2018-May-21 - The biggest airshow in the Maritimes will be held this summer in Summerside during the weekend of August 25th and 26th - why not plan to do something really cool and attend the show as a fly-in GA aircraft? The process is simple - just contact the air show folks a week or two beforehand letting them know what day you plan to attend, and they'll send you all the info you need. Let's try and get a good showing of some of our Debert pilots at this year's airshow! Click here to find more details about how to attend.
2018-Feb-12 - All pilots (and families and friends) are invited to attend a breakfast-brunch-lunch fly-in at Scottsfield on June 24th between 8am and 2pm local time. Besides being a fun day and a "Gathering of the Clans", the organizers want to acknowledge the 40 year flying career of Ernie McLean and the valuable and tireless effort that he has contributed to the flying community in the Maritimes. For an added interest they plan to have antique and sports cars on display courtesy of the local auto clubs. They are expecting between 30-50 aircraft and ATC for the Scottsfield strip will be on 123.2. If you wish any further information you may contact Peter Forbes at email@example.com. Debert pilots - plan on heading out to the Debert airport bright and early on the morning of June 24th for a fly-out to the Scottsfield Airpark!
2018-May-15 - The busy season for flying and upcoming flying club social commitments is approaching with Debert and Stanley events already scheduled. We are hoping to schedule a breakfast fundraiser soon for our COPA for Kids which would be the marquee event for our flight. We are going to start out with an initial meeting at the flying club on Tuesday, May 29 at 7:00 PM. Everyone is welcome whether they are a Flight 188 member, a COPA member, or someone considering joining in the future! Please contact Derek Shiers for more information.
2018-Apr-15 - Stanley Sport Aviation is hosting their annual fly-in breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, May 19th and 20th from 8:00am until noon each day. There will be a Recurrency Safety Seminar on Saturday, May 19th at 13:00 hours, and the NASCAR All Star Race will be on the big screen at Stanley that evening! All Debert pilots should plan to head over to Stanley early that Saturday or Sunday (or both days for that matter - the only thing better than one pancake breakfast is two). Lets show some strong support from the Debert contingent - we hope to see you there!
2018-Feb-11 - The Truro Flying Club Annual General Meeting is DELAYED until April 3rd because the President of the Board is away for work until then. The meeting convenes at 7PM. This is a "Three Director Year", which means we should be prepared to elect 3 directors to replace the 3 that have reached the end of their 2 year terms. Please plan to attend and please consider nominating someone for the Board of Directors that you think would act in the best interest of the Club and members if elected.
