Announcing Our New Location
The Santa Cruz Flying Club has operated from the Watsonville Airport for nearly 20 years and provided valuable services to the community, including flight training, aircraft rentals and great social opportunities for pilots and aviation enthusiasts alike. Many of us earned our wings at SCFC and fulfilled our dream of flight. SCFC is an institution at KWVI and is held in high regard throughout Northern California.
The continuing weak economic environment has been a challenge for General Aviation and for SCFC. To continue to do our good work, we will be making some changes, effective October 1. Here are some of the details:
- We moved from our existing location to an office located on the second floor of Ocean Air Flight Service at 170 Aviation Way (just across the parking lot).
- Santa Cruz Flying Club will no longer provide aircraft rental directly. Instead, we will provide access to aircraft through agreements with participating FBO’s at KWVI. Whenever possible discounted hourly rates will be arranged on those aircraft.
- You can continue your flight training from most of your favorite SCFC CFI’s through the FBO’s where you rent your aircraft.
Club Membership Dues
Existing club members probably noticed the decrease in membership dues during the transition. For a time we had no aircraft available and temporarily reduced the dues to reflect that change.
We now have even more aircraft available than we did before, but due to cost savings in other areas we can now offer a reduced rate on club dues. Effective November 1, dues will be reduced to $15 per month, payable exclusively though Paypal. Paypal will help us keep our costs as low as possible. Current dues-paying club members will receive separate information on the transition to PayPal and dues information.
