We’re all about flying - how about you?
Join Aviation Explorer Post 62!
East Hill Flying Club, Ithaca Airport

If you’re someone between 14 and 20 who loves flying or wants to learn more about the exciting world of aviation, then our post is for you!


Post 62 meets on second Sunday of each month at 3:00pm at the East Hill Flying Club
Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport, 62 Brown Rd. Ithaca NY.

We visit museums and airports, have guest speakers at our meetings to talk about what they’ve done in aviation - airline pilots or recreational flyers, instructors or students, controllers or drone pilots. We’ve visited local airports and air traffic control towers; gone to air shows; done ground school instruction… you’ll help plan what we do!
