Fuel Surcharge: Effective Monday April 23rd we will be eliminating the fuel surcharge. Our fuel supply has finally normalized allowing us to open our pumps again to all pilots.

Selling Fuel: CFC has been given assurances that AvGas supply is normalizing with production from Imperial Oil’s Edmonton Refinery ramping up. So, the good news is all Members and itinerant pilots can purchase fuel at CFC commencing Saturday April 21, 2018. Thanks for your support! All fuel purchases over $75 until May 31st will qualify for one ballot to win a trip for two to Las Vegas. Just present your proof of purchase(terminal credit card receipt) to Dispatch on the day you fuel up. The winner will be drawn at the CFC Annual Banquet planned for October 20th.
