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.
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.
Membership is granted based on aircraft and instructor availability. We have a limited number of memberships available for licensed pilots with more than 150 hours total flight time. Membership is currently closed for students. We expect to be able to take additional student members in 2023. To join the wait list please apply by filling out our application form with a one-time application fee of $100.
Monthly dues are $125 and cover member insurance—no additional insurance is required. Each aircraft flown requires a contribution to the club, which can be made in installments. Those interested only in the 172 contribute $900. Pilots with high performance and retractible endorsements, which can be earned in the club with an instructor, may take an advanced check ride and fly the 182 after making an additional $950 contribution. Questions: Send an inquiry through our contact form.
Club events happen year round. We have a regular meeting the 3rd Thursday of each month, 6pm, at our hangars with a cookout in summer months and at local restaurants during winter months. We also have occasional safety and informational seminars. Events are usually open to non-members as well as members.
