The Coleman AeroClub (CAC) is the only military nonprofit flying organization in Europe, open to member forces of NATO, the United States Armed Forces, DoD Civilians and their family members.
CAC is undergoing changes at this time. Due to the shift of US military presence out of the Mannheim-Heidelberg area and up to Wiesbaden, Coleman Barracks, the original home and namesake of the CAC, is closed to flying.
The club is in the process of moving our office to the Wiesbaden area - we are operating as a private organization within the Wiesbaden Military Community. We are now flying again. The Coleman Aero Club will retain its original name in honor of Lt Col Wilson D. Coleman.*

*Coleman Barracks' name (formerly Coleman Army Airfield) commemorates Lieutenant Colonel Wilson D. Coleman, who was posthumously awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for single-handedly halting an enemy tank column, which contributed substantially to the success of the break-through operation into the heart of France.
