About Our Flying Club

Are you a pilot looking for other pilots who love to fly as much as you do?  Have you considered flying lessons with a flight school, but want a better investment?

Greater Flint Pilots Association was incorporated on March 19, 1975. Today, as a modern, progressive and professional non-profit corporation, it is dedicated to the safety and advancement of aviation.  We believe that you will find GFPA to be one of the finer flying clubs in the state of Michigan.  You don’t need to take our word for it.  Check out this discussion of various flying clubs and see how GFPA stacks up.

Ready to upgrade to a larger airplane?

Cessna Skylane 182T
The GFPA 2001 Cessna Skylane 182T

GFPA has some of the best high performance aircraft in Michigan.  Our flagship, N3559E, a 2001 Cessna 182T… new engine, new leather, new panel, new paint. Of course… It’s (like) new!  A crisp 145kts (well, maybe downhill.  But, you can still plan at 140kts!) A KLN94 GPS coupled to a KMD-550 Multi Function Display and a JP Instruments engine monitor round out the package.

Student pilots are welcome. Many GFPA members pursue advanced ratings, such as instrument rating, commercial rating, and flight instructor (CFI).  Several of the GFPA members are Michigan flight instructors and can prepare you for primary and advanced ratings.  All GFPA instructors teach on a part time basis and make themselves available as their personal schedule permits.
