on the website. All members will have the opportunity to review the candidates through the website here. Elections will be held for the 2015 Board of Directors at the AGM.

Any questions, please feel free to contact me at (416) 994-0997 or [email protected] I would be pleased to hear from you.

March Newsletter 2015

Message from the President

Today, as I sit here writing this newsletter entry, I do so on the 1st day this year that has been above Zero. The days are getting longer, we are now on Daylight Savings Time, and the promise of better flying is ahead. Hopefully, you have had other winter activities to keep you busy, because for the great majority us flying has not been it.

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!!
