Membership to CRAFT is required of all students and renters not part of an accelerated program or LCAA.
The $50 monthly fee covers recurring costs and can be canceled at any time. All collected fees are nonrefundable. Membership includes one free hour of simulator time per month, a $70 value.
We offer a discounted monthly membership of just $40/month for active duty, retired, and honorably discharged military, and first responders.
See this page for all military discounts.
Flying Solo or PIC?
All members who fly solo or PIC in a CRAFT airplane are required to sign the CRAFT General Rental Agreement and to obtain and show proof of coverage for non-owners rental insurance with hull coverage of at least $1000. However, if an in-motion incident occurs, our deductible is $2500 for Cessnas and $5,000 for Diamonds, so we highly recommend carrying $5000 of aircraft damage liability to avoid paying out of pocket for the difference. For student pilots, this coverage is not required until their first solo. We recommend AVEMCO for annual insurance and Starr Gate for monthly insurance.
Scheduling Flight Time
CRAFT uses Flight Circle to schedule aircraft and instructors for lessons. New members will be given instructions on how to log in and add required information, as well as how to schedule training.
Members will need to complete a Membership Package before their first flight, which includes Membership Application or Pilot Record, Credit Card Authorization, Liability Waiver, Policies, and Procedures.
Benefits of MEMBERSHIP
Being a member of CRAFT has many benefits. CRAFT is a community and it’s important to us that you get value from your membership. You’re not only getting access to modern Diamond aircraft, use the free hour in the Redbird Simulator per month on a rainy day or to maintain proficiency. CRAFT hosts monthly Chock Talks, which is a focused ground course, free for members. We organize other free events like Boeing tours, Weather Center tours, Air Traffic Control Tower tours and seminars. We also host a quarterly social for members.
