What are GFPA members saying?

During my short membership in GFPA I found it to be one of the best the flying clubs I’ve experienced.  Having flown for pleasure and professionally for 38 years I can attest to the quality of GFPA. Excellent maintenance, professionally run and great members who really take care of and have pride in the aircraft. I would highly recommend the club to anyone learning to fly or just for the enjoyment of flying.

Great, well maintained airplanes at a far better cost than going to an FBO to rent. Used the instructors available through the the club to obtain my instrument rating at a lower cost than would have otherwise been possible. If you like to fly or want to learn to fly I highly recommend the Greater Flints Pilots Association!

I was a member and on the Board of Directors of the GFPA for 10 years. In my opinion, a flying club is the best and least expensive way to learn to fly and/or as an alternative to owning your own aircraft. GFPA members ARE owners – not renters. All of the aircraft are meticulously maintained and very well-equipped for both VFR and IFR operations.

It is a true pleasure being part of this local Michigan flying club.  I have lived in the flint are for over 30 years and my only complaint is I wish I would have found out about GFPA earlier.  I not only started flying with GFPA, I received my private pilots license and instrument rating using GFPA instructors.  I am a member for life. 

Great Planes & Great People

GFPA is the only option in the greater Flint area for a flying club that I could find. Not only does the club offer incredible aircraft, but the availability of the aircraft is great. I am not in the position to own an aircraft and I honestly think I would have never even learned to fly without GFPA. Very thankful to have them and the great members that keep it as the best flying club around.

I would not be flying without GFPA
