AVIATION EVENTS DURING THE GOLDEN AGE THAT INVOLVED THE GRAND CENTRAL AIR TERMINAL

THE TROJAN FLYING CLUB

Although not an event per se, the Trojan Flying Club (TFC) frequented the GCAT runway during the 1930s. It was responsible for organizing air meets in the general southern California area. TFC was founded as a limited liability company in California on July 17, 1931. It was a student-operated entity out of the University of Southern California. The Club owned at least two airplanes, the Timm NC887E, and one other one alluded to in a news article at the link.

Other colleges and universities in California had their own flying clubs. The various clubs got together for competitive air meets and other activities (sightseeing and, probably, civil charity). The link exhibits several news articles that describe such activities into the 1950s. The Trojan Flying Club, Ltd. was suspended (date unknown), and is now inactive.
