Phoenix Flyers, Inc.

Phoenix Flyers is a 501(c)(7) non-profit, member-owned, social flying club based in Phoenix, Arizona. The club was founded in 1958 at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport for educational, social and recreational purposes involving the proper use and enjoyment of aircraft and the improvement of flying skills.

The club owns four aircraft; two Cessna Skylanes, a Piper Comanche and a Piper Archer. In 1997 the club moved its aircraft from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport to the Chandler Municipal and Phoenix Deer Valley Airports.

In order to provide equal access to the aircraft, we rotate all of the aircraft between Chandler and Deer Valley every four months, so that there’s always one Cessna and one Piper at each airport.

Our goal is to maintain an active membership and strive to provide excellent, well maintained aircraft at reasonable rates. Isn't it about time you joined the Phoenix Flyers family?

Board of Directors

A board of directors makes the Club policy and manages Club affairs. The six board members are elected by the general membership at the annual meeting in January. The term of office is two years with three directors being elected each year. The officers of the club are selected at the first meeting of the board of directors following the annual meeting.

The officers of the corporation are president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, maintenance officer, and operations officer. Additional officers may be elected or appointed as deemed necessary, having the authority and duties prescribed by the Board of Directors.

Regularly scheduled board meetings are held monthly on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:30 PM. They alternate between the terminal building conference room or pilot lounge at Chandler airport and the Cutter Aviation conference room at Deer Valley airport.
