“Assuming the certainty that some Caltech students are going to fly, someplace, somehow, our purpose is to provide the opportunity to fly more safely, to use better equipment, to give serious and detailed flight training, and to provide more available flying time for less money.” – Dave Cartwright, 1966, graduate student in chemical physics and first president of AACIT

The Aero Association of Caltech (informally known as the Caltech/JPL Flying Club) was established in 1966, incorporated as a non-profit organization. It has grown from 18 Caltech members and a single Cessna 150 to the current fleet of 9 airplanes and approximately 140 members. The majority of our members come from the Caltech/JPL community.
