About

Fly Day is an annual charity event organized by the Ottawa Flying Club and the Ottawa Rotary Club. 2014 marks the 56th year for the annual FlyDay.

Fly Day is a fun and popular way for the community to learn about the Ottawa Flying Club while doing something great for a local charity. This year’s proceeds will benefit the Ottawa Rotary Home, long known for offering short-term respite care to families who have children with disabilities.

At Fly Day, members of the public have an opportunity to take a 20-minute tour of the city in a small airplane. The pilots are volunteers from the Ottawa Flying Club and other airports in the region.

Tour tickets are $40 per person. The gates open at 8:30 a.m., and the first flight is at 9:00 a.m. (sorry, no time slot reservations).

Events include:

  • Ground Displays and Demonstrations
  • Activities for young children
  • Breakfast and Barbecue, as well as full food services from our Excellent Lunch Pad Café
  • Information about Learning to Fly

  • full washroom facilities
