HOW DOES YOUR FLYING CLUB WORK?
Each member owns an equal share of N739EZ, our prized 1978 Cessna 172N. Every member receives their own set of keys and is able to schedule flight time using the club's online calendar. Members pay a monthly fixed rate to cover hangar, insurance, annual inspection and AD costs. Members pay an hourly cost for flight time which covers fuel, engine and prop replacement, 50-hour inspections and oil changes as well as unplanned maintenance. Each member owns their share for as long as they choose and may sell their share for whatever price they set. Our club is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors.
Share prices are set by each individual member and our Board advises members on fair market value.
Recent transactions have ranged between $8000-$9000 per share.
Monthly membership dues are currently set at $144.
Flight time cost is currently set at $125/hour (wet).
Flight time billed on tachometer, not hobbs.
Our club is fully reserved for the next engine replacement.
HOW CAN I JOIN LOW FLYING ANGELS?
To be eligible for membership, you must be a licensed pilot with a minimum of 100 hours of flight time. We have 12 members and are looking to add 12 more. With the expansion of our club, we plan to purchase a second aircraft of similar type and value to our existing C172. This will allow for a broader set of flight experiences as well enhance the social opportunities among our membership. If you are interested in becoming a member, please reach out and let us know!
