- There is currently no waiting list for new members already possessing a Private Pilot certificate or higher.
- A waiting list is in effect for new members requiring primary flight training.
Is there a cost associated with the waiting list?
Yes. The waiting list fee helps the club gauge the seriousness of interest in the club, and thereby gives us more accurate information to provide to our existing members looking to sell their membership, and to prospective members interested in buying a membership. While no one can predict when or how many memberships might sell in a given period, knowing how many seriously interested parties there are on the waiting list is useful information.
Prospective members may deposit the equivalent of one month’s membership dues, currently $110 in order to be placed on the waiting list. Pilots on the waiting list will be offered the opportunity to purchase the next membership available and will be contacted in the order that they were placed on the waiting list. If and when the pilot purchases a membership, the waiting list fee is applied to the member’s account as a credit.
The waiting list fee applies to both the standard waiting list and the training waiting list.
Is the waiting list fee refundable?
Yes and no. When the pilot joins Bakalar Flying Club the waiting list fee is applied to their account as a credit, so it is “refunded” upon joining the club. If a pilot’s application for membership is rejected by the club, then their waiting list fee is refunded. Beyond these conditions, requests for refunds of the waiting list fee are reviewed by the board on a case-by-case basis. Pilots should only join the waiting list if they are fully intending to purchase a membership when it is offered.
