We have worked out a deal with Charlottesville Flight Center to rent their 180hp 172SP to the Club at a reduced rate. The Club then rents it back to our member's for $109 including fuel, making up the difference from monthly dues revenue. You still have to be a private pilot to join the club, but there is only a 1 hour check out on the aircraft, assuming you demonstrate proficiency in that hour. The reservation of it is through CFC at CFC homepage. Since this aircraft is not usually used for primary training, it is much easier to rent for multiple day trips. This page is for general planning only and should not be used for your final calculations regarding the operation of your flight.
