The Bakersfield Flying Club Inc. was created by pilots, for pilots. We operate with a very simple purpose - to provide a safe aircraft, the best flight training for our members and a fun experience.

the aircraft is a breeze utilizing our convenient online scheduling. Online scheduling is accessible from any PC or mobile smart phone.
Instructors - currently we have seven, highly experienced, professional, club approved flight instructors with a combined 60,000 hours of flight experience. All are Instrument Instructors.

There are monthly dues at the Bakersfield Flying Club Inc. We are a friendly group of pilots who have an extraordinary passion for flying. Our members are people like you. Some members fly for recreation, the feeling of freedom and the fun. Some of our members use the aircraft for family trips having the ability to get away and come back when they want to. Some use the aircraft for business trips.

Boy, is this description of the Bakersfield Flying Club old! We now have 4 airplanes (1-C150, 2-C172s, 1-C182) and one Redbird FMX full motion AATD. There are over 125 members (many of whom do not fly but participate in club activities and educational events), and 8 flight instructors. We are an all-volunteer club, organized as a not-for-profit 501C-7 corporation, and welcome new members. Come see us, I think you'll like what you see.
