Members Info


Flight Club 502 is a leadership development program that uses lessons in aviation to develop STEM, entrepreneurship (decision making), leadership skills and patriotism. Members can also learn how to fly!

Because we are a youth nonprofit we are able to learn to fly at a reduced price. The youth members need to take good care of the airplanes, the club and participate in club outreach.  Typical flight training at a flight school would cost around $150 per hour to rent a plane plus instructor rates.   At flight club the Cessna 150 is $68 per hour and the 172 is $100 per hour (the actual operating cost).  The instructors are $35 per hour to be paid directly.

PARTIAL FLIGHT SCHOLARSHIPS are available:  Contact Mr. Allen and Captain Rice if you want to apply for a partial scholarship.

Pre-requisite to begin Stage 1: Complete the Intro to Flight Course taught by Senior Members.
You cannot begin flight training in the club planes unless you have been through the intro course.

Also, In order to obtain your Private Pilot’s Certificate and to Solo the plane you must obtain an FAA Medical Certificate and the Student Pilot Certificate.

FAA MEDICAL CERTIFICATE:  students need 3rd class – you must be 16 to apply.
During this stage of training you need to be working on your written exam!  Here is the link to the prep book that has all the possible questions and answers:

We will be offering a prep for the written exam so watch on the website.
This is the final stage of obtaining  your license. You must have completed all the required training and have passed your written exam. The checkride cost approximately $650. The cost to obtain your license depends on many variables including how hard you study and how often you fly.
