MEMBERSHIP & FLYING RATES in 2021.
CSFC "Gold" membership
£600 a year (may be paid at £50 a month for a full 12 months). "Gold" members commit to a full year in the scheme, with renewals also being for a full year.
PPL "Gold" flying @ £125.00 per Tacho hour incl VAT
(A "tacho hour" is measured by the engine rev counter or tachometer.)
PILOT TRAINING is conducted by our hosts at Rochester - Skytrek Flying School. As a member of CSFC you may opt to learn via us on our aircraft as shown opposite. It's a 4-seater so bigger, heavier and may appear slightly more complicated than the 2-seat aircraft normally used for training. However some larger individuals may find it more comfortable than the 2-seaters. Cost is another factor with larger aircraft typically being more expensive than smaller models.
Alternatively you may choose to learn direct with Skytrek (rather than via CSFC) using their fleet. You should check with them but at the time of writing their dual rate in a C-152 was £195 fully inclusive for a brakes off/on hour. They have two such aircraft, plus (and costing more) an aerobatic version and a couple of other C-172s.
Student "Gold" flying (via CSFC in our aircraft) costs £103.75 incl VAT.
N.B. (i) Student flying is from brakes off to brakes on
N.B. (ii) In addition to the flying rate (aircraft hire) there is a fee payable to Skytrek to cover the instructor plus the administration of the training. This is currently £60 per brakes off/on hour and includes VAT.
Therefore the total student "Gold" cost per brakes off/on hour = £163.75 incl VAT.
