Panther Aero is a non-equity flying club, meaning members do not purchase a share of the aircraft. As such, members pay a small, one-time initiation fee to join and pay only the hourly rental costs, monthly dues, and other fees outlined below. Costs are evaluated annually based on current operating costs. As a non-profit organization, all revenue goes into the upkeep and furtherance of the club.
Initiation Fee* $500
Monthly Dues $60
Annual Fee $100
*Probationary Memberships are available. The probationary membership costs half of the initiation fee upfront, or $250 and includes one 30 minute introductory flight (aircraft time only, instructor paid separately) and a one-month trial membership. At the conclusion of the 30 days, to become a full-time active member, the remainder of the initiation fee is due along with the monthly dues and any flight time accrued during the probationary period. A signed application must be submitted along with the initiation fee.
