Kelowna Flying Club Kiwi Program: Let's Go Flying!
The Kelowna Flying Club (KFC) purchased an airplane in 2017 so that its members who hold a minimum of a Private Pilot’s License can renew and maintain their flying skills, learn new ones such as IFR and night time flight, and fly around our stunning mountains and beautiful countryside.
The purchase was made possible by club members who loaned the club $85,000 and who will be paid back over four years with interest. Some 25 members of the club then paid up front for 12 hours of flying that includes maintenance, hangar and insurance costs. The airplane averages around 450 hours per year and members make reservations on our online booking system.
The aircraft is available to non pilots through the KIWI program where members can join the flying program for a minimal amount and pay aircraft costs only to fly. There are designated pilots who have made themselves available to the members.
The Kelowna flying club also has a student program for up to 3 students to join the club and participate in flying the Tiger to build hours. The club has just approved and arranged a bursary program with Okanogan College for one student per year to apply and receive flying benefits.
The plane is managed by a Flying Committee including Chad Gartly, James Sexton, our treasurer, KFC president Dave McElroy, Wayne Heal and Jim Hannibal. Jim has given his invaluable help to the club in purchasing the right airplane, the reservation system, bookkeeping and general rules and regulations.
The airplane, a Grumman AA5B Tiger manufactured in 1979, is kept in a nice warm hangar at Kelowna Airport, so it is available during the winter months on those clear cold days.
The club’s aircraft, registration C-GVXY, is a four-seater with a single 180 Horsepower Lycoming O-360-A4K engine, which allows it to cruise at 139 knots at 75% power. It has a service ceiling of 13,800 feet, and can take off in 850 feet and land in 410 feet. The plane, which has fixed landing gear, can carry 51 US gallons of fuel and has a range of 500 NM at 75% power. Contact Wayne Heal firstname.lastname@example.org or James Hannibal email@example.com for further information.
