"When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return." - Leonardo da Vinci
Lets face it - New York City isn't easy. It's expensive and difficult to keep a car here. This makes it hard for a pilot to enjoy his/her passion. Mass transit to the local airports is an arduous undertaking. So, if you're a pilot or aviation enthusiast in the New York City area that doesnt have the ways and means to actually fly anymore, this may be the social group you have been looking for. If you are looking for a more active flying group, I welcome you to visit our "sister" meetup group called: The Northeast Pilots Group. They are flying non-stop! (http://aviation.meetup.com/77/)
Otherwise...we invite you to come join the largest and fastest growing "hanger flying" Aviation Meetup around. Airline transport, commercial, private, sport, student, and aspiring pilots are all welcome, as is anyone with a love of flying. Our spouses, family, and friends may not always understand us, but with New York City Pilots you'll always have someone who shares your passion for flight.
