Club Facilities


Why I'm interested in starting a club:
I have long wanted to start a flight club simply for the love of flying and sharing the costs of having a flying club. Especially around my locale, there is no such thing and there have been several interested parties asking about one, so I thought to make the leap and get one started.

Description of the hangar/clubhouse facilities (KFYV or KVBT):
At FYV, there really is not a club house or hangar facilities there, there are general safety meetings that occur once now and then in the main lobby area of Drake airport, the facility is nice enough and big enough to house several members of a flying club. There are also unused spaces that could be rented out, and possibly and hangar or two.

VBT is relatively under construction, and there really is nothing as far as I know but a small FBO owned by the City.

Progress made towards starting the club:
There have been many general meetings to establish a flying club, and it basically gets nowhere. Not enough people are willing to partake the challenge. Also, many come and then never to return to follow through.
