Two Information Sessions, September 13th & September 17th. Always wanted to become a pilot? Looking to the sky when a plane flies by, wishing you were there?

RFC'S ANNUAL MEMBERS BBQ / LIVE MUSIC/ CRICKET MATCH/VOLLEYBALL GAME/CHILDREN'S RACES/PRIZES The combination of light aircraft and summer barbecues often conjures up the image of the $100 hamburger. It’s certainly fun to fly off to a neighbouring airport for an informal lunch or dinner, spending closer to $200 these days.

It’s the Rockcliffe Flying Club Members’ BBQ, and cricket match, and volleyball game, and children’s races (with prizes), and flour-bombing prize-giving, and spot-landing prize-giving, and live music, and just about as much fun as you can pack into a Saturday afternoon. The festivities start at 3:00 pm and wrap up at 8:00 pm on Saturday, September…

It costs only $10 to participate in the competitions, and you can procure additional bombs for $5 apiece. Payment can be made during the on-site registration on the day of the competitions. Each aircraft in the flour-bombing competition must have a pilot…
