Learning to fly is going to be an exhilarating and fulfilling challenge for you. It may even be a life-long dream come true. The Edmonton Flying Club is a member-owned organization which has a long and proven record in flight training. Our origin dates back to August 2, 1927 when a few aviation enthusiasts came together and created a flying club first known as Edmonton and Northern Alberta Aero Club.
The club's first president was Canadian wartime ace, Wop May, whose early exploits include the last battle of Manfred von Richthofen (better known as the Red Baron), many heroic mercy flights, and the first mail service to Athabasca. Then, the purpose of the club was to promote aviation and to provide flight training to those who had caught the "flying bug". Now, with more than seventy-five years in the business, the Edmonton Flying Club is dedicated to providing excellence in flight training which has made us one of the top schools in Canada.
