The same way a flight needs a crew working in coordination, the Aviation Club needs its board members to keep it en route.

"The desire to fly is an idea handed down to us by our ancestors who, in their grueling travels across trackless lands in prehistoric times, looked enviously on the birds soaring freely through space, at full speed, above all obstacles, on the infinite highway of the air."

For centuries humankind has watched up to the sky and dreamed of flying. We are the first who are lucky enough to be born in the same century as aviation did. Living the dream of our ancestors is a privilege.
