Description

Chandelle Flying Club, Inc., is an incorporated not-for-profit club based in Austin, Texas that was established for the flying pleasure of its members (shareholders). Chandelle operates similar to an aircraft partnership in that each member is a partial owner of the corporation that owns the aircraft. Our bylaws limit the membership to a maximum of thirty (30) shareholders who own three airplanes.

Currently, we own a 1971 Cardinal RG, a 1978 Piper Archer II, and a 1976 Piper Warrior. All three aircraft are IFR certified, and are based at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) at Signature flight support. All three planes are kept in hangars.

Joining Chandelle Flying Club is a much less expensive way to Fly General Aviation Aircraft than your traditional flight school. There is no better way to fly airplanes in Austin, TX than Chandelle Flying Club.

Operations of the club are delegated to elected members who run for positions of officers, board of directors, and maintenance officers.Basic aircraft maintenance is performed by volunteer members, and more extensive aircraft maintenance is outsourced to professionals.

To become a member of Chandelle, you must purchase a share from an existing member and be approved by our board of directors.
