Inspired by AOPA’s Flying Club Campaign, JA aims to grow participation in the local general aviation community by offering a level of availability, service and quality unprecedented in a club environment.
Our goal is to facilitate future members in creating a self-sustaining organization comprised of top notch general aviation aircraft for all levels of pilots; from newly certificated to the seasoned veteran.
What is a flying club?
According to AOPA a flying club is an exclusive organization of pilots and aircraft formed to make flying more affordable for its members and form a bastion of camaraderie.
What works best for you?
Give us a call or stop in and let us know. We are still in the planning stages for the club; any and all input is welcome. Check in for upcoming focus groups and planning event dates.
JA will continue to host open, informational, focus group style, meetings for all interested parties through April ‘13. Feedback garnered at these sessions has proven to be crucial in assessing wants & needs of the future membership.
Next Meeting Dates (in the JA Conference room):
February 20th 7pm
March 7th @ 7pm
March 16th @ 12pm
How does a flying club work?
There is no simple answer to this question. Of 130 clubs the author surveyed (sampled from 650 nationally) each one differed from the last in structure and operation. Most clubs are a non-profit organization with a combination of equity and non-equity members and, on average, 11-15 members per aircraft.
