Welcome to the Michigan Flyers!
We’re a non-profit flying club, formed in 1969, based at the Ann Arbor Airport. We emphasize safety, affordability and continuing education, and membership is open to the public.
As the area’s Cessna Pilot Center, we provide the best-maintained rental aircraft and highest quality flight training available.
The time we spend on the ground is nearly as fun as our time airborne
Our annual membership meeting is Tuesday, September 24, 7pm, at Zingtrain. We'll share an annual financial update, club accomplishments, updates from our facilities and aircraft growth groups and recognize the hard work of those who make the club tick. And we will hold elections for several board seats: president, and two at-large directors.
We are also proposing several changes to club by-laws, which require a vote by the membership. These changes are mostly tweaking the structure of the board. We would like to change from 6 elected officers and 1 appointed treasurer to 5 elected officers, 1 appointed treasurer, and 1 appointed general manager.
We find our club and our pilots in some interesting places
The small town of Oshkosh, Wisconsin becomes one of the busiest aviation venues in the world each year for a period just a little more than a week. According to the statistics from EAA’s 2019 summary, the AirVenture this summer hosted more than 642,000 visitors and more than 10,000 aircraft!
The Michigan Flyers Club was well-represented this year, with 5 of our club’s airplanes making the hop across (or around) the lake to attend the EAA AirVenture 2019. Here we document the personal accounts (with pictures!) from a few of the members that got the chance to visit this year!
Check out this video compilation highlighting some amazing footage of our aircraft, instructors, and students! Thanks to Shawn White for putting this together.
Our members gathered for a late fall flour bombing competition. In this event, we approach the Ann Arbor grass runway from 500 feet, and attempt to hit a target on the ground with sacks of flour.
Members of our club organized Women in Aviation week. We hosted hundreds of students in field trips to the airport, a model rocket launch, and tours of the air traffic control tower.
