Sure, I know what you are
thinking. "How can you have a 'Fleet' with just one vessel?"
Well, we're optimistic here, this is just the beginning -
the Central Florida Flying Club has plans to be around for a long time
and as the club grows, the fleet will grow.

Central Florida Flying Club has a motto that guides us. It is, “Fly
More, Spend Less, Have Fun.” To fulfill that promise we’ve adopted a
classic 1963 Cessna 150C as our cost-efficient flyer. This particular
model of the venerable Cessna piston-engine aircraft lineup represents
the last year of the straight tail, fastback design that’s widely
considered to be one of the most desirable and enjoyable versions of
all the 150/152 models manufactured. And with nearly 24,000 150s
rolling off Cessna Aircraft’s assembly line, there’s little doubt that
this machine really did teach the world to fly.
Cessna marketed the C-150 as the world’s premier trainer, with good
reason. Light, small, fuel efficient, and easy to fly, the 150 is an
amazingly versatile fun flyer that makes it easy to get into the air,
and gives pilots and passengers every reason to want to repeat the
experience as often as possible.
Flying members of the CFFC can do their primary training in the C-150
without breaking the bank, build time at rates not seen in years, or
just fly for fun without spending undue sums of money. Our operating
costs put this time-honored airplane on our flight-line for a wet rate
of only $78 per hour.
By operating such a simple, basic airplane, flying members of the CFFC
can earn their private pilot certificate for less than half the cost
the average flight student in America pays. But the benefits don’t end
with initial flight training. Penny pinching pilots who are building
time toward their instrument rating, commercial pilot certificate, or
the much sought after ATP can log Pilot in Command Time as CFFC Flying
Members for as little as $39 per hour.
Fly More, Spend Less, Have Fun!
Yes, we can. We do. And you can too, as a flying member of the Central Florida Flying Club.

Disco 150. Perhaps we’ll tell you why one day. Until then, come on by
and see it for yourself. We love to show it off.

the hanger and meet her in person. Maybe even take her up for a lap or
two around the patch. We'd love to have you!
