The Flyers were nominated by W. G. Hardy to represent Canada at the 1947 Ice Hockey World Championships, but the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association ultimately did not to send a team due to funding issues.
The Flyers were a minor league affiliate of the National Hockey League's Detroit Red Wings during their tenure in the WHL. During this time, many future NHL stars passed through the Flyers organization. Among them were Al Arbour, Johnny Bucyk, Glenn Hall, Bronco Horvath, and Norm Ullman.
The Flyers played in the following leagues:
- 1940-41: Alberta Senior Hockey League (amateur)
- 1941-45: Did not operate (World War II)
- 1945-51: Western Canada Senior Hockey League (amateur)
- 1951-52: Pacific Coast Hockey League (minor professional)
- 1952-63: Western Hockey League (minor professional)
