The BFC Open House is also a Fly-In. Aviators from many other airports and far away destinations will be flying in for the event. This gives you the unique and awesome opportunity to see many incredible aircraft that have flown-in for the day. You can talk with pilots and owners as they join the fun at the Open House.
W.W. 1 Replica Airplanes
Every hour, World War 1 (WW1) Replica Biplanes and Triplanes will be taking to the skies. Watch as these WW1 Flying Machines take-off and engage in simulated dog fights. It’s amazing to see these colourful and historic airplanes circling above as they display their manoeuvrability and performance.

Biplanes and Triplanes
Replica W.W.1 (1914-1918) Biplanes and Triplanes from the early days of flight will be on display, and many will also fly. These early fighter aircraft are always a crowd pleaser, and fun to see.
Great War Flying Museum (GWFM)
Money raised from the Brampton Flying Club Open House and Fly-In will be used to support the Great War Flying Museum (GWFM) located at the Brampton Airport.
GWFM recreates the sights, sounds and feel of World War One combat aircraft. The members of GWFM build, maintain and fly World War One replica fighter aircraft. They also have many precious artifacts from WW1 to commemorate this early era of aviation.
Meet the Pilots
Come early (10 am) to the Brampton Flying Club Open House and Fly-In. Tour the facilities, and browse the displays. There will be many static aircraft for you to see. Best of all, you can chat with many of the pilots as they share their flying stories and knowledge.
Here, you see LearnToFly.ca editor, Geoff McKay with a pilot/owner in front of his replica WW1 era Biplane.
Have you ever thought about building your own aircraft?
There will be many homebuilders and amateur builders at the event who can share their experience. As homebuilt aircraft become increasingly popular, it’s a great opportunity to learn from others who already have built their own flying airplanes.
Talk to pilots who have built airplanes from kits including both ”quick-build” kits and the traditional “parts kits” available today. There may even be a few builders at the event who have built their airplanes from plans, and they had to hand fabricate all the individual components.
LearnToFly.ca editor Geoff McKay recently went for a demo flight with pilot/owner Wayne Hadath in his homebuilt F1 Rocket. The Fastest F1 Rocket in the Known Universe! (Watch the video: F1 Rocket Homebuilt Airplane)
