Membership Information

Family in front of airplane borderWe have some of the most affordable membership rates in the area, no daily minimums for checking out the airplane, and competitively priced hourly rates that are billed on Tach Time instead of Hobbs Time.

Our Club presently owns one aircraft. The existing aircraft is a 1997 Cessna 172R, which is IFR certified and in very good condition.

Our club is currently at capacity and we have no memberships available at this time. We are investigating options to expand the club through the purchase of an additional aircraft. Interested individuals should submit an application which will be added to our waiting list.

Mitchell Flying Club operates as a Not-For-Profit, otherwise known as a 501c(3), corporation in Missouri. By law, members share use of the aircraft but do not own “shares” of corporate stock or any club assets (aircraft, etc.). Because our club members do not actually own the club or its assets, they enjoy the benefit of limited liability for other club members as well as no requirement to obtain renter’s insurance.

Our current rates are as follows:

  • $500.00 membership initiation deposit.
  • Monthly membership dues are $67.00 per month. Monthly dues covers fixed expense like Insurance, GPS Data base, Property taxes, hangar rent.
  • $57 per hour of airplane use. Our hourly rate is billed on Tach time, not Hobbs time (approximately 10% savings).
  • Fuel is not included in the hourly rate. Members pay for their own fuel.
