Membership in the Abbotsford Flying Club is both rewarding and fun.
Good reasons to join our club:
- Camaraderie – Opportunities to participate and volunteer in fun events including flyouts, training & safety seminars, socials and club-service events (e.g. Abbotsford International Airshow, First Flights for Kids, Wings & Wheels, etc.).
- Networking & Education – Meetings are regularly-scheduled and often feature interesting aviation presentations and social opportunities to chat with enthusiastic like-minded people and pilots.
- Aircraft – Exclusive owner-level access to 2 well-equipped single-engine light aircraft. Fly them when you want at $150/hr billed on tachometer time. Operation of the club aircraft is available to qualified pilots once checked out on type. As well, non-flying members can ask club pilots for a ride in club aircraft anytime, paying costs for the club pilot.
- Clubhouse – Access to a well-equipped clubhouse with amenities such as bar, pool table, dart board, leather couches, kitchen, patio, BBQ, etc. Members are also able to use the clubhouse for their own private family events.
Qualifications for Membership
- Interest in Aviation – Anyone with an interest in aviation and any qualified pilots, former pilots or persons directly involved in aviation are welcome.
- Club-Service Focus – Showing support for the club can be done in many ways:
- Attending and helping out at club events (e.g. meetings, seminars, socials, First Flights, airshow, etc.),
- Helping out with club tasks (e.g. aircraft care, clubhouse maintenance), flying club aircraft, bringing in new members and volunteering is greatly appreciated and welcomed. There’s always a job to do and many hands make light work.
