Our Community

The Cascade Flyers consists of 30 members, each pilot has a minimum of 200 total hours of flight time or an instrument rating. Members purchase an equity share in the aircraft and pay a low monthly dues to cover fixed costs. Members benefit, not only from easily-available aircraft and coverage under the club insurance policy, but also the camaraderie of fellow pilots ranging in experience from VFR only private pilots to ATPs.

Member Highlight

  • Rob D.

    Member of Cascade Flyers: Since 2013

    Flight Experience: “16 years. Currently [I’m] a US Navy EA-18G Growler pilot based at NAS Whidbey Island. I have flown the F/A-18 Hornet, T-45, T-34 and several different civilian single-engine piston aircraft. I always wanted to be a pilot from the time I was in elementary school.”

    Why he thinks it’s great to be a member of Cascade Flyers: “The airplanes are well-maintained, the costs are very reasonable and the benefits of being a part-owner vice renting is worth it, i.e. having the ability to schedule a plane last minute or go on multiple-day trips.”

    Favorite Route: “Up to Orcas Island to get lunch.”

  • John Y.

    Member of Cascade Flyers: Since 2013

    Flight Experience: “My dad was a private pilot, so I’ve been flying since I was 6 years old…”

    Why he thinks it’s great to be a member of Cascade Flyers: “Great camaraderie! Also a very cost effective way to fly.”

    Favorite Route: “Flying to the San Juan Islands in 40 minutes is MUCH more fun than driving and ferrying for six hours. Also flying over our magnificent mountains is a real kick.”

Our Aircraft

The Cascade Flyers aircraft are hangared conveniently on-field at Paine Field in Everett, Washington (KPAE). The C172 is IFR equipped and is available to members at a low hourly rate. The C182 is an IFR equipped, high-performance aircraft with an STOL kit to aid short field performance and is also very reasonably priced. Both have recently had newly overhauled engines installed (2012/2016) so they are raring to fly!
