The Edmonton Flying Club, home of the Edmonton Flight College, is unique as it is both a flying club and a flight school. Located just west of Edmonton, Alberta Canada, the club operates out of Parkland airport in Parkland County. Originally founded in 1927 as the Edmonton and Northern Alberta Aero Club, the club's first president was Canadian World War 1 flying ace, Wilfrid R. "Wop" May. At the time, the purpose of the club was to promote aviation and to provide flight training. Today, the Edmonton Flying Club is a member-owned organization that operates a diverse fleet of aircraft and provides flight training at all levels from recreational pilots to Commercial Multi Instrument rated, career ready pilots.
