The Aero Club of Cuba was formed during a week of exhibitions of Curtiss aviators in Havana, which was 28 Jan. - 7 Feb. 1911. The club's first aviation meet opened 22 Mar. 1911 at La Coronel, near Havana, and events continued through 26 March. It joined the Aero Club of America circa May 1911.

It appears that there were 35 original members. Officers in May 1911 included Regino du Repair de Trufflin, president; Dr. Ricardo Dolz, vice president; Dr. Manuel M. Coronado, secretary; Evelio Cuervo, vice secretary; Juan Arguelles, treasurer; and Dionisio Velasco, consulting engineer.
