The Club Board of Directors has lifted restrictions on flight training. This does not mean all club instructors will be teaching or that an instructor who is teaching will resume a full schedule. It only means that instructors are free to decide for themselves, along with their students, when flying together makes sense. The Club COVID protocols are still in place and members are expected to comply.
Unfortunately, the climbing rates of COVID-19 infection locally have forced the club to suspend in-person instruction until conditions improve. Club aircraft remain available to licensed members. As soon as conditions improve, instruction will resume.
Our third aircraft is online after a rigorous check out and annual. This is a beautiful very low time aircraft. In November, it will go to Green Mountain Avionics in Middlebury, Vermont, for avionics upgrades (additional G5 HSI, Garmin 650 navigator, new audio panel and transponder) that will make it almost operationally identical to 685DW.
We have a third airplane—N5175Y. It’s a 2002 Cessna 172S, low time airframe and engine. We’ll be bringing it online about October 1st. Rate will be $135/hr wet.
The AI is being replaced with a Garmin G5 glass attitude indicator.
The Board of Directors met September 2nd, 2020, and reviewed the club’s financials, and elected to adjust rates to compensate for insurance increases (approximately 23%) and inflation. The new rates for club aircraft are:
- N685DW Cessna 172R $125/tach hour wet.
- N9106C Cessna 182RG $198/tach hour wet.
The board also elected to adjust dues as of January 1, 2021 to $125/month. Dues will remain at $110/month until then.
The club has resumed operations following lifting of COVID-19 stay at home orders. We are following recommended COVID-19 protocols including hand washing, mask wearing and disinfecting aircraft each flight. We also require pilots certify they have no known contact with COVID-19 and have not visited hot spots within the last fourteen days.
The club membership is currently full and we have a long waiting list. New students are welcome to apply to join the club but we recommend students contact local flight schools.

Currently the club is not conducting any in-person activities such as instruction or meetings. When conditions change we will make a notice here. The club aircraft are available to licensed members.
Here’s a look at how we use our aircraft. With its shorter days and more difficult weather, flying time typically drops to the lowest level in January.
Our regular monthly meetings are back indoors for the winter. Check club emails or if you are not a member inquire through our contact form about where meetings take place. Meetings are always the 3rd Thursday of the month at 6pm.
The club will begin summer BBQ meetings June 20th. If you’re not a member and would like to join us send a message and we will add you to the list. We host our BBQs at our hangar at the Lebanon Airport (weather permitting).
