Welcome to the Edmonton Flying Club!
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.
The first step to earning your wings has already been taken. This website
