The Clube's current restoration project is a 1973 Cessna 172M. It was donated to the Clube September 2020. Once complete, it will provide Clube Members with a Commercial and Instrument training platform. This project will include an engine overhaul, all new windows, a complete interior refurbishment, a modernized avionics package installation, and a complete strip and paint.
All work will be performed by the young Clube Members, and as is Clube policy, they will have earned the right to fly the aircraft for the price of fuel.
The Clube's flying restoration project began with the acquisition of the 1976 Cessna 150M in November of 2017 and has continued little by little until completion November 2020. The restoration included installation of all new plastic fairings and wing tips, a complete avionics package installation, all new windows, interior panel replacement, an engine overhaul, and a complete strip and paint.
All work was performed by the young Clube Members.

WORKING THE BRECKENRIDGE AIRSHOW 2017
TANGO THIRTY ONE AERO CLUBE volunteered with the CAF Gulf Coast Squadron - Flight Line Services at the 2017 Breckenridge, TX Airshow. Along with all the hard work, we enjoyed getting to meet the pilots and the teams that put these great shows together. There is a lot that goes into bringing an airshow to town and the Aero Clube Members got to see some great behind the scenes action and learned a lot about what goes into creating a safe and exciting airshow!
