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: $115.00/hr     Skylane 182: $150.00/hr
These are costs incurred directly from operating the aircraft, based on Hobbs meter 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: $90 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
  • Debt Service on Aircraft Financing

Initiation Fees: $500.00
Currently the one-time initiation fee for joining the Chuckanut Flying Club is $500.00.  This is due upon application for membership, NOT as a requisite for an Introductory Flight or Lesson.
