Biographical or historical data
Edward F. New, William Sherman, and Dr. Charles W. Roller founded the Indianapolis Aero Club in 1933. Originally known as the Hoosier Flying Club, the Indianapolis Aero Club had thirty-five members who were interested whose aviation interest included the Indiana Air Tours, dead stick landings, and scavenger hunts. In 1983, the club membership dropped considerately and the club almost disbanded. Bob Bruce, took over the club as the president, and did much of the administrative work. In his first year, membership rose from forty-five members to 200. The club is active and its members are still aviation enthusiasts, but are not necessarily pilots themselves. The Indianapolis Aero Club has transitioned into a dinner club that monthly has a speaker give an aviation talk.
