The Cessna 150-152 Fly-In Foundation

The Cessna 150-152 Club has been the go-to place for information about the care and operation of the World’s Most Popular Two-Place Airplane since its inception in 1980.

The Cessna 150-15 Fly-In has grown from a simple gathering of Cessna 150s and 152s to one of the best annual aviation events in the country.

Put them together and you have the Cessna 150-152 Fly-In Foundation.

In 2009 The Cessna 150-152 Fly-In Foundation was formed for the sole purpose of planning, organizing, and running the annual Cessna 150-152 Fly-In when it became a bit too much for the Club owner to handle effectively. From 2009 through 2019 the Foundation and the Club were completely separate entities.

In 2019 the Foundation and the Club became one when the Foundation purchased the Cessna 150-152 Club. Now the Foundation manages the day-to-day operation of the Club and plans and runs the annual Fly-In.
