Founded in 1974, Del Amo Flyers is an aviation-oriented club based in Torrance, California.  We are a socially active group of people who come together for monthly fly-ins and dinner meetings, annual hangar and Christmas parties and other ad-hoc events.

We are always looking for new members.  You do not need to be a pilot or own an aircraft to join - just someone who is interested in flying, aircraft and aviation.  Our membership consists of approximately 100 individuals and families and includes active pilots, student pilots, retired pilots and nonpilots along with their spouses or significant others.  Our member dues are $38 per year (July 1 through June 30).

Here are some of the reasons that people join Del Amo Flyers:

Although some of of topics can be technical, most of our programs are designed to be of interest to the non-pilot spouse.
 
thumb CIMG0105MingleWe are a very social group who enjoy flying together and interacting together.  Except for August and December, we hold a dinner meeting (which includes a presentation) every month on the 3rd Wednesday at Palos Verdes Golf Club (3301 Via Campesina, Palos Verdes Estates, CA 90274). In August we have our annual Hangar Party and in December, our annual Christmas Party. All of our events, fly-ins, dinner meetings, our annual hangar and Christmas parties, are designed to provide a fun, social environment.
