About Ann Arbor Airport

We hope that this Library section will be a valuable resource for Flyers members and our other guests. The links at left lead to a page of other useful aviation resources on the Web and a page about Ann Arbor Airport. Below is some additional information about the Flyers' background and history. This section is slated for future expansion. Please email the Webmeister if you have suggestions or contributions.
Flyers History
The Michigan Flyers date back to before 1920. We participated in the first national airmeet of the National Intercollegiate Flying Association (NIFA) in 1929, and were a primary force in the growth of NIFA over the years. Former students of the club have gone on to the airlines, the military (including the Blue Angels), and many other aviation careers.

The club in its current form was incorporated in 1969 by a group of aerospace engineering students. The philosophy then and now is to provide quality aircraft and facilities for members with particular emphasis on education. In 28 years, we have grown from one leased aircraft and a handful of members to a seven-aircraft fleet and 400 members.
