Our Aviation Club is likely one of the most friendly, relaxing places to fly in Canada. Set right in the heart of a corn field with clear approaches, rooomy hangars, a cozy clubhouse and fantastic members, it appeals to everyone.
We are an active group of aviators who enjoy all things aviation. Our home is Woodstock Airport, a private field West of Woodstock, steeped in history.
Feel free to drop in for a visit and see our planes, talk with our pilots or just enjoy the interesting atmosphere at a grass strip airfield. We all love encouraging people of all ages to get involved in aviation.
The Woodstock Ontario Flying Club is an Ontario incorporated not-for-profit, member driven, volunteer-based organization which enjoys and promotes safe and healthy aviation in our community through knowledge, integrity and a passion for fun, economical flying. We stand together in aviation etiquette and safety, ensuring we all come home safely.
Safety First. Integrity. Volunteerism. Honesty. Sharing
We are proud to rename our airfield the "Norm Beckham/Bob Hewitt Field" in honour of our two Founding Fathers, Norm Beckham and Bob Hewitt. These fine gentlemen were instrumental in starting the WOFC in 1968. They were also the founders of the Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association in Tillsonburg Ontario, which started with one harvard in 1969 here in Woodstock. With grit and passion, legends were born.
