We have over 40 members who own, build, & fly aircraft from ultralights, Cessna, Piper, Pacer, Citabria, Mooney, Navion, Beechcraft, Swift, Starduster, Champ, and more. We have members that enjoy radio controlled model aircraft as well. Members simply enjoy aviation, and love to participate in business, technical, and social functions. Our main social function is the monthly breakfast served on the 2nd Saturday of every month at Carlisle 4M3 AR from 8:00-10:00 AM.
