The Bradley Flying Association (BFA) is Peoria Illinois’ oldest and most well established membership-owned flying club. The Bradley Flying Association is a not-for-profit organization chartered by the state of Illinois and has been in operation since the late 1940’s.
The purpose of BFA is to provide a safe and inexpensive way to learn to fly, do pleasure flying and earn additional ratings. In mid-2005 our fleet included a Piper Warrior, two Cessna 172 Skyhawks, and a Cessna Cutlass which is a C172 with retractable gear, all hangared at Greater Peoria Airport, KPIA. All are equipped and current for instrument flight. Our 80+ members include pre-solo students thru Air Transport Rated pilots.
