Welcome to the Brampton Flight Centre!

The Brampton Flight Centre (BFC) is recognized around the world as one of the top flight training schools in Canada. Thousands of pilots have trained and graduated from BFC flight training programs since 1946. Many BFC graduates now have very successful and rewarding careers in the aviation industry as airline pilots, Transport Canada inspectors, safety investigators and business managers.

BFC’s reputation is highly regarded both in Canada and internationally for pilot training as a recreational pilot or to become a professional pilot. We do not charge additional flight training fees for international students. The BFC is an active member of the Air Transport Association of Canada (ATAC) and is a registered private career college under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005.

The Brampton Flight Centre is owned and operated by the Brampton Flying Club. The BFC is an innovative, thriving, member-owned organization that strives for excellence in the products and services offered. Top priority is safety and security. Our mission is aviation education. The high quality flight training programs taught by our Transport Canada licenced flight instructors have provided our pilots the skills and knowledge to enable them to achieve their flying goals. The excellence of our training is exemplified by our winning record in the Webster Memorial Competition (annual award for top amateur pilot in Canada). BFC has produced the winner for 3 consecutive years, an amazing achievement in the history of Webster.

BFC is also the only flying club in Canada to own an airport, this offers students and members many advantages. The beautiful facilities (including the airport, restaurant, maintenance and overhaul shop and fuelling facilities) and our modern fleet of aircraft are owned by the BFC. In addition, the Brampton Airport is home to a thriving aviation community including the Great War Flying Museum, Recreational Aircraft Association (RAA) – Toronto, 892 Snowy Owl Air Cadet Squadron, Fisher Flying Products, along with privately owned aircraft and hangars.

The Brampton Airport is close to Toronto (the largest city in Canada by population) allowing easy access to all of Canada’s 400 series highways. The airport location is excellent for flying. As well there is quick access to the student pilot practice area providing ample opportunity for pilots to gain experience flying in uncontrolled and controlled airspace.

BFC also offers flight training at the Guelph Flight Centre located at the Guelph Airpark. Guelph is only a 50 minute drive or 15 minute flight from the Brampton Airport. Guelph is a wonderful community and home to the University of Guelph which is within bicycling distance of the airport.

Flying is fun and no previous experience is required! BFC will match a flight training program to your needs. It doesn’t matter what age you are or if you want to fly for recreation or as a professional pilot, BFC will help you succeed by designing a personal program and schedule for you.
