Members are all owners and the initial stock purchase to buy into the club is $1,500. When you leave the club you get $1200 back.

Monthly dues are $130, and we like everyone to fly a minimum of one hour each month for proficiency, so the minimum monthly is $186. The hour is “use it or lose it” but if there is a month with bad weather or the plane(s) are down for maintenance, you can carry the proficiency hour over to the next month.

The Cessna 172 is $67 per hour, the AMD CH-2000 is $55 per hour and the Aeronca Champ is $42 per hour. All rates are wet (fuel included). The rates are adjusted as fuel prices or other costs, such as hangar rent and insurance, change.

As time goes on, you gain equity based on your time in the club in the event we ever have to shut it down. Right now the club is debt free and owns the Cessna and Aeronca outright. We have a bank note on the AMD which will be paid off by 2021. All three planes are hangered. We also lease an office in the terminal building for flight training or getting ready for a trip.

Aircraft scheduling is done on the BookOurPlane.com website.

We are talking about getting a cross country plane, possibly a Cessna 182. Right now we have about 13 members but need another 3 or 4 members before we get another plane.
