Sight Seeing Flight with the Brampton Flight Centre

Seeking an adventure high above the skies of Toronto we hop aboard a Cessna Super Hawk 172P single engine plane and take off from the airport on McLaughlin Road in Caledon, just north of Brampton. Keeping us safe in the wild blue yonder was Brampton Flight Centre (BFC) Flight Instructor and our fabulous pilot, Stefanie.

Known as the Brampton Airport, the member-owned Centre offers Familiarization Flights, Introductory Flights, Sight Seeing Flights, a full-motion Redbird Simulator as well as a comprehensive list of flight training programs. "BFC’s reputation is highly regarded both in Canada and internationally for pilot training as a recreational pilot or to become a professional pilot. We do not charge additional flight training fees for international students. The BFC is an active member of the Air Transport Association of Canada (ATAC) and is a registered private career college under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005."
A flight that includes up to 3 people can take off from the runways with a skilled pilot at the controls, take an approximate one hour flight over locations that you pick for about $230 plus tax. We decided to visit Toronto, Halton Hills, down to the Lake and following the shoreline into Toronto where we passed by the CN Tower a couple of times, then up through Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon.
Down near the Humber - it looks like some algae blooms are in the water

Seeing Toronto from above is a real treat and trying to pick out landmarks outside the downtown core can be difficult. One place we did want to find from the air was the Cheltenham Badlands, which Stefanie was able to locate.
