Originally founded as the SAC Aero Club, the Offutt Aero Club (now named the LeMay Aero Club and Flight Training Center) was the first flying club in the Armed Forces. The club provides aircraft rental to its members, and also offers flight training for Private Pilot through Airline Transport Pilot certification. Several FAA-certified flight instructors are avail­able and flight instruction is tailored to meet the needs of the members. TDYs and shiftwork schedules can be accommodated. The club has several aircraft, ranging from basic single engine types to multi-engine. Nearly all aircraft are certified for instrument flying. Aero Club aircraft are an approved means of transportation for official travel (TDY's). The Aero Club stocks limited pilot supplies at a discount for members. Introductory flights with an instructor are also available, only $69 for a half hour flight and $89 for a 45 minute flight. Other time variations are available at the current Hobbs / Instructor rates.

FAA requirements: 35 hours of ground training and 35 hours of flight training. 20 hours of the flight training must be dual (with an instructor). The listed cost is to meet minimum Part 141 Federal Aviation Administration requirements only. The national average indicates that more hours may be needed to complete the training. This varies from individual to individual. We estimate an additional 20 hours of Cessna 172F rental and 10 to 15 hours of instructor time may be required.
