MAFC members are people like you - most of us, at some point in the past, looked up at a plane overhead and thought, "Wouldn't it be great to learn to fly one of those things?" Most of us probably never thought we could, or that it was something ordinary people really did. But we were wrong. Our members generally fly:

  • To keep their aviation skills current and further safety of flight to the best of their ability. A pilot is always learning.
  • For Recreation - the feeling of freedom, the fun, the pure enjoyment of spending some time in the sky.
  • For Family & Personal Trips - the ability to get away and come back when you want to, without concern for traffic on the road, or airline schedules.
