Upper Valley Flying Club is a non-profit flying club that operates year-round 24/7 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 172 Skyhawk and a 1978 Cessna 182RG Skylane (high performance, retractable gear). The 172 is our “local” plane, great for VFR and IFR training and can be taken for short cross country flights. It stays close to home. The 182 is robust IFR travel plane capable of carrying 1300 pounds 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.
The club currently has 36 members of all ages. We are accepting new member applications. Prospective members apply by filling out our application form with a one-time application fee of $100.
Monthly dues are $150 ($75 for unlicensed students) and covers member insurance. Each aircraft flown requires a refundable deposit, which can be made in installments.* Student members and those interested only in the 172 make a deposit of $900 (students may defer 1/2 the deposit until after receiving their license). Pilots with 150+ total hours plus high performance and retractible endorsements may take an advanced check ride and fly the 182 after making an additional $950 deposit. 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 good weather and at Granite Air Center winter months, both at the Lebanon Airport. We also have occasional safety and informational seminars. The club presents at Lebanon Airport’s annual aviation expo, Wings and Wheels, in September. Events are usually open to non-members as well as members.
If you’d like to receive information about our events let us know and we’ll add you to our email list.
*Refund of aircraft deposit is contingent upon member being in good standing and the club having funds. In some cases, an new member may have to join or assets sold before refunds are issued.
