Flight Club 502 is a non-profit 501 (c) (3), based at Bowman Field in Louisville, KY,  The Club is dedicated to teaching young students about leadership and success through realistic goal setting in an aviation environment.  The Club was established in 2015 by a small group of high school students who wanted to inspire others to become successful in life while incorporating aviation and STEM subjects as a springboard for success.  Flight Club 502 is owned and operated by its youth members with professional adult supervision.  The Club members previously raised funds and purchased a Cessna 150 which allows them to learn to fly at a low cost

The "Four Fundamentals" of Flight Club 502 are designed to guide and support each student's development, learning and growth:
  • Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC):  The Club will incorporate both STEM and NGLC into ground training and flight training as well as afternoon programs and flight camps.
  • Entrepreneurship:  Club members learn entrepreneurship through planning and conducting after school programs and summer camps.  Club members are responsible for creating programs, producing budgets, marketing the courses and crafting the lesson plans.
  • Leadership and Decision-Making:  The Club uses aviation lessons to teach practical living skills.  The Club uses flight planning to teach life skills, while emergency procedures in the cockpit teaches Club members good decision-making when faced with life's issues, such as the use of drugs.  The Club teaches situational awareness in the airplane and how it translates to daily life.
  • Patriotism:  Club members learn to be grateful for our freedom and to be respectful of other and tolerant of their differences.
In 2017, led by a senior UPS aircraft maintenance technician and with the help of the local EAA Chapter, the club began building a Vans RV-12 experimental airplane.  Today, this airplane is nearing completion.  This project has provided an outstanding STEM learning experience for the members involved and also promoted workforce development.

Recently, the Club has been the recipient of the donation of a Piper Super Cruiser.  The Club has decided to raffle this plane in order to raise funds to buy an additional training airplane.  This will also allow the Club to provide additional aviation scholarships to those who are unable to pay.  To date 33 club members have Soloed, 12 have earned Private Pilot Licenses, 3 have earned Instrument Ratings and one has earned a Commercial Pilot License.
