Ladies, we need to take it to the next level! It is widely recognized that female pilots only comprise about 6% of all Commercial Pilots. For this reason, the Brampton Flight Centre is participating in the Women Of Aviation Fly it Forward Challenge as we are providing free first flight experiences to females.

Our goal is to encourage girls and women to consider aviation as a hobby or a career and improve gender balance in the industry.

The Brampton Flight Centre (BFC) invites all girls and females who have never flown in a small aircraft before to Take Flight! The flights and ground school are FREE!
