Why The Name?

USS Kearsarge (CV/CVA/CVS-33) was one of 24 Essex-class aircraft carriers completed during or shortly after World War II for the United States Navy. The ship was the third US Navy ship to bear the name, and was named for a Civil War Steam Sloop. Kearsarge was commissioned in March 1946. Modernized in the early 1950s as an attack carrier (CVA), she served in the Korean War, for which she earned two battle stars. In the late 1950s she was further modified to become an anti-submarine carrier (CVS). Kearsarge was the recovery ship for the last two-manned Project Mercury space missions in 1962-1963. She completed her career serving in teh Vietnam War, earning five battle stars. She was decommissioned in 1970, and sold for scrap in 1974.

The owner’s grandfather proudly served on the USS Kearsarge as a Naval Officer in WWII. The flight club is named in his honor.

Kearsarge Aviation Member Testimonials

  • After hearing about Kearsarge Aviation from a buddy, I really got the flying bug. After one flight with a veteran pilot I was hooked. As a rookie, I was obviously in no position to buy my own plane or even consider that really, so joining a flight club was a great choice. The wealth of knowledge from the group and the simplicity of scheduling flights for me was a huge selling point. I have over 15 flights now and am logging hours every week.
