Club Facilities

Chapter 85 has been a tenant of Delta Heritage Air Park for approximately 45 years. During that time we have constructed one clubhouse and one hangar complete with paint/work shop. The hangar, with space for six aircraft, has been rented on a monthly basis to members of the club. In addition to this space the club manages an additional eight outdoor tiedowns, also available only to members.

In the mid-1990's, the GVRD (Greater Vancouver Regional District) purchased the airpark with the intent of turning the land into a park. After considerable negotiation with the Chapter and other airpark tenants, the GVRD agreed to allow flying operations to continue within the park. A Licence Agreement was signed between the GVRD and Chapter 85, the largest organization on the field. Chapter 85 continues to manage the airpark through DapCom (Delta Heritage Air Park Operating Committee).

The Chapter's Constitution and Bylaws and the 2013 Bylaw Revision, as filed in accordance with the Societies Act of BC, are available for download.
