Sightseeing Flights and Group Tours
We welcome the public to come visit us. You can have the opportunity to try a flight without any commitment of signing up as a member.
Sight Seeing Flight
Our Sight Seeing Flights allow you to see the world from a perch that few get to enjoy. Whether it’s a flight over the city, around the CN tower, Niagara Falls or the local countryside, bring your camera and enjoy the ride. A one-hour flight costs $230.00 plus tax and includes seats for up to 3 passengers all included.
The Classic Introductory Flight is for those considering learning to fly. This introduction to the thrill and adventure of flying with you as the pilot has long been the standard for pilots to be. Your Transport Canada approved flight instructor will guide you through what is involved in learning to fly, give you a tour of the BFC facilities and share a 20 minute flight with you at the controls. A post flight briefing will follow so all of your questions can be answered. The Classic Introductory Flight costs $100.00 plus tax.
So you have decided to learn to fly. Then the First Lesson is for you. This will be your first formal flying lesson. Following a ground briefing your instructor will guide you through the primary exercises to be mastered during the first stage of obtaining your pilot license. This lesson will last about one hour, will cost about $230.00 plus tax and will start you on the way to earning your Pilot Licence. (One passenger only).
Full-Motion Redbird Simulator
Another option is to try out our Full-Motion Redbird Simulator (FMX 1000). The Redbird FMX is a full motion, 3 axis, Flight Training Device. It allows the pilot to feel the real sensations of flight without ever having to leave the ground. It can be tested out by anyone 12 years and older. The cost is $100.00 plus tax for a half an hour. This simulator experience will introduce you to the concepts of flight preparation, some basic flight maneuvers and navigation. You will learn the introductory skills of flying, including take-off and landing.
Our hours are 8a.m. to 10p.m. weekdays and 8a.m. to 10p.m. weekends. We are only closed on Christmas Day and New Years Day, which allows us to fly all year. We operate with over 30 Flight Instructors and 24 aircraft, including single engine, retractable gear, twin engine, and a tail wheel dragger. The Brampton Flying Club is one of the largest Flight Training Facilities in Canada, and we operate out of our own airport. Brampton Flying Club has been conducting tours for school groups and recreational groups for many years. Whether addressing the topics of the grade six aviation curriculum, or helping young Scouts or Girl Guides receive their aviation badge, or simply for a kids birthday party, our group tours can be modified to suit almost any age or group.
Visitors are also able to arrange flights as part of their tour. A single engine aircraft carrying three students will make a 20-25 minute flight over the Caledon Hills.
