Membership Demographics

Ann Arbor Flyers is made up of women and men with diverse flying experiences who are connected by a shared passion for aviation. We have new student pilots. We have VFR-only pilots. And we have active and retired professional pilots with experience in everything from CRJs to 747s. Primary and advanced instruction is independently available from club members who are certified flight instructors. Regardless of experience, we all hold ourselves to high standards of safety, aircraft maintenance, and ongoing instruction. All of our members appreciate the cross-country friendly club rules, and many just enjoy the freedom of flight after work or on weekends.
