Club Facilities


Why I'm interested in starting a club:
Cost and to bring others into the sport. Would get more involved with the group. I have flown with a Major airline for over 20 years and would like to see young people stay in the field. The area is full of aviation with Ft Rucker only 30 miles. Looking to start a club at one the following locations: 79J - South Alabama Regional Airport at Bill Benton Field
Andalusia/Opp, Alabama, USA; 5AL7 - Hataway Field Airport; Kinston, Alabama, USA; EDN - Enterprise Municipal Airport; Enterprise, Alabama, USA

Description of the hangar/clubhouse facilities:
Trailer at 5AL7 without power or water at this point.

Progress made towards starting the club:
Have 2 members but only have a verbal agreement. I have both of them on the insurance policy. No Hull damage coverage.

@HLOCKE8 - I'm in Enterprise too...might be here for a few years...I was thinking of co-ownership, but a club may be a good option too. Email me at maybe we can figure something out.

Club is full at this point. Did not make it LLC. Thinking about hull damage. Found out once you go to 5 members ins. goes way up becomes commercial. Any help or ideas we would appreciate. Still room for others if we could start something at 79J/EDN.

Trying to have club moving towards LLC by the first part of the year. We now have 4 members.
