Founded by Charles (pictured on left) and Edith Bombardier in 1977 the International 180/185 Club, Inc. was a rebirth of an earlier effort called 180's International run by Baja Bush Pilots founder Arnold Senterfitt. The original goal was very limited; to have a small group of friends with similar type planes to go fishing, camping, etc. with. The club has grown since then into something more, with over 1100 members in 24 countries.
Past presidents have been Charles "Bomber" Bombardier, 1977-1990, Howard "Buz" Landry 1991-1994, Johnny Miller 1995-1999; Scott White 1999-2002; Dave Hayden 2002 -2006; Keith Peterman 2006-2010, Bob Warner 2010-2014 and Steve Goebel 2014-2018. The current Club President is Harris Butler.
