The Cascade Flyers

Our flight club is limited to a maximum of 30 members, each who purchase an equity share in the club and pay low monthly dues to cover fixed costs. Our bylaws require that pilots have an instrument rating or a minimum of 200 hours to be considered for membership.

Rates and Dues

Our current monthly dues are set to cover all fixed expenses including:

  • hangar rent
  • insurance (covering all members)
  • annual aircraft inspections

Our flight rates are a bargain in the PNW, as we operate as a non-profit club. The hourly flight charges are “wet” (fuel included) tach time rates. Note that tach time is often about 10% less than Hobbs time usually charged by FBOs.

Application Procedure

  • Interested pilots attend a board meeting to meet the board, be introduced to other members, and ask questions prior to joining
  • Interested pilots bring their flight log book and a prepared application with them to the board meeting
  • Membership shares are usually purchased from a selling member in the club at a price negotiated with the individual (based on market rates)
  • Once the seller’s share is negotiated the buyer will need approval from the board and will need to pass a checkride with one of the club’s CFI’s, at which point the sale of membership is completed.
