The TO/LR Award is the highest Take-Off to Landing Ratio Award. One of a pilot’s biggest goals is to have the number of take-offs equal the number of landings. There is however that special breed of pilot that is an over achiever, an individual that refuses to let the plane go home in the same condition it left. This award recognizes the pilot that has best demonstrated this skill during the year and repeatedly validated the laws of gravity.

Our primary flying site is the club field on the Witless Bay Line acquired in 2013 and developed in 2014-15. Several times throughout the year, we also fly from the paved airstrip on Bell Island and the historic grass airstrip in Harbour Grace.

The first map below shows an overview of the St. John's area to give you an idea where our field is located. The second map zooms in a little closer and the third pinpoints the exact location. 

Keep our flying field clean! Take your garbage with you when you leave.

Take the TCH out of St. John's to the Witless Bay Line off ramp, exit 37. Continue on the Witless Bay Line 4.5 km. The field entrance is on the left. Follow the dirt road that runs parallel with the highway until you reach the parking area.
