Club fees

 

as of:

November 27, 2013

         All members are charged a $500 deposit, which is non-refundable. This deposit shall be used to cover unpaid dues, emergency maintenance, damage costs, or equipment upgrades deemed necessary by the Board of Directors.


         Monthly dues of $80.00 are charged monthly to all members and are used to cover the fixed costs of operating the Club. Hourly usage rates are computed using tach time and the hourly rates include fuel (currently reimbursed to members at the amount paid). Tach time means that at low RPM settings (e.g., taxiing, idling, approaches) you are only charged for a fraction of the elapsed clock time (Hobbs). Current aircraft rates, subject to change, are $110 per tach hour.


         Members are responsible for refueling the airplane at the end of each flight. The club uses Dulles Aviation for fuel at Manassas Regional Airport and they are open most days from 8am to 10pm. Dulles Aviation bills the club directly for fuel and oil purchases. For fuel purchased by members on X-country flights, the Club reimburses members at the amount paid (receipts are required for reimbursement).


         The monthly bill sent to members covers dues, flying charges, and any other club charges such as manuals. Please recognize that the club is a purely volunteer organization and members are expected to pay promptly (by the 20th of the month, please).
