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.
