What are the membership requirements?
Our only requirements are that you pay the initiation fee, the monthly fees, and are voted in by the membership. Other than that...nothing. There are no minimum hours to fly, no minimum meetings to attend, heck, you don't even have to be a pilot to be a member as long as you meet the other requirements. You can see our By-Laws for the official membership requirements.
