PHX Aero Club


The History of Aero Club


The first Aero Club was formed in Washington D.C. in 1909 when only a handful of citizens believed that the “flying machine” would have staying power. The Club founders sought to draw national attention to the airplane and its potential. The Club’s primary mission remains intact to this day: “To foster and promote interest in the principles and development of aeronautics and to extend honors and hospitalities to eminent airmen.” Since 1909, other states, cities and countries have formed their own Aero Clubs with similar missions.

About PHX AERO Club


The Support Sky Harbor Coalition, in coordination with Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is proud to introduce the PHX Aero Club. The Club’s aim is to bring together aviation industry enthusiasts for the purpose of networking and education. All Arizona airports, airlines, trade associations, manufacturers, law firms and aviation enthusiasts are invited to become members.

“Aero Club is an excellent way to connect the aviation leaders in this community and I am so pleased to be a part of it.” - James Bennett, Director City of Phoenix Aviation Services
