10 Top Tips to Improve Your Flying Club

Top AOPA aviation experts hosted a webinar at 8 pm Jan. 9, 2013 to discuss 10 best practices for flying clubs as part of AOPA’s initiative to support and expand the approximately 650 flying clubs now operating in the U.S. Flying Clubs are favored by both veteran and new pilots as an affordable way to pursue their flying pastime in a variety of different planes. Many clubs also offer initial instruction to student pilots, as well as club fly-in activities and other events that help support general aviation. “We know that there is a great pool of expertise out there among those who have operated flying clubs for a long time,” said Adam Smith, AOPA’s senior vice president of the Center to Advance the Pilot Community. “We recently launched the AOPA Flying Club Network because we feel it’s one of the best ways to support clubs.”

Charitable Flying

Many pilots would like to share their love of aviation with others throughout the year. Charitable flying offers that opportunity. Members call AOPA’s Pilot Information Center all year long to ask how they can sponsor or participate in a charitable flying event. Typically, these pilots want to provide sightseeing flights at local airports to raise funds for civic groups, churches, or youth groups. In addition to raising financial support, many participants are introduced to flying and camaraderie is built between the community and the airport.
