Some members have been in the club for over 50 years! The club continues to provide a safe, convenient, and economical means of flying. The club is set up as a non-profit corporation which provides a more organized and easier membership structure. This allows pilots to become members for less money than most clubs and provides for more organized club decision making. We have 3 active mechanics in our club. The planes are well maintained and we have never had any safety issues with the aircraft. The club has quarterly meetings, as required by the corporate status of the club, to discuss any club matters and direct any actions needed. The club has elections once a year at the January meeting to elect the five board members.
