Eximious Flying Club is a southeast Michigan aviation and social organization, formed in 1958 to promote safe, economical, fun flying. We currently fly a Piper Archer II and a recently-acquired high-performance Commander 114 aircraft, based at Oakland-Troy Airport in Troy, Michigan, and Coleman A. Young Airport in Detroit, Michigan.
Throughout our half-century of operation, our mission has been:
- To encourage interest in general aviation
- To develop fellowship among our members and with the community
- To enable our members to train and fly at reasonable cost.

Today, we own and fly a well-equipped mid-1980s Piper Archer based at Coleman A. Young Municipal Airport (DET), and a high-performance Rockwell Commander 114 based at Oakland-Troy Airport (VLL).
As befits a 21st-century organization, we have a substantial and growing Internet presence, enabling our members to schedule and plan flights, share knowledge, and network with the Internet and the world.
