UFC and CFC Reciprocal Membership starts July 2014

After some negotiation, University Flying Club (UFC) has entered into an affiliation agreement with the Curtin Flying Club (CFC). This is seen as a reciprocal arrangement giving members of each club access to each other’s aircraft to the benefit of all. For members of both clubs, there will be no change to the fee structure initially. However, club membership fees will be aligned in due course so as not to disadvantage one club over the other. Aircraft usage costs will be as determined for each aircraft by their respective clubs. Each club will maintain their own committees and operate independently of one another.

For aircraft usage, each club will maintain the existing application, induction and checking procedures. How to go about these, contacts and aircraft location are detailed below.

About the Curtin Flying Club (CFC)

Curtin Flying Club commenced operations in 1975 with a leased C150 and the view of offering affordable flying to its members. It currently owns two C172SP aircraft: CYQ and KXW (G1000 equipped). Both aircraft are housed and managed through RACWA. Further information on the club can be obtained from the web site www.curtinflyingclub.com.au or from the President (Malcolm Roberts 0407242283; email yodel_bear@yahoo.co.uk) Vice-President (Peter Mitchell 0418924931) or Secretary (Peter Taylor 0417097813; email seccfc@curtinflyingclub.com.au). Access to the aircraft generally involves an introduction to club procedures at YPJT including the booking system and, depending on experience, a trial flight usually with a committee member. These are not mandatory and are based on merit. For those who wish to fly the G1000 equipped aircraft, a two hour introductory course on its operation is required (free of charge to club members) for those who are not familiar plus a short trial flight. Headsets can be hired from RACWA and the club has its own lifejackets for hire if needed.

 

About the University Flying Club (UFC)

University Flying Club was established in 1964, as a non-profit organisation with the aim of providing more affordable flying to members and the University Community. Over the years UFC has operated 20 aircraft, including various C150s, C172/RGs, Victa Airtourer 100s, PA38 Tommahawks and the Grumman AA5B.

The club currently owns a 2011 PiperSport VH-EZT. The aircraft is a 2-seater with modern 3-panel glass avionics. The aircraft is based at Jandakot Flight Centre (JFC). Hire approval involves a club induction at Jandakot and completion of check-ride with one of clubs nominated instructors. Headsets / lifejackets are provided free of charge and after-hours access is always available

More information can be found on the club website (http://uniflying.org.au/) or by contacting the President (Scott Palmer 0410556387). Note: There is no requirement to be affiliated with a University to join UFC.

New Social Membership Option Available

Based on the feedback from a survey conducted in May 2013 past members indicated that a Social Member option would be good for people who no longer fly or who just want to keep in touch / involved with the club but not as full flying members.

This includes being added to the clubs mailing lists, social events, newsletters and future publications.

Pricing:

  • $20 per annum. The membership year starts on April 1st.

How to Join:

To sign up as a Social Member simply complete the Social Membership Form:
