In the team's early years it was not eligible for the Allan Cup because it was an American-based team. The Flyers won the league title in 1948-49 and 1949-50 but could not advance to the Allan Cup playoffs. Instead the team advanced to the American championships.

The Flyers won the 1948-49 United States National Senior Championship. In the 1949-50 United States National Senior Championship the Flyers had to split the title with the Chatham Maroons.
