New England Flying Club
What is a flying club?
A flying club is a group of pilots who come together in a cooperative effort to own and fly airplanes. A club has a group of board members who spearhead this effort and make policy with regard to rules and regulations governing the use of the aircraft. The board also ensures that the planes are airworthy and in compliance with FAA regulations.
A flying club fills the gap between renting from a flight school and owning a plane. Each club member pays monthly dues to cover fixed operating costs, such as insurance and tie downs, and an hourly rate to cover variable costs, such as fuel and oil. A flying club gives you, the pilot, greater flexibility and freedom in the use of the aircraft while the shared financial responsibility makes flying more affordable.
