Summer may be on the cusp of winding down, but the fun doesn’t have to. On Sunday September 10th you can take part in an incredible local adventure. It’s annual Airport Day at the Brampton Flight Centre (BFC) at the Brampton-Caledon Airport.
The fun gets underway at 10:00 am and the sky’s the limit! Aviation enthusiasts’ hearts will soar at the prospect of airplane rides and airport tour wagon rides. And there’s so much more! This is truly a family-friendly event. Fill your day looking at antique cars, enjoying musical entertainment, viewing birds of prey, going for trackless train rides, face painting, a BBQ and more.
Airport Day promotes the education and wonder of aviation through hands-on activities and exhibits with flight instructors and pilots providing lots of information about the Centre’s training programs, flight camps for kids and air cadets.
The Great War Museum will have their doors open and their planes flying. Entry into the Great War Museum is $10 per adult, or $20.00 for a family (up to 4 paying adults). Children under 12 are free. Cash or e-Transfer only. Proceeds support the charitable organization’s critical work of preserving Canadian WWI aircraft and history.
The Brampton Flight Centre is owned and operated by the Brampton Flying Club, a not-for-profit organization. The Club was formed in 1946 and relocated to Caledon in 1969. The Flight Centre is an internationally recognized flight training school and produces many of Canada’s top pilots.
The Brampton-Caledon Airport is located at 13691 McLaughlin Road in Caledon. Airport Day is from 10:00am until 4:00pm on Sunday September 10th. Parking for the day is free.
BFC believes that we can make a difference in the lives of those who are less fortunate. They invite everyone who is attending Airport Day to participate in their food drive for the Knights Table by donating non-perishable food items and baby needs.
