Welcome to the Michigan Flyers!
We’re a non-profit flying club, formed in 1969, based at the Ann Arbor Airport. We emphasize safety 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.
We find our club and our pilots in some interesting places
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.
Our club was featured in a nationwide aviation trade magazine, with an in-depth look at our light-sport aircraft, the Cessna Skycatcher. Read more on AOPA's site.
Last Saturday, six Flyers packed into three of the club's Cessnas and took flight for a beautiful trip up the Detroit River and beyond Lake St. Clair to Port Huron. For two weeks, we'd been planning for such a weekend flight, but bad weather kept us grounded, mulling VFR charts at an Ann Arbor Coney Island.
