Frequently Asked Questions


Do you have any hangar space available for rent?

We are currently full but we can put you on a waiting list for an opening or for a future hangar.

How late can I get there and get fuel?

The fuel pumps are on and generally attended from sunup to sundown, 7 days a week. We do not have runway lighting. Call to verify outside normal business hours.

What type of tours do you offer?

We will conduct tours of the building and hangar, spending time in our history exhibit and showing different types of airplanes and gliders. We will conduct walking tours or provide seating if physical limitations require it.

How much does it cost to get a Private pilot’s license?

The short answer is approximately $10,000 which includes ground and flight time. Price can vary based on which airplane you fly and how quickly you can demonstrate the proper methods. This includes a minimum of 40 hours of flying time (20 alone and 20 with instructor) - per FAA rules. The best way to learn the big picture on this is to come in and meet with one of our instructors so he has a complete understanding of your wishes. We do offer a Discovery Flight which will introduce you to the flying world.

How do I buy and schedule a glider ride?

You can purchase a gift certificate on our web site, or by calling us or by coming into the airport. Scheduling can be requested by phone, but understand we must coordinate that with pilot availability, glider availability and tow plane and tow pilot availability.
