ABOUT THE CLUB

Working

SHARE OWNERSHIP

Each membership represents an equity share in club assets. Membership lets you enjoy the privileges of ownership while sharing the responsibilities and costs.

SOCIALIZE & HAVE FUN

Members enjoy a variety of social activities. Some are aviation-centered, like seminars and workshops for ongoing education, fly-ins, hangar-flying, and community outreach events to promote general aviation. Other events are just for fun, like barbecues and the occasional trip to the local microbrewery.

LEARN

There's always more to learn in the world of aviation, and club membership provides many opportunities for learning. Whether you are starting primary training or working on honing advanced skills, the flying club is a great place to start.
