Join the Brampton Flight Centre (BFC) and Great War Flying Museum (GWFM) for their annual Open House and Fly-in on Sunday, September 11, from 10 am to 4 pm. The event takes place at the Brampton Airport and offers of variety of fun-filled activities that are popular among aviation enthusiasts and families alike.
Canadian aviation history comes to life as visitors browse through the GWFM’s impressive collection of WWI combat aircraft, witness WWI military re-enactments, and learn about the restoration of these treasured aircrafts.

Visitors will see a dazzling display of vintage, classic and modern aircraft, have the opportunity to fly a state-of-the-art full motion “Redbird” simulator, and enjoy spectacular sight-seeing flights. Cadets from the 892 Snowy Owl Cadet Squadron, based at the airport, will be around to talk about their programs, and the Recreational Aircraft Association and Fisher Flying Products will demonstrate their expertise and techniques for building airplanes.
The Open House will also feature classic cars and motorcycles, live birds of prey, musical entertainment, trackless train and face-painting for the kids and a BBQ.
Other activities include tours of the airport and airplane rides. BFC flight instructors and pilots will answer questions about flight training programs and how to become a pilot. Kids and parents will also learn about the Centre’s Kids Flight Camps.
