Flying clubs offer an affordable way for pilots to get back in the air and into aircraft ownership, and AOPA is working to make it even easier by offering new financing options for flying clubs. Flying clubs will have the opportunity to finance up to 70 percent of the value of the aircraft with no personal guarantee at amounts as low as $25,000.
Starting and expanding flying clubs is a major initiative in AOPA’s You Can Fly umbrella program. The initiative has helped establish 48 clubs across the country and is connecting interested pilots to existing clubs through the AOPA Flying Club Finder. It also offers an online resource library with detailed information about starting and operating a flying club, including AOPA’s “Checklist for starting a flying club.”
For more details on these new financing options, contact Meredith and the AOPA Finance team by calling 800/62-PLANE (75263) or sending an email. You also can visit the AOPA Aviation Finance website for more information.
