EMFSO explained

Electric Model Flyers of Southern Ontario (EMFSO) is an incorporated model aviation club, registered with the Model Aeronautics Association of Canada (MAAC). The club endorses Transport Canada (TC) and supports the regulation of model aeronautics for recreation. Core values include: members first, safety, instruction, information and a strong sense of community.

Founded in 1985, EMFSO was one of the first organizations in North America dedicated to electric model aviation. At the time, use of electric motors for propulsion was a relatively new idea. Through the hard work of the founders, EMFSO helped members gain knowledge necessary for successful electrically powered model flight. This was accomplished with a newsletter as well as events and workshops in southern Ontario.

Today, EMFSO continues with the original mission of the founding members and stays current with innovative radio control technology and up to date battery power. Additionally, indoor flight venues provide members with more opportunities to fly. The organization also developed Crosswinds Field, a year round outdoor flying site. Each year there is an annual general meeting, informative workshops and on-going flight instruction. More recently, the organization's website emfso.org is undergoing an update.

The future for EMFSO looks positive, especially since electric power is now a mainstream form of power for model aircraft.
