Welcome to the Toledo Flying Club, Inc.  The Toledo Flying Club (TFC) was founded on July 30, 1940, making it one of the oldest flying clubs in the world. Despite countless challenges during past 82 years, the Toledo Flying Club maintained its charter and has the distinction of being the oldest continuously-active flying club in the United States.

TFC is located at the Ed Carlson Memorial - South Lewis County Airport in Toledo, Washington (KTDO). Many of our members reside locally; however, some members regularly travel a considerable distance to participate in our club activities, socialize with other members, and enjoy our laid-back country airport lifestyle.

Our club is a registered non-profit (501c) organization and is operated for the benefit of its members and to enhance the experience and enjoyment of general aviation. We welcome new members and are always happy to share our stories and our fellowship with others in and around our region.

The Toledo Flying Club is committed to providing its members with a well-maintained and accessible airplane. With a dedicated maintenance officer and access to several qualified A&P mechanics in the area, we are confident that our 1978 Piper Warrior will do the job when asked.

Since the aircraft is owned and operated by the club members, we can provide a very economical way to 'own' your own aircraft and share that pride of ownership with fellow members!

Our aircraft, 'Charlie'
