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]

July 2015 Newsletter

Message from the President

I am pleased to announce that by the time everyone sits down to read this months newsletter, GPDW should be back at Edenvale and ready to enjoy. I thank all of our pilots for their patience and understanding during the down time. And to the spouses of all our pilots; Your Welcome ! Guys, I hope that you used the down time to get the chores around the house completed. Only kidding ! Only Kidding !

Mark your calendars for Saturday August the 8th for the Gathering of the Classics ! In the past many of our members have generously volunteered their time to help make the Classics a success. We will once again have the club and our cardinal on display at the event. If you have a few hours to volunteer to man the booth it would be greatly appreciated. Please contact myself ([email protected]) or Mark Szwarc ([email protected]) if you are available.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Summer, I look forward to seeing you around the airport !

The AGM was held on Saturday April 25th at Bistro 26, and given the amazing weather we still managed a good turnout.  So thank you to those that attended. 
To Summarize:
  • Flying hours for the plane were about the same compared with the year previous, 285 hours

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.
