Sundowners is a term used to identify a member of either club Forms Two Clubs In One

The Sundowners, Inc. had its beginnings in Lee County, Florida in November 1965.  The seven original members formed a flying club for the usual reason… to share expenses.  Because they were also boaters, they decided to provide a needed community service of a boat search  patrol along one hundred twenty miles of Lee County coastline.  The club’s first patrols were flown in leased aircraft.

The Sundown Patrol of Lee County, Inc. was formed when the pilots’ club needed additional help observing.  The observers’ group comprises the majority of The Sundown Patrol.  Our aircraft are still provided by Sundowners, Inc., the original pilots club.
