Albuquerque Soaring Club

How much could this cost?

Up ] Becoming a Pilot ] [ Costs ] Advanced Training ]

Training with the Albuquerque Soaring Club provides a fun and low cost solution for learning to fly. Monthly dues cover expenses of routine maintenance, aircraft insurance, and other miscellaneous costs.  You will pay a tow fee for each flight you take. Additionally, there is a small hourly fee for the time that you spend flying club aircraft.  Our club instructors volunteer their time to teach you.

As a club member, in return you help keep the club operating.  Glider clubs are able to provide nice facilities and equipment at reasonable rates because all the members spend their time to help with the chores such as operations duty, spring cleaning, and keeping up with maintenance in and around the club house, hangar, and aircraft.
