Upper Valley Flying Club is a 50+/- member Federally-recognized 501(c)7 non-profit flying club that operates year-round at the Lebanon, New Hampshire Municipal Airport (KLEB), a Class D towered airport with two 5000+ foot runways.

On a club fly-out, members visit the Blue Angels at Brunswick Executive Airport. Our Chief CFI, Dave Kent (fifth from right), is a Blue Angel Alum.
The club’s trusty  Cessna 172R on approach.

The club maintains two aircraft, a  2000 Cessna 172R Skyhawk and a 1978 Cessna 182RG Skylane  (high performance, retractable gear). The 172s is our “local” plane, great for VFR and IFR training and can be taken for short cross country flights. The 182 is robust IFR travel plane capable of carrying four adults with luggage at 150 knots and is allowed on multi-day trips. It has an Aspen glass primary flight display with AOA and synthetic vision, ADSB in and out with Bluetooth, a new touch-screen GTN 650 WAAS navigator, and basic autopilot. All members share the same benefits and voting rights. However, access to the aircraft depends on flying experience.
