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

Club News & Events

Borden Flying Club's Year End Review - AGM

2013 was a busy year for the club, in fact, as shown in Chris Thompson's presentation to members at the recent AGM, it was the most eventful year he can recall. The AGM was well attended and we're all pleased to see that the club's membership is holding steady with several new flying members; quite an accomplishment in an era where general aviation is seen by some to be struggling.

Last year the club said good bye to C-GCMQ, our trusty, reliable, Penn Yan C172. This aircraft had been the club's sole airplane for many years and gave yeoman service, seldom complaining about the constant workout she received during hours of circuits, proficiency checks, cross country and night flying missions.

Tanis Heater

The switch for the Tanis Heater has temporarily been removed from the hangar for some testing to try to determine the problem with the intermittent access to the Tanis heater online. If pre-heat is required prior to your flight please make sure to give yourself enough time to manually plug-in the Tanis heater at the hangar. Updates will be posted when the heater is back online.

Club Notice - Tanis Heater Control

Tanis Heater Web ControlThe online Tanis heater activation block does not pop up as programmed, refreshing of the web page several times often helps it load. After refreshing the page you may want to wait for 30 seconds to see if the online control becomes available.

The team is working to resolve this issue, however plan to arrive early should the remote system fail to operate. The club does not approve of starting a cold engine (OAT colder than 0*C) without preheat.

Borden Flying Club - New Website

New Borden Flying Club WebsiteYes, we've given a minor facelift, if you're visiting our new website for the first time, welcome.

The previous version of the website has served the club well so we've made sure all the same features are still available, they're just in different locations. As we progress, tweaking and fine-tuning the website based on feedback, it should continue to evolve and improve.

The major differences you'll find with the website, other than the layout, are the club message board and the online e-store. Although they are in different locations, navigation-wise, fundamentally they operate the same as they did before.
