From Will Chabun:

The good folks at the Regina Flying Club have asked me to poke around and see if there is any way to confirm their contention that the club is the oldest more-or-less continually operating one in Canada and possibly the Commonwealth.

The club was formed in 1927 and operated without a break until the outbreak of the Second World War, when almost all private and club flying was suspended. Many of its members became instructors, maintainers or administrative staff at the wartime 6 Elementary Flying Training School at the Regina airport.

Postwar, the club resumed operations in 1946 and has operated since then.

Can any other flying club in Canada match that?
