Club Facilities


The board meets at 7:30 on the third Thursday of every month in the upstairs conference room at Signature Flight Support, the FBO (general aviation terminal) at MOB. To join the club, simply attend one of the meetings and submit an application. Upon approval to join, the initiation fee is $250 and monthly dues are $20. Members are considered part owners of the airplanes and the club's insurance covers the members while operating club airplanes, negating the need for renter insurance.

Flight training is available via Club board-approved independent instructors. "Like" us on Facebook:
