Welcome to the Ann Arbor Flyers

The Ann Arbor Flyers has always been a not-for-profit club dedicated to making flying affordable and accessible to everyone. The club operates as a partnership in that each member is a partial owner of the fleet of aircraft with a fully refundable equity purchase. Our bylaws limit the membership to a maximum of sixty (60) shareholders who own our airplanes. Currently we own two Archer III’s, and the flagship of our fleet, a 1984 Piper Saratoga, all hangared at the Ann Arbor airport.

We’ve relied solely on members’ dues and aircraft hourly rates from our planes to keep us financially solvent for over 75 years. We are a member-driven organization and depend on our members to keep the club organized and operating efficiently. We are safety conscious and keep our planes professionally maintained at all times. The membership prides itself on working together with numerous committees (e.g., ADS-B upgrades, fleet evaluation, etc.), which ensures we are continually moving ourselves forward with FAA requirements and aircraft upgrades.

Our introductory flight is an ideal way to discover the joy of flying and learn more about our club. You’ll learn about aircraft, instruments, navigation systems, and safety. A professional FAA-certified flight instructor will guide you throughout the introductory flying lesson. Once airborne you’ll take over the controls to enjoy flying a plane for about 40-45 minutes.

We extend a warm welcome to new members from anywhere and from all walks of life. Please contact us to ask any questions you might have.
