Our chapter is named in honour of Roland Groome – the first commercial pilot in Canada, a member of the Royal Air Force in the First World War, and a founder of the Regina Flying Club – and we strive to represent all these areas of aviation!
To do this we’ve established ties with the Saskatchewan Aviation Council, the Airport Display Committee, and played a role in the launch of the Silver Dart stamp in 2009.
We also explore Saskatchewan’s rich and varied aviation history through our monthly meetings. These gatherings range from our popular film and photo nights to guest speakers from around the province and beyond. Past topics have included: military careers and continental air defense; international museum collections; radio-controlled aircraft races; civilian flying operations and entrepreneurs.
The monthly newsletter, Windsock, records these fascinating talks and events, and provides articles, announcements, and other notable aviation news.
We invite everyone to come out and enjoy an evening with fellow aviation enthusiasts. For more information, please visit our website
