Sporty’s Flying Club Membership offers convenient, online scheduling for our airplanes at a discounted rental rate. Members are entitled to 17 full days of access annually (day = more than 8 hours of scheduled time or overnight rental). Members also have the option for an 8-day block of airplane access which is reserved and awarded by lottery system. There is no minimum billing associated with a member’s 8-day block of exclusive access.

The awarding of 8-day blocks occurs annually in September for the upcoming Club year.  The Club year is September 1 – August 31, although members may join at anytime, space permitting.

Additional days are scheduled on a first come, first serve basis.  Access to rental periods of less than 8 hours is unlimited throughout the year. Members are permitted 3 active reservations at any given time to ensure equitable access to Club airplanes.



Bi-monthly social and educational meetings offer a fun setting to interact with club members and hear from aviation experts on a variety of interesting topics.  Meetings take place in the evening in a private room and Sporty’s provides food and drinks. Attendance at meetings is NOT mandatory but is sure to be a fun and worthwhile benefit.
