Texarkana Flying Club is a member-owned non-profit flying club based at the Texarkana Regional Airport in Texarkana, AR (KTXK).
We have student AND Private Pilots in our group. NOTE: We are NOT a flying school, we are a general aviation flying club. However, you can get your license as a member of our club.
1. We currently have 2 planes -- Cessna 172/160 (4 person, N1974J) and Cessna 182 (4 person, N69CH). Both planes have been recently updated with the latest instrumentation and new engines. They are extremely reliable and of course follow all FAA regulations concerning maintenance.
2. Club costs. -- Monthly dues: $130. First month club buy in is $500. Instructors go for $40 - $50 per hour. Cessna 172 - $129/hour. Cessna 182 - $155/hour. These rental fees include the plane, all fuel, and insurance. It really is a great deal!
We have many pilots in our area that have gone on to great careers in the area, and many on to other cities with United, American Airlines, etc. Also we have a lot of commercial pilots that are flying private jets right here in Texarkana!
However, few want to learn to fly for their commercial pilot's license. A lot of us would like to get to Houston in under two hours. Or to a Razorback game in an hour. Others like to fly with their family to Destin in about the same time it takes to drive to Ft. Worth. A few of us like to fly low and slow and check out our hunting leases!
It's up to you on what you use it for. No matter what it is, the journey is almost always the part that is the most fun. A few of us went to Omaha Nebraska a few years ago to catch a College World Series game! We left in the morning, went to the game, and back home that evening. Try that in a car on a trip that is over 1300 miles round trip.
A member can meet you at the club to discuss any questions you may have.
