New Rates

As of January 1st, club rates are as follows: Dues: $175/mo • 172: $83/hr tach • 182: $121/hr tach.

These changes replace the pre-buy program.

182 Discounts

The club is trying an experiment. 182 pilots will be able to purchase block time in the 182 for a discounted rate of $165/hour so long as we have 300+ hours committed per year. The first option to reserve will be open May 15-29 for the period June 1-December 31, 2022.

Student Membership Full

We are sorry to report that the club cannot take additional student members for some time, probably not until some time in 2023. We recommend people looking for instruction look into Laconia, Keene or Concord flight schools.

Flight Training Resumes

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.

Flight Training Suspended…Again

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.

N5175Y Online

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.

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.
