Membership


Provisional Membership

Provisional Membership allows prospective pilots to experience flying without making a major financial commitment. An initiation fee of $47 (2017 rates) and dues of $47 per month (2017 rates) entitles you to three hours of flight instruction at member rates, and if you submit an application for Active Membership the initial three hours is extended until your application is acted on. Provisional Members have limited privileges, but the application can be accepted on-the-spot by your CFI.

Active and Supporting Memberships

Active Membership allows full flying privileges. The Active Membership initiation fee is $600 (2017 rates), and dues are $47 per month (2017 rates). Applicants for Active Membership must attend two regular PYFC meeting or other organized events before their application is acted upon. Active Membership requires some investigation, the endorsement of three Voting Members, and a 75% vote of Voting Members at a Regular Meeting of PYFC.

Supporting Membership has no flying privileges. The Supporting Membership initiation fee is $100, and dues are $23.50 per month (2017 rates). Applicants for Supporting Membership must attend two regular PYFC meeting or other organized events before their application is acted upon. Supporting Membership requires some investigation, the endorsement of three Voting Members, and a 75% vote of Voting Members at a Regular Meeting of PYFC.

Applications / By-laws / Flight Rules

Important Information:

  • All Pilots (including student pilots) are expected to adhere to FAA regulations, PYFC Bylaws and the PYFC Flight Rules. The PYFC Bylaws contain more information about how the club operates, and the PYFC Flight Rules cover how the club flies.
  • TSA requires that all applicants provide proof of US citizenship or legal immigrant status. Non-US citizens must follow additional TSA procedures. Proof of citizenship (usually a US Passport or Birth Certificate) should be made available to the CFI, preferably at the first lesson. The CFI will copy the document for PYFC records and return the original.
  • All members should list a current credit card with MyFBO for routine charging of dues, sales and flying. Personal card and PIN info is not accessible to either PYFC or MyFBO personnel.
