The Princeton Flying Club (PFC) was officially formed (incorporated) on July 16, 2014, by Hank, a local flying enthusiast.  Shortly thereafter, he and another flying enthusiast Hank recruited, Sashi, incorporated the venture and began to assemble the money and members to support the purchase of what would be PFC's first aircraft.

The search was long, but only because it was deliberate, and on March 9, 2015, PFC purchased N3054E, a 1979 model year Cessna 172N with a Garmin 430 and upgraded 180hp engine.  Both Hank and Sashi have moved on, but the PFC remains as originally envisioned: 10 aviation enthusiasts sharing a capable, fun plane.

The 10 members range from newly minted Private Pilots to a career commercial pilot. 

However, as the PFC's finances become managable and members imaginations of new desitinations continues to expand, the PFC is beginning to consider expansion in terms of both members and fleet.  See our AIRCRAFT page for additional information on our plane and our thoughts regarding expansion.  

Prospective members should know that our insurance forbids use of the plane for Private Pilot instruction, however members may use the plane to pursue additional ratings and certicates.  While these amounts would certainly be subject to change if we expanded our membership or fleet, our current cost structure is $6,000 to join (refundable upon securing a replacement member), $81 a month, and an extremely reasonable $95 per tach hour wet (that's right, tach hour, not Hobbs!).
