Lancaster Aero Club
The Lancaster Aero Club was chartered in 1919, making it the oldest continuous club of its kind in the country. Its history is rooted in the great barnstorming era, when after the Armistice thousands of long winged, low bellied JN-4’s were available for as little as $50! The rural skies and cow pastures at that time were full of free-lance and organize “flying circuses” putting on dare-devil shows and hauling passengers.
The Lancaster Aero Club has never owned its own aircraft; it was not conceived as a flying club. Rather, its primary aspect is social — providing a place and time and opportunity for pilots to gather and commune with their common love of the sky. The club’s purpose has not changed since the charter was sealed December 6, 1919.
“The purpose for which said corporation is formed is the promotion of a social organization or club, composed in whole or in part of persons owning aeronautic inventions for personal or private use, for the development of the science of aeronautics and kindred sciences, and for the encouragement of aerial navigation, conferences, expositions, congresses and contests.”
The club was formed by Dodge, Long, Raub, Steinman, and Brown, Lancaster businessmen for the promotion of a social organization – composed in whole or part of persons owning aeronautical inventions for personal or private use, for the development of the service of aeronautics and kindred services, and for the encouragement of aerial navigation, conferences, expositions, congresses, and contests. Original membership was 25.
Meetings are held four times a year, traditionally in March, May, August, and November.
