Frequently Asked Questions
Is the club accepting new members?
As of 2019, the club is at capacity and we are not accepting members without a corporate sponsor.
Can I start flying right away? How long does it take to get my license?
Currently, there is a wait list. Time to start flying could be between 2-4 months. We have certified instructors ready to start your training when the wait list clears. Time required to complete training depends on how often you fly. The FAA requires a minimum of 40 hours for your private pilots certificate. It is common it to take anywhere from 3 to 6 months.

Yes currently certified pilots can join the club and rent the airplanes for use. There will be a mandatory check ride conducted by one of our instructors.
