Q: What about family memberships?

Q: What about cross-country availability and daily minimums?

A: Our planes typically fly around 300 hours per year, but with some advanced planning cross countries are easily scheduled. You will also find that our members are typically fairly flexible and are frequently willing to work with each other to resolve scheduling conflicts. The Club rules also require that any cross countries exceeding 3 nights be approved by the Board. Such approval is routinely granted, but the process is in place to retain an element of fairness in scheduling. To get an idea of how busy our planes are, sign in as a guest on our on-line scheduling system.

A: As for daily minimums, the Club imposes a 1-hour per day minimum. In other words, if you take the airplane for 5 days, you must put at least 5 hours on the airplane or be billed for the difference.

Q: What if I am only a student pilot, can I still join?

A: Yes, we welcome students and have a number of Instructors who can help you get your license.

Q: How much does a private pilot’s license cost?

A: The FAA requires that a private pilot applicant have at least 40 hours of flight time, though most people require 45 or so in order to be fully prepared for their checkride. Of that 45 hours, approximately 35 will be with an instructor.
