Flying Clubs allow for personal responsibility in scheduling and fueling your aircraft. With a variety of aircraft to choose from, clubs offer a breadth of experience in flying. For those seeking a structured environment, a Part 141 Flight School may be preferred, but Flying Clubs offer a chance to build time, travel, and gain real-world experience as well as gain Certificates and Ratings.

The Flying Club takes pride in offering its members an extensive selection of planes that they can use to develop their flying skills. From smaller planes for beginners, to more advanced models for seasoned pilots, the club has a diverse range of aircraft to cater to everyone’s needs.

At The Flying Club, we believe that the cost of learning to fly should not be prohibitive. That’s why we offer competitive rates that vary depending on the plane you wish to learn to fly in. Our most affordable option is the reliable Cessna 150 that is valued at $54.94 per hour.

In addition to this base price, there are other expenses to consider such as fuel, instruction, testing fees, headsets, and cockpit supplies. Despite the other costs, The Flying Club is considerably more reasonable than the traditional flight school.

By joining the club, you’re also maximizing your savings especially when you’re building up your flying hours. For instance, if you need to accumulate a total of 250 hours of flying time to qualify for a Commercial Certificate, you can significantly cut down on your expenses by becoming a member of The Flying Club.

A flying club lets you learn to fly at your own speed. If you can fly every day, you can get a Private Pilot Certificate quickly.

But if you’re busy and can’t fly a lot, that’s fine too. The quickest we’ve seen a club member earn their certificate at High Sierra Pilots was in 29 days! However, most people take 4 to 6 months.

Yes!  One of the main advantages to a Flying Club membership is that you can take the aircraft on multi-day trips and travel the country in style!  About 65% of our Membership are current pilots who use the aircraft to travel by air to  far off places with their friends and family.

As a member, you can use any airplane from our fleet. Choose the plane you expect to fly the most and buy time in it. If you end up flying a different plane, we’ll charge you the difference in price.

For instance, if you buy time in a Cessna 172 and end up flying a Cessna 150, your time in the C150 will go twice as far because it costs almost half as much per hour.
