During last week’s AOPA Pilot Town Hall meeting at Dupage Airport in Suburban Chicago, I had the great pleasure of meeting with the team from SimpleFlight Radio and Start A Flight Club who formed Ground Effect Advisors — an advisory group aimed at growing the number of flying clubs in concert with AOPA’s Center to Advance the Pilot Community.
The group, with support from many industry partners, has put together a scholarship package for a group interested in forming a flying club. The package includes start up funding, advice, headsets, logoed shirts, and much more.
In talking with Al, Marc, and Todd, I found out that no one from Michigan or Wisconsin has applied for the scholarship. So, Michigan and Wisconsin pilots interested in starting a flying club — check out the links above and definitely put your name in the hat and get that club started!
