As published in national news and major trade publications, there is a huge shortage of qualified aviation professionals to satisfy the needs of the industry. This is evident in the daily news with numerous reports of flight cancellations. From airline pilots to the aircraft maintenance professionals, and all support roles in between there is a worldwide shortage of individuals to fill these rolls.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To provide the aviation community with enthusiastic and uniquely qualified young individuals to fill tomorrows needs in a variety of capacities in the aviation industry.

The Aero Clube was established to provide interested youngsters from the ages of 15 to 20 access to a real world aviation environment under the supervision of seasoned aviation professionals.

The program involves the Clube Members in the restoration and maintenance of primary training type aircraft. For their sweat equity investment in these maintenance activities, they are allowed to fly the aircraft for the price of fuel.

Clube Member participation in learning the aircraft through the maintenance activities earns them a seat in the cockpit to advance their flight training.

The Clube currently owns two 1976 Model Cessna 150M's. The young Clube Members have completed a full restoration of one of the aircraft and a partial restoration of the other. They currently use these two aircraft for their basic primary flight trainers.

The Clube also owns a 1973 Cessna 172M which is currently undergoing a frame-up restoration. Completion of the restoration is anticipated around September 2022 at which time the aircraft will become an advanced flight trainer providing a platform for a Commercial and Instrument ratings.

The Clube also owns a 1941 Taylorcraft and a 1946 Cessna 120. once restored, these two aircraft will provide the Clube Members with aircraft that will be used to earn their tail-wheel endorsement in.

The flight experience earns the Clube Members FAA Pilot Certificates while the maintenance experience qualifies those that are interested to earn their FAA Mechanic Certificates.

The Clube needs to expand its financial resources in order to seek hangar space for expansion and to acquire future projects, parts and materials in order to expand from its current capacity.

The Clube Directors are a mix of lifelong aviation professionals and a doctor.

For the short term, the Clube is currently based and operating out of one of the Director's personal hangar. That Director has adequate tools and resources to accomplish all maintenance task on the training aircraft however, as the Clube grows, it needs more space.

The Clube has additional volunteer Flight Instructors and Aircraft Maintenance Technicians to oversee all activities and ensure all safety precautions are met and tasks are properly completed.

The Clube Members have completed one complete frame-up restoration and a partial restoration of it's two 1976 Cessna 150M's. These two aircraft are currently being used for basic primary flight training.

The Clube is nearing completion of a frame-up restoration of a 1973 Cessna 172M which will be used for advanced Flight Training.

By attending EAA's AirVenture the past several years, the Clube has gained the attention of several aviation industry manufacturers who have become sponsors of the Aero Clube in the way of providing parts and services in support of the Clube's restoration projects.
