Where to Fly – East: Wiarton, Ontario


One of COPA eFlight’s favourite features is back. With so many restrictions and tough guidelines discouraging fly-ins and fly-outs this year, none have appeared in eFlight in 2020. Until now.

The Trillium Flyers is a loose-knit group of flyers who have been organizing fly-outs to various southern Ontario airports. They have proven to be very popular in the handful that have been organized in June.

This Saturday, July 4, the group is planning their fly-out to Wiarton Keppel airport (CYVV) to celebrate Canada Day. The Hungry Hangar restaurant, located at the airport, is now open for takeout and outside service at picnic tables. The weather is looking good, so they expect a large crowd.

VERY IMPORTANT: The organizers need to know by 12 noon on Friday the number of attendees to expect in order to plan for aircraft parking (and so the restaurant stocks up on enough food).

RSVP by email before 12 noon ET to organizer Ivan Kristensen is mandatory.

“Bring a flag,” say Ivan.
