Advantages of a Flying Club

  • Lower cost than owning your own aircraft or renting.
  • Greater availability than rented: The average flying time per aircraft during a year is approximately one hour per day. The aircraft may be taken on trips that are overnight or a few days.
  • Club insurance normally covers the members' needs. FBO renters typically should carry renter's insurance.
  • Club members share experiences and flying.
