Wings of Carolina Flying Club
At Wings of Carolina Flying Club, our mission is to provide safe aeronautical training, low cost aviation education, inexpensive hourly aircraft rates, and flying fun.
Visiting the Club
Prospective members are always welcome to visit the club! Visit the club location at Raleigh Executive Jetport on Saturday and Sunday between 1 and 4pm to talk with a Club Ambassador. See directions for how to find us!
Attend a Second Saturday cookout or Pizza Night / Safety Meeting (see Events for details) to chat with club members and instructors.
Due to extraordinary interest in flight training and club membership, our waiting list for initial flight training and checkouts has grown to more than fifty people, and our waiting period to initiate training is now several months.
We continue to welcome new members and hope you will consider the club for your flight training or as a flying member, but in fairness we want you to know that you should plan ahead and reach out to the club sooner rather than later.
We are working to expand our training capacity, but we will do so without compromising the safety and quality of our instruction, and so this will take time.
As a not-for-profit organization, Wings of Carolina is able to provide aircraft for member use at a low hourly rate compared with profit driven operations. Our ground school classes, seminars, and other events are open to the public. Membership is open to any individual who agrees to support the Club and its mission. Click to read more …
