Carlisle Flying Club
The Carlisle Flying Club (officially "Carlisle C.A.P. Flying Club,
Inc.") was founded in 1977 with one aircraft and 18
members. The club limits the membership to 30 Equity and Associate members. The club has two Cessna 172 Skyhawks hangared at Carlisle Airport in Carlisle, Pennsylvania (N94) and has always been financially stable.
The Club does not rent aircraft. All members of the club are licensed pilots. Equity members share equal ownership of both aircraft. Fixed expenses such as hanger rent and insurance are paid out of monthly dues. Members pay an hourly rate (Hobbs time) to cover fuel, maintenance, and other costs. Our members are encouraged to participate in the regular maintenance and allowable repairs, while major repair work and annual inspections are performed by outside contractors. This arrangement goes a long way toward keeping costs down. Members schedule their flying time though a convenient online system, FlightSchedulePro
Members are encouraged to continue their training and some have obtained their instrument or higher ratings in club aircraft. Several members are CFII's and may provide training and flight reviews to members for a fee and as their time permits, though using outside instructors is also acceptable. However, club aircraft may not be used for training non-members.
