Welcome to the Florida Aero Club
Education - Safety - Fellowship
COME FLY WITH US!
Founded in 1954 by the late Harry B. Collins of Miami. There are currently nine chapters plus members at large and we are still growing.
To promote aviation, private flying, and flight safety with mission and unmanned aviation enthusiasts.
To arrange group meeting called Fly-Ins in Florida.
To keep private flying healthy, affordable and protected. We are growing every day. Plans are in the works for new chapters as you read this.
See the chapter pages for locations and upcoming activities or email us to inquire about starting a chapter in your area. Most chapters have a fly-in, dinner meeting, or both, once a month. We mail a state newsletter called "FLIGHT LINES" every other month containing stories from each chapter and a calendar of events. Membership dues are a low $35 per year for an individual or a couple/family. The reward for being a member is high. Membership also makes a great gift for your favorite aviation enthusiast. Many chapters also have FAC merchandise for sale, such as golf shirts, t-shirts, hats, jackets, and license plates. While many of our members are both pilots and aircraft owners, there is neither a requirement to be a pilot nor to own your own aircraft. The main requirement is to have enthusiasm about aviation and a desire to be involved with 'what is happening' in Florida.
We DO NOT rent airplanes. Some of our members fly rental airplanes or belong to flying clubs that own aircraft and many own their own aircraft.
