When you join a flying club, you stop being a renter an start being an owner. The difference is significant. You, and your fellow members, take pride in your airplanes. You also get to realize the advantages of no longer padding someone else's profit margins.
We are a group of over 50 like-minded pilots who want to make flying easy, accessible, and affordable. We also like getting together for monthly meetings, hangar parties, or fly-outs to talk about flying and learn something new. We frequently have special speakers attend our meetings to talk about various flying-related topics, and our instructors frequently discuss piloting technique, tips and tricks, and safety steps. We go out of our way to ensure that our airplanes are operated in a safe and efficient manner, and everyone takes pride in keeping the airplanes in great cosmetic shape.
Our fleet covers a wide spectrum, from the ubiquitous Cessna 172 and Piper Archer, through the Cessna 172RG and Cessna 182, to our high-performance, 165kt Beechcraft Debonair. Most aircraft have IFR-certified GPS units and are frequently used for cross-country flights. Our flexible scheduling rules allow for taking the airplanes for even long trips of up to 2 weeks within minimal daily minimums.
Our initiation and monthly costs are some of the lowest in the area, in some cases hundreds or thousands of dollars less than other flying clubs.
If you are looking for a fleet of great airplanes, a good value, and a great group of members, the Flying Club of Kansas City is for you. See the links above for information on how to join.
