The MIT Flying Club’s primary purpose is to motivate, encourage, and facilitate an affordable, hands-on experience in flying. Originally formed in the late 1920s, the MIT Flying Club (MITFC) was reborn in the Fall of 2005 to provide members the opportunity to meet and interact with others who are interested in aviation.
Throughout the academic year, MITFC holds a variety of informal gatherings where members can meet to discuss aviation, listen to lectures, and watch movies. In addition, MITFC maintains a library of navigational and instructional materials. Several textbooks, a headset, U.S. sectionals, and airport facility directories are available for members to borrow. While based at MIT, club membership is open to everyone.
A “loggable” flight simulator is being readied for use by the end of the semester. In addition, MITFC will be holding various fly-outs to nearby destinations throughout the year.
The MIT Flying Club is organized by the MIT Flying Club Executive Board.
