Our Planes

Dawn Patrol Flying Club is a 2 aircraft, 24-member, equity-based club located at Canton - Plymouth Mettetal Airport (1D2).  We have 2 beautiful, well-maintained planes that have many upgrades including new paint schemes on both.  We maintain an engine reserve fund as well as an ongoing aircraft improvement fund.  Both planes are kept in very secure, enclosed hangars (shown in background of pictures).  We have two aircraft, a 1976 Cessna 177B Cardinal, and a 1975 Cessna 172 Skyhawk II.
