MISHAWAKA PILOTS CLUB
Founded in 1947, The Mishawaka Pilots Club has a long history in the Michiana community for providing a path to economical flight instruction, rental, and aircraft ownership. The Club promotes responsible airmanship and strives to keep a safe and clean presence for our neighbors.

light sport, home builts, and helicopters. There is currently Hangar space available in several sizes for purchase and possibly rental.
