Youth Flight Camp

Youth Camp 2021 – Cancelled

It is with much regret, that the Brampton Flight Centre has decided that the Youth and Kids Camps will be cancelled for the summer of 2021. We have plans to offer the Youth and Kids Camp once again in the summer of 2022. The Brampton Flight Centre (BFC) has proudly served the local community for 70 years. Through the Youth Flight Camps, we hope to foster a stronger connection with the surrounding area, and to introduce a new generation to the exciting world of aviation. Our program has been tailored to engage students at a level appropriate to their age, and to show them all the challenge and excitement that flying has to offer, from general to commercial aviation. This includes actual flight training with certified instructors and various other activities combining fun and adventure around the Brampton airport.

Introduction to BFC and the Flight Camp Programs

Operations

The Brampton Flight Centre is owned and operated by the Brampton Flying Club (BFC).  BFC is a certified Air Operator, with capabilities in flight training, air taxi, and banner towing. BFC is also an Approved Maintenance Organization (AMO) to meet the needs of the Air Operator, the Club members and other transient aircraft.

Within the flight-training program there are options for obtaining a recreational, private, and commercial pilot licence. There are also options for night and instrument ratings. The Brampton Flight College is an integral part of BFC and permits career-minded students to receive specific industry training towards possibilities as a commercial pilot.

Equipment

BFC owns and operates over 20 aircraft in support of its flight training programs. Our aircraft fleet are mostly comprised of the 4-seat Cessna 172 aircraft . There is also a Bellanca 7ECA (Citabria), which is also a single engine, 2-seat aircraft but has a tail wheel configuration whereas all of the others are tricycle gear. The three 4-seat twin aircraft are primarily used for advanced commercial training.

BFC has 2 Flight Training Devices (Simulators). The Frasca is an enclosed cockpit Flight Training Device (FTD) with a 170 degree wrap around visual system. Though this unit is fixed it induces a feeling of flight through the wrap around visuals. It is a Transport Canada certified Level 2 FTD allowing flight training credits in the PPL, CPL, IFR, and Flight Instructor training programs. The Red Bird is an enclosed cockpit FTD with 200 degree wrap-around visuals. This unit has full motion and induces a realistic but not overbearing sensation of flight. It is a Transport Canada certified Level 2 FTD allowing flight training credits in the PPL, CPL, IFR, and Flight Instructor training programs.

Supplies

Once you are enrolled in the Youth Flight Camp, you are issued a Pilot Training Record to authenticate the completion of your flight camp training. You will also receive a camp tee shirt!
