New Aircraft!

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.

New Rates

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.

Operations Resume

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.
