  • Membership Dues: $160/month (FREE flying included)
  • Up to 1.7 hours of FREE flying is included with your membership dues each month ($135 value).
  • Click our aircraft above for pricing details.

* Insurance is Included

Our flying club model provides you with full hull and liability insurance when flying our club aircraft. This is the safest way to rent aircraft that does not rely on "non-owned aircraft" (renters) insurance or waivers of subrogation.

How it Works

Each month, you are required to pay the monthly membership dues to maintain your membership and club insurance coverage. With your membership dues you will receive 2 club credits that can be exchanged for FREE flight time in any of the club aircraft. The exchange rate is different for each aircraft, based on the insurance and operating costs. Club credits roll over in your account if they are not used every month. After your club credits are consumed, your rental will be billed at the normal rental rate.

Our club is an open rental club and you pay month by month. You are not required to pre-purchase ownership shares or pay any fees other than monthly dues.

Leaving the Club

Your membership dues are billed month to month. There is no minimum term or obligation.

Say NO to Special Waiver Fees and Surcharges

Research rental rates at other operators and you will find fuel surcharges and special insurance waiver fees, increasing their advertised pricing. With our club model, you are paying about $25/month for membership and insurance coverage and the remainder of your $160/month membership dues goes towards flight hours.
