I'm already a member of a club through the company I work for. We have about 17 members, most of whom are students, and during good weather months its tough to schedule time unless you do so weeks in advance. And then its a gamble as you never know wha tthe weather will be like on the day you expect to fly, and or if the plane will go down for unscheduled maintenance, which is all to often the case. In any event perfect weather days go by and I can't fly because the plane is booked solid. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy being in this club, and its cheaper than any other club around me that I inquired about, but its still not the same. I'm just to the point where I want to call the shots and be able to fly whenever and wherever I want, without having to worry about what time I get back because somebody else has the plane blocked off on the schedule. Can't tell you how many $100 hamburgr trips I've done or trips to the pilot shop up in Lancaster Pa and had to keep my eye on my watch so I wouldn't infringe on the next guy's time. Just don't want to be part of that anymore. Not to mention the $50 a month I'm basically throwing away just being in a club. Well that $50 will now go toward my tiedown fees. Rather have that money helping my cause than helping to keep a plane operating that's not even mine, so somebody else can fly it. Yes, I'm being a little selfish, I don't deny it.Join a club. I read somewhere that the average annual flight time for all private pilots averaged together is less than 24 hours (per year). That is 2 hours or less per month. Also I read somewhere that in a group of 8 co-owners or club members only like one or two pilots fly regularly. Scheduling is not a problem if you find the right group. And the maintenance burden is spread out across many wallets.
