Greetings everyone. Here's a brief update on the work we've done around our Clubhouse and hangar. 

Our landscaping is now complete and some seed has been spread. The base for the taxiway is now much firmer which will allow for better hangar access in the spring and fall.  I'd like to take t…

Welcome to 2020

Back from the “Sunshine State”, although a wee bit early this year for reasons obvious to most. We're not really happy about it but it seemed prudent and it’s always nice to come home. Quarantining for another day or two. 


There is nothing new to report as far as the status of …

Spring 2019 News

It appears that a tough winter (for many) is coming to an end, and warmer flying weather is approaching. 

We had a very good winter in Florida but due to some aircraft upgrading I did less flying than normal. Still, it was nice to be where the only ice is in the Margaritas.

At our AGM i…

Welcome to 2018 & another year of flying fun

Hello everyone 

We are still down in Trumpland for a few more weeks, and are enjoying what’s left of winter. Not trying to rub it in but the heat has been very intense since the end of January. I’m not complaining, but flying my little “greenhouse” has been a very warm experience.

Greetings from Florida

Hi everyone!

I escaped to the sunny south shortly after our Mess Hall dinner, which was a very interesting evening with Ian Robertson. I'm pretty sure everyone enjoyed hearing him speak so eloquently about a place that is dear to our hearts. Hopefully you had a chance to examine the old photos th…

A very special than…

Florida Flying

Greetings from Florida! We've been enjoying the warmer temperatures and sunny days, which is giving us plenty of time for a number of short trips around the area. This week, Mary Rae and I took a run up to Avon Park (just south of Kissimmee) to visit with Prince Edward Flying Club members, Glen …

President's Perspectives

This year has been a busy one for our Club and I would say, fun as well.   

Early this spring of 2014, we decided that the exterior of the Clubhouse was beyond paint, so something serious had to be done. New siding seemed to be the best solution, which is the direction we took. Over the course …
