Our club is open to anyone interested in sharing the joy of flying. We have a membership that ranges from student pilots, to airline captains, to retirees who have devoted their lives to aviation. Applicants must possess a valid FAA Medical Certificate or a BasicMed exemption, or in the case of a student pilot, a valid FAA Student Pilot/Medical Certificate. Applicants must not have objectionable FAR violations or accident history. Costs include a refundable $500 membership deposit, a $80 initiation fee, and the first month club dues of $50. Pilots and primary students seeking instruction must complete a check ride with one of our instructors and all members need to complete a ground check of the planes, club process, and hangar etiquette.
We believe we have the best deal in town in terms of reliable, safe and cost effective aircraft. Maybe the best in the entire Bay Area. We have a “fleet” of two Cessna 172s, both of which are professionally maintained and are hangered in San Carlos. The planes are generally available most of the time, and can be reserved on the internet through ScheduleMaster. Flight time is between $135 and $150 per hour wet, tach time. We have two instructors, both of whom have well over 1,500 hours flight time (one has over 13,000 hours!). Both have ATP ratings and are certified to teach instrument flight. Their rates are lower than those offered by other local clubs. We have Wash’n’Wax parties, holiday dinners, and other events. We enjoy each other’s company and have a supportive environment. And, of course, we fly!

Club Socials

Every February the club hosts an annual breakfast and general membership meeting. Each December members and their families meet at a local restaurant for a Holiday Dinner and review of the year.

Member Meetings

Each month, the club has a board/membership meeting where club business is conducted including finances, maintenance, instruction, and member satisfaction. All members are welcome.

Hangar Events

Wash and Wax Parties 2-3 times per year members get together to “wash n wax” the planes, straighten up the hangar, swap stories about flying, and share refreshments.
