FlyBayArea is not your typical flying club. Unlike most other clubs in the Bay Area, we DO NOT require that you pay a monthly membership fee to fly our airplanes. There is also NO INITIATION FEE! the first time you join or if you have to re-register later.

The Membership Tiers are depicted in the diagram above. They are the Free, Standard, and Premium Memberships.

Some added benefits are offered as you move up to each Program Tier. 

The first tier, the Free Membership, is a good fit for people that don’t want a monthly fee and prefer to pay a higher hourly rate. This is a great option for temporary members or for pilots who don’t live in the local area. 

The second program tier, the Standard Membership, is a good fit for students and pilots who would like to pay a lower hourly rate and can commit to flying at least 1 time per week. Regular members have access to airplanes as well as simulators to maintain currency. They can easily reserve a plane based on their needs and per FBA’s plane availability. Regular Members get a 10% discount on Rental and Instruction.

The third highest tier, the Premium Membership, is offered for those members with a specific training or flying goal in mind and who will be able to fly at least 5 Hobbs hours per month.   These members rely on a set schedule to achieve their goals efficiently therefore, this membership entitles them to Priority Booking over all other members.  Additionally, these members receive 15% discount on airplane rental rates and instruction and are eligible to earn FREE flight time each month when they fly at least 10 Hobbs hours during the previous month.

Members are able to move up and down the different membership tiers as their needs change.
