    The Beech Aero Club (BAC) is the international type club for owners and pilots of the Beech Musketeer aircraft and its derivatives, the Sport, Super, Sundowner, Sierra, Duchess and Skipper aka Beech Aero Center aircraft. It traces its roots to the Spring of 1999 when James Fairhurst contacted Bob Steward for help in starting an e-mailing list for owners of the Beech Musketeer. James had met Bob through the Grumman Gang, a similar mailing list for owners and pilots of Grumman aircraft.

    Over the years from 1999 to 2004 Musketeer Mail, the mailing list that James founded, grew from a small number of grass roots members to over 1,100 members. During most of that time Bob served as the moderator of the list and its technical guru. The members of MM informally organized fly-ins and a maintenance clinic for their mutual enjoyment and education.

    By the summer of 2004 the list had reached critical mass and it was decided that the time had come to develop a formal structure that could better serve the needs and wants of the owners and pilots of Beech Aero Center aircraft. BAC was incorporated in Louisiana on July 4, 2004. The initial board of directors consisted of seven members spread from Louisiana to Canada. BAC opened its membership rolls to the public on July 30, 2004.

    BAC provides a wealth of services, information and events to promote the enjoyment of Beech Aero Center aircraft. These include a website loaded with technical information, organization of fly-ins and maintenance clinics, newsletter, a group insurance program, assistance with maintenance and operational problems and much more.

    Our motto is "All for one and one for all" and remember life's a Beech and then you fly. So if you own or are considering buying one of these fine aircraft, you owe it to yourself to join BAC.
