Club Facilities


Leading Edge Flying Club has earned a reputation for being one of the most exciting flying clubs in Chicagoland. Based out of Chicago Executive Airport (PWK), we enjoy monthly aviation breakfast meetings and during the summer months, our periodic "Dog Day Afternoon" hot dog socials provide plenty of opportunity to log "hangar flying" hours.

Our nearly 100 members enjoy exclusive access to readily-available aircraft such as our glass cockpit Piper Archer III, our Cirrus SR22, and our Piper Dakota. Besides access to a great fleet, our members also enjoy a deal with Aviation Universe for up to 20% off select items as well as discounted avgas from Gary Jet Center and Cardinal Aircraft Services.

Our membership boasts the presence of novice pilots, airline captains, high-time pilots, aviation enthusiasts, military veterans and a line-up of top flight instructors including an FAA Designated Pilot Examiner.

Members are commonly found flying our simulator, prepping for a flight, or snacking at the "L.Edge" clubhouse located on the second floor of our community hangar. Tailwinds!!!
