Contact Us if interested in flying club membership availability.

The Freestate Flying Club is a social and flying club based at College Park Airport, in suburban Maryland. Members of the club share an airplane, as well as participate in social meetings, flying events, aviation safety and skills building, airplane systems, and the camaraderie of like-minded aviation enthusiasts.
