Joining Curtin Flying Club is easy, but there are a few things to consider:

We are a club committed to making flying fun and affordable. We are not an aircraft hire company! As such, we expect members to look after equipment (you are now part-owner of each aircraft) and be considerate towards other members.

That means thorough inspection of aircraft before you fly, and reporting any problems that may affect the safety or comfort of future flights. It also includes removing all rubbish and ensuring the aircraft is covered and tied down after each flight. Don’t forget the pitot tube cover!

Looking after your aircraft is vital to us keeping costs down.

All new members are vetted to ensure they are current and have the necessary experience.

Members wishing to fly KXW are required to attend a club run Garmin G1000 course and a one-hour consolidation flight in KXW.

We encourage members to use our aircraft for training purposes (excluding ab initio), so if you have an instructor (or are looking for one) and wish to step into a modern NVFR and IFR aircraft with G1000 and clean performance, we can assist with most requests.
