When everyone refers to BFC, is it always in reference to Brantford Flight Centre and not Brampton Flight Centre?

Reading through this thread, I see a couple of people talking about choosing between BFC & Island Air, and their proximity makes me think that they're referring to Brampton Flight Centre, but OP is comparing "BFC to Spectrum" and their proximity makes me think they're referring to Brantford.

With that being said:
  • Does Brantford Flight Centre have a waitlist?
  • Does anyone have any experience going from a totally new pilot to CPL with Brantford?
  • Any recommendations for specific instructors with Brantford?

In case the OP was referring to Brampton - I was just there today and asked about the wait list. They said it's been cleared.

I still need to start scheduling training so I'll believe it for sure when I see it, but on their word, there's no waitlist there currently.

I can confirm this now - the 12 month wait was (according to them, anyway) due to people abusing the reservation system, and they've implemented a number of measures to prevent this from happening. There is currently no wait list - I can confirm that by looking at the scheduler.
