The photograph above was taken at our 2009 Homecoming Supper, Awards Night, and Social.  The photo includes 20 of the aproximately 90 pilots who had obtained licenses or permits at the Shoal Lake Airport since it opened in 1991.  See Flight Instruction for more information.

Honorary member, Prue Critchley, was honoured for her work on the Club DVD/CD and was instrumental in setting up this web site.

We were deeply saddened by the sudden death of J. R. (Dick) Edmundson during the summer of 2012.  Dick was one of two people who were instrumental in the effort that resulted in the building of the Shoal Lake Airport in 1991.  As Secretary-Treasurer of the Shoal Lake Airport Authority he was involved in every aspect of the operation and expansion of the Airport for a number of years after it was built.  Dick was also an active member of the Shoal Lake Flying Club and an organizer or volunteer in every project that we were involved in.  Not a licensed pilot, Dick took both unltralight and certified aircraft instruction and never missed the opportunity to go for a flight and was always eager to take the controls!  We miss him constantly but are inspired by his example to keep our aviation community active and healthy for at least the next 20 years!  We were deeply moved at the unveiling of our Airport sign and its dedication in Dick's memory at our Annual Social on March 2, 2013.  This was a joint project of the Flying Club and the Airport Authority.  It is fitting that Dick's likeness is there to greet arrivals at the Airport!
