Membership types and fees
There are three classes of members - full flying, student, and associate.
Full flying members are adults over the age of 18 and not full time students. They have full membership rights and duties. Annual subscription - $395.00.
Student membership is for people under the age of 18, or full time students (at least 20 hours per week of course attendance) up to 26 years old. They do not pay a joining fee and do not have voting rights at general meetings. Annual subscription $120.00
Associate members may fly as passengers at visitors' rates. Being an associate is a good way to keep in contact with the club if you are temporarily away from the region. It also exempts you from repaying the joining fee should you decide to become a full member again. Annual subscription $30.00
In addition to the annual fee, a joining fee of $150.00 applies to full flying members
On receipt of your application form and appropriate fees the committee will consider your application and you will be advised accordingly.
