The Kamloops Flying Club promotes general aviation activities as well as opportunities for continued education and social engagement with fellow aviators

Welcome to the Kamloops Flying Club

The Kamloops Flying Club has been a focus of aviation activities in Kamloops for the past 40+ years. In 2000 we became  COPA Flight 82 with our association with the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association. Through this relationship we have been involved with the COPA for Kids events which introduces our youth to the world of general aviation.

Every year we engage our fellow clubs in and around the province to host several fly-in events as well as fly-outs to their hosted events.

Kamloops Flying Club Facebook Page set up for members

Members wishing to be placed in the closed group email Blake, Tyler, or Kieran. The point of the page is to allow more convenient communication between members planning flights and looking for passengers or other planes to fly with. Please join to allow for more joint flying adventures with club members.

 

 75th Anniversary of First Flight to Kamloops

 

This April 13 marks the first flight to Fulton Field in a Aeronca. Come out to celebrate this event. The club will try to have a plane from every decade from 1940 to near 2000. The airport management will be hosting the event with a Buffalo and two Hawk trainers on display. Also there will be kids events and food available.

 

We look forward to a stronger and more active club this year.  Please come out to offer your support to the club.
