5-12 DEC 2015 -- TFC WINTER TOUR IS ON -- Against all odds... The TFC Annual Winter Tour is on this year. Many airports in Thailand have been closed as the DCA (now the CAAT) requires more documentation on the original airport construction and Bang Phra is closed for the annual agricultural fair, but this has not deterred the intrepid aviators of TFC.

09 DEC - to NAN (VTCN)
11 DEC - to MAE SOT

Specializing in Piston Aircraft, the "A Team" can help you. For years, the A Team has kept the Damri Squadron on top form and worked on many types of aircraft in the Kingdom. They can do all the documentation and maintenance work at a very reasonable price -- MEET THE A TEAM

AEROSHOP NEW OWNER -- KHUN LEA -- For Aviators in Thailand, it is very hard to find good aviation maps, good training materials, and good flying gadgets. Recently, we met Khun Lea from France, who is now the "Commandant D'Abord" of the AEROSHOP in Bangkok. The first thing we noticed about her, aside from being very friendly and welcoming, is that she is genuinely interested in providing the aviation items that aviators in the Kingdom need. She welcomes everyone to her shop on 2nd floor AMARIN PLAZA in Bangkok and if there is anything you need, let her know so that she can try to stock it for you -- --

27 SEP 2015 -- FERNANDO AIR AMBULANCE HANGAR PARTY A SUCCESS -- Fernando invited all staff to the opening Hangar Party to celebrate the arrival of this new DA-42.

28 NOV 2015 -- TFC FLYING SCHOOL STATUS -- Exactly one year and five months ago today, The TFC Office Staff decided not to buy a used C150 (HS-LAX) to keep the flying school open. They decided to repair the 3 club aircraft, and mechanic Num was very confident about the TFC Fleet. He said that on NOV 2014 (after 5 months) the 3 aircraft would be back in the air. We are sure that the TFC staff have been working hard, but it has now been over one year, so how much longer will this process take. The TFC Groundschool and flying school has been closed for over one year. The DCA has inspected the aircraft and wrote out a squawk list of snags that need to be addressed before the aircraft can fly. In June 2014, the club had decided not to buy the C150 (HS-LAX) that would have been on the TFC fleet status in 3 months and available for flight training. As soon as we hear some progress on the flight training, we will let you know. In the meantime, the Flying School at Best Ocean Airpark is alive and active.

23-24 MAY 2015 -- CHIANG KHAM FLY-IN GREAT SUCCESS -- Rear Admiral Tanakrid in coordination with RASAT organized the best Expeditionary Fly-In that we have seen in Thailand since OSHTAK 2003. This was the opening of Chiang Kham Airstrip which had been closed for over 30 years. Yes, there were some trees on the end of the runway, and some trees next to the taxiway, but it was nothing that intrepid "Nak Bin Looktungs" (Thai Bush Pilots) could not handle. 9 aircraft joined the trip and flew up via Tantawan, Phitsanoluk, and Prae. Khun Damri came over from Nan, and we all joined Damri back to Nan for a night with the "Lost Squadron." There were over 6,000 spectators and children on the edge of the runway in Chiang Kham. And no one left all day. This was a great event for these young children who came for different schools all around the Phayao and Chiang Rai area. Chiang Kham is a beautiful lush remote part of Thailand, with beautiful temples and waterfalls and hot springs. All the aircraft flew air displays for the spectators and gave rides to enthusiasts. There were R/C aircraft and Paramotors conducting aerobatic displays. Rear Admiral Tanakrid is the President of the Thai Children's Development Foundation, and this event was organized to inspire young Thai Children to expand their horizons. Payao is Southeast of ChiangRai, and this verdant green remote part of Thailand is beautiful. Also assisting with the event will be the Chiang Kham Tourist Association as it is the 111th anniversary of Chiang Kham District and it line with the TAT 2015 campaign "Discover Thainess." Over 10 schools were assisting with the flyin. Everyone was invited to fly up on the 22nd. The 23rd was a day full of events and flying demonstrations with a big party on the Saturday evening of the 23rd. The AVGAS and 95 fuel and hotels were all sponsored free for the pilots and passengers. These 9 aircraft joined this event  -- HS-LOW (wilga), HS-UKY (husky), HS-GIL (big al), HS-PMM (gunter), HS-POP (ben), HS-CPM (stinson), HS-CHP (c337), HS-FER (fernando), HS-AZZ (c206).

TFC Articles of Association


The Thai Flying Club offers PPL (private pilot) flying courses with a FREE GROUNDSCHOOL. To date, the club has trained and certified many Thai and Foreign students. The club can also help you apply to validate your foreign pilots license for flying in Thailand. The flying course is 60 flight hours and the total cost of learning to fly is about 400,000 Baht. To obtain your Thai PPL, you must 1. CKrittika Toumtongomplete an aviation medical examination (one day in Bangkok Hospital), 2. Join the club (10,000 Baht), 3. Submit an application for SPL (200 Baht), 4. Study in the TFC FREE Groundschool (to receive a letter from TFC), 5. Log 60 hours of flight time, and then you can sit the DCA written exams (given once every 3 months) and take a DCA checkride. The ground school in Bang Phra is FREE for everyone, and you can join anytime you want. The DCA has to do a background check on SPL applicants, so it can take 2-3 months to receive your SPL. Start the process early and begin your groundschool studies, so that your SPL will be ready when you are ready to fly. CONGRATULATIONS to Thailand for this great improvement (it used to take 7 months for foreigners to obtain a SPL). Students can only begin to log hours in their logbook after they have received their SPL. If you think you want to learn to fly, then begin this process immediately, so that you can start flying as soon as your SPL is ready. The club charges an hourly rental rate for the airplane (rates vary with type of plane) and the club charges an hourly fee for instructors (see plane and instructor rates). A prospective student may solo with consent of the instructor (usually after 12-20 hours, depending on frequency of flying) after he has his SPL.
