Welcome to COPA Flight 148!!

Flight 148 was founded in 2007 to create an additional venue for sharing aviation interests, comaradarie, adventures, and concerns, among local pilots, owners and aviation enthusiasts in the Brantford, Ontario area.

We enjoyed some great events during our inaugural year, and hope to continue building upon this for the future. Many of our members are also active members of the Brantford Flying Club which was established in 1929. It is one of the oldest Flying Clubs in Canada.

We enjoy the blessing of large areas of uncontrolled airspace for our local recreational and training flights, as well as the added safety shield of full ATC within minutes, as we fly into the Golden Horseshoe and reach the economic engine of Ontario within 30 minutes.

We welcome everyone interested in Aviation to attend our monthly meetings, join in on our Events and to join our group. Our purpose is to openly share our airborne interests, knowledge, and adventures. It is also an opportunity for that ever important Hangar Talk...

So come on out and join us...

Next Meeting:

Thursday April 15, 2010. at 7:00 p.m. in the Brantford Airport Terminal Building.

No. 5 S.F.T.S. Brantford - Seeking Info

During WWII, the Brantford Airport was home to No. 5 Service Flight Training School. Here, young pilots from Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom were trained for multi-engine Service in Avro Ansons.

This is the nose art from the "A" Squadron training aircraft.

We are actively seeking more information about its history...
