There are now more than 400 flying clubs in AOPA's Flying Club Network and another 133 clubs in the process of forming. AOPA recently launched a new version of its online Flying Club Finder, making it easier for pilots or others interested in aviation to find a club in their area. "Clubs are a great way to build a stronger community in which more people earn pilot certificates, pilots are more active and the flying lifetime of pilots is extended," said Adam Smith of AOPA's Center to Advance the Pilot Community.
