Costs

Rates, Dues, and Initiation Fees

There are two costs associated with club membership: Monthly Dues and Hourly Rates for aircraft use.

Hourly Rates: Cherokee: $110/tach hr wet, Skylane 182: $130/tach hr wet
These are costs incurred directly from operating the aircraft, based on Tach Time.  Please note, these rates INCLUDE the following:

  • Fuel Costs – Home field AND while traveling
  • Aircraft Rental – Based on hourly rates the plane is flown
  • Regular FAA Recommended Maintenance Inspections based on hours the aircraft are flown
  • Engine Overhaul and Airframe Maintenance Reserves
  • No Overnight/Minimum Trip Charges

Monthly Dues: $120 per month, due the 1st of every month
These pay for fixed Aircraft & Administrative Costs (taxes, fees, etc.), that must be paid regardless of how much the aircraft are flown.  Other items included such as:

  • Annual Maintenance Inspections on the Aircraft
  • Hangar Rentals for each Club Aircraft
  • Your Portion of Insurance on the Aircraft
