Chartered as a nonprofit Kentucky corporation in 1954, the Lexington Flying Club, Inc. owns a Cessna 152, three Cessna 172's, a Piper Archer II and a Diamond Star, DA-40.

The club is operated to provide its members with low cost flying, safety training and continuing pilot education. All aircraft are based at Lexington's Blue Grass Airport and are maintained by FAA certified maintenance personnel.

The Club has approximately 85 members (approximately 50 active flyers.) Flying experience is not required for membership; in fact, about one fifth of our members are student pilots, taking lessons, and working towards that private pilot certificate.

Although the Club is not a flight school, per se, Club approved instructors are available and have helped many of the Club's pilots obtain private and instrument licenses/ratings.

There are two available membership levels, Restricted and Full. Restricted members may fly the Cessnas (152 and 172's) after a $200.00 initiation fee. Restricted members pay monthly dues of $41.50. Full members may fly all airplanes after a $500.00 initiation fee. Full members pay monthly dues of $58.00.

There is also a membership that bridges the two main membership levels, providing a way to incrementally pay the difference in initiation fees as you continue to fly the Cessna 172's. Once the FULL membership initiation fee is paid off, you can then start flying the Archer and the Diamond Star.

Pilots in the lower (Restricted) level of membership fly the Cessna 172's at $8/hr more than the rate shown below. Other restrictions on the lower membership level include a restriction on how far out in time you may schedule (7 days) and a restriction to single day reservations. See the Bylaws for more information about the club membership levels.
