Is aircraft ownership financially out of your reach right now? You might consider partial ownership through a flying club. And AOPA has the resources to help you get started - or at least investigate the possibility.
The AOPA Pilot Information Center recently added a flying club section to AOPA Online, complete with information about starting a flying club, finding an aircraft, club operations, costs, taxes, and insurance. But there are also tips on how to manage relationships with the FBO and other flying club members and how to effectively promote the club.
So check out the flying club section - aircraft ownership might be more feasible than you think.
If you are currently in a flying club, be sure to call the AOPA Insurance Agency at 800/622-2672 for a free, no-obligation quote on your club's aircraft insurance coverage.

As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
