Best Club in the GTA?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hey Guys,

I've attempted some researching but it seems there hasn't been anything recently (current-6 months ago) posted for club reviews in the GTA. I live at Lakeshore and Parklawn, ironically there is some beautiful parks, empty parking lots, and even water available for float planes and rc boats alike. But I'm not going to be the one who ruins the fun for everyone!

I'm looking to join an Flying Field within about 30-45 mins drive from. I've seemed to be narrowed down to HVFC and MMFC respectively. I've read some older posts from a couple years ago and obviously you get some good and bad.

I'm hoping that maybe a couple member will chime in and give some input as well advantages and disadvantages. I'll be flying a 40ish nitro trainer.

I guess maybe a little about me would help? I'm 25, in sales so tend to be more outgoing and even a little loud somtimes! Just looking to find some welcoming faces to bring me back into the hobby!

Thanks, Michael

Re: Best Club in the GTA?

Go to the one closest to you. All clubs are composed of characters enjoying the hobby their way.

Most are nice people.

You can also consider Burlington or OMFC.

So withing 45 min from you, there are a few choice.

Re: Best Club in the GTA?


I also live at Lakeshore and Park Lawn, and I am currently a member of the MMFC club. The drive on weekends is ok, I leave early in the morning and return by noon usually. I find the members of the MMFC club very friendly, we have a textile runway, a little tight on space but I have never really run into any problems. The people are great and very friendly.

Your wise not to fly in the local Toronto parks, being where we are, we are actually a bit close to the west end of the Toronto Island airport control area. I find flying at a club where I have insurance definitely makes the hobby more enjoyable and entertaining, with less to worry about if something goes wrong.
