Gateway Flying Club owns three Cessna Aircraft: 172 - Skyhawk, 177 Cardinal and 182 Skylane. The "Learn to Fly Here" icon means that membership is open to student pilots! Many pilots have earned their certificate in our 172 and then gone on to enjoy many years of flying in our 177 and 182. Aircraft flexibility is one of the best features of our club, it means that there is almost always a plane available when you want to fly and, with some planning, you can get the best airplane for your mission. Our hangar is conveniently located at 2152 Oregon West, just south of the tower. We bill for aircraft usage on a "Dry Tach" basis and all our planes have JPI engine monitoring to give our pilots maximum control of operating costs.
