Cites Cost For Hangars, Aircraft Maintenance
The U.S. Air force said Tuesday that it plans to close the
Wright-Patterson Aero Club, which has been in existence since 1954
and has 321 members.
The Air Force Materiel Command leadership has endorsed a
recommendation to close the club, citing a loss of $229,000 over
the past four years, according to the Dayton Daily News.
Most of that expense has reportedly gone into maintaining the
club's building and aircraft.
Base spokeswoman Laura McGowan said in an e-mail to the paper
that the club membership was informed of the recommendation on
Tuesday, and the club was to close within 60 days of final approval
from the Air Force, which has the recommendation under review. Base
officials said that maintaining the flying club was affecting their
ability to support other recreational programs.
