No daily minimum flight time.
$107.00 per TACH hour "wet".
$80 per month dues.
Our annual [flight time + dues] "break even" point compared to local FBO rates is as follows:
8 hours in a Piper Arrow III
11 hours in a Cessna 172SP
13 hours in a Piper Archer III
31 hours in a Cessna 152 (but you go 1000 more nm in the Tiger)
If you fly at least 13 hours a year, we are the best choice.
FLYING MAGAZINE rated the Grumman Tiger as one of five underrated stars in its January 2015 issue.
"At 135 knots, it's a good performer, almost 10 percent faster than the competition with about the same fuel burn. It is a great cross-country airplane for a pilot with a small family, as it has plenty of room for young kids, great visibility thanks to the big glass sliding canopy, and a decent payload".
Our Tiger has flown to the Bahamas; Key West, FL; Oshkosh, WI; Bangor, ME & Toronto, Canada.
Over the past 15 years we have continually made upgrades and improvements commensurate with our passion for flying and safety.
We take great pride in all we do.
For a Flying Club airplane, our Tiger is best in class.
