We are an active and diverse group of pilots and non pilots. Many of our members have built or are building their own airplanes. We are justifiably proud of our outstanding hangar, meeting facilities, and aviation museum.

New members are always welcomed. We are a family friendly group, so be sure to bring the whole gang. Fly or drive to our hangar and become a part of this dynamic and fun organization.
