We work hard to get involved with our community, whether it’s hosting field trips for local schools, or participating in local road adoptions. We also love to plan group flights beyond Ann Arbor. Here we share some of those stories.
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.
