We have a Flying Club; offer outreach programs, which include Discover Aviation Day (May 19th in 2018), airport tours, school career fairs and library programs; and we encourage aviation networking through meetings (first Saturday of each month) and cookouts (third Friday of each month throughout the summer) at the Discover Aviation hangar at the Lorain County Airport. If you are interested in becoming a member of DAC or would like more information, please check out our website – discoveraviationcenter.org - or contact us directly (info below).
The 3rd Friday of each month starting around 6:30 the Discover Aviation Center's Flying Club hosts a cookout in the DAC hangar at the Lorain County Airport off of Russia Rd. All are welcome! Wonderful opportunity to share in the camaraderie of your fellow aviation enthusiasts, or just a good excuse to hang out at the airport for a bit!
