Goodrich Flying Club

The Goal…

The goal of the Goodrich Flying Club is to offer this region’s pilots a fast, well-equipped, well-maintained aircraft in an easy to join club at very affordable rates.

The Plane…

Our plane is N201DA,  a beautiful and well-equipped 1977 Mooney 201. When you walk out into the hangar you immediately notice how sharp looking it is with its dark red and bright white paint with gold trim. Climb up on the wing and look in and you see that it has a very nice tan leather interior. Slide into the comfortable pilot’s seat and you will begin to admire how nicely laid out the panel is. A Garmin audio panel is on top followed by a NEW GARMIN GTN-650 TOUCHSCREEN GPS/NAV/COM, a King KX-165 nav/com, and a Garmin digital transponder. Other panel features include the King HSI, the engine analyzer, the electric back up attitude indicator, the fully coupled Century 2-axis autopilot, and the amazing Garmin 696 color tablet GPS (linked to the GTN-650) mounted right on the yoke. If you are not familiar with the Garmin 696, check it out here, it has XM weather, current VFR and IFR charts and approach plates, and backup instruments.

N201DA is a joy to fly… smooth, quiet, and fast. It cruises around 155 knots.

The rate is only $145 per tach hour wet.

The Club…

How do I apply?

You can fill out our simple membership application here, and the insurance form here, and email them to us or fax it to 607-821-7036. The insurance considers each pilot separately to determine what the check out requirements will be depending on make and model hours, retractable time, total hours, and ratings. If you want to know what the required check out time will be, submit the insurance form and we will find out for you. The insurance does require a minimum of 125 hours total time prior to receiving a full check out.

We use an online scheduling system so you can schedule your flying yourself. The plane is first-come, first-served and since the Club is limited to only 10 members, you will find access to the plane very easy.
