Our monthly dues increased from $100 to $125 in April of 2008, and then to $150 in October of 2023. The monthly dues are used for our fixed operating expenses which include insurance, tie-downs and hangars, annual inspections, GPS navigation updates, and office and web site expenses. They also include a margin for “wear and tear” maintenance on the aircraft, new paint, interior replacement, etc.
Our hourly rates are periodically adjusted to cover the actual cost of flying the aircraft. This includes fuel, maintenance, and engine reserves. Details of how we price the aircraft are discussed at monthly business meetings, listed on the Events page.
