Who are the United Flying Octogenarians?
Founded in 1982 by a group of 31 aviators over the age of 80, the United Flying Octogenarians (UFO) now has a membership of over 1,500 men and women. When each of our members joined, at the age of 80 or older, he or she was still flying as Pilot-in-Command. Today, many of us are no longer at the controls of an aircraft, but our love of aviation still binds us to this elite group.
The UFO is an international, non-profit organization with members in the United States including the U.S. Virgin Islands, Canada, Argentina, Australia, France, and the United Kingdom.
