How to Join

Joining the club is a simple 4-Step Process:

  • Complete the Online Application (below)
  • Attend a New Member Briefing
  • Schedule & Receive a Checkout in your Favorite Aircraft
  • That’s all there is to it!

A reservation is required to attend a New Member Orientation.  Once you complete the application process, you will have an opportunity to schedule yourself for one of the orientations that occur weekly and are currently held via Zoom.

NOTE:  Once you complete the application process, your account will be assessed the Initiation Fee AND first month’s dues.  This can not be prorated or credited if you decide to join  at a later date.  Please only fill out the application if you are ready to join.

When filling out the New Member app, you will need the following, in PDF format to be uploaded during the application process:

  • Pilot certificate, unless you are a student pilot or future pilot.
  • Medical certificate (if you have one).
