Desert Flying Club is a Nevada non-profit, with one mission:
To create an aviation community where people can make lasting friendships, fly more economically, & become safer pilots.
Rent Aircraft for Less + Save Money What does this actually mean?
In order to further general aviation, we need to make airplanes available at reasonable rates. Desert Flying Club is a non-profit organization. We don´t intend to make money from your aircraft rental activities. Instead, we simply pass along costs to you that you would incur if you were to own the airplane yourself. There is no built-in profit margin, and our goal is not to make money - it´s to save you money! We realize flying is expensive.
Over the first year, we also plan to negotiate discounts for club members at places you would normally purchase things from anyway - like charts, fuel, aviation supplies, etc.
What does that ultimately mean for you? Either you save money, or you fly more!
Let´s Make Some Lasting Friendships Desert Flying Club creates a social community; one where people who share a common passion can get together and meet. It´s no surprise then, that if you attended our events or meetings, that you would make some meaningful connections!
Whether you just make a casual friend, make business connections, or simply find a flying buddy to split the cost of a $100 hamburger with, we know you´ll get WAY more than the value of your membership in gratitude from meeting great people. And that’s one of our goals: to connect the local pilot community and create something bigger than all of us!
Become a Better, Safer Pilot We all want to be a safe pilot. We all have a desire to have more time & money to do the things we want to do. At Desert Flying Club, we give you a reason to go fly! Pilots that fly more often are more proficient, and as a result safer!
Not only will you be able to fly more often, but DFC will host members-only training events. These will be technically-oriented in nature & designed to make you more knowledgeable about flying. Common topics will be weather theory & t-storm avoidance, high-altitude operations, or get-togethers where non-IFR pilots can practice IFR skills on a flight simulator.
Whatever it is, the goal is the same: to make you more proficient, and safer. You´ll get so much more out of all that hard work you put in to getting your license!
