airfield aerialThe Sport Aircraft Builders Club was formed in 1973 by a group of people interested in aviation and aircraft building. Through the efforts of all our members through the years - we now have a facility second to none at Serpentine Airfield. Members can build their aircraft, hangar their aircraft, fly their aircraft, and join in the many social events (flying and non flying) that helps to make a club.
