My current club charges from block off/block on, I don't know if this is THE term for this, but mainly... Charges start from just before takeoff, until landing and departing the runway. Plus they add 10 minutes (5 for taxi after start, 5 for back to hangar). The fuel is paid for from the rental price. What is this type of scheme called? What other types are used in othe clubs? I'm looking into the possibility of going for, a larg club at an untowered airport to a smaller club, at a controlled, busy airport, and the club has 2 (twice as many) trainer C172's. Also they seem to have more chance to instruct around my schedule, and seem to have less downtime on each of their planes. I'm trying to think of any questions I ought to ask when checking out the new club. It's a little intimidating knowing the club I am considering is at a huge airport, and definitely a challenge, but honestly I have been worried a little that I would get my PPL and be wary of flying into TMA for larger airports, this would sure cure me of that...if I make it. A lot more to learn about the airport, and a lot more practice on the radio I guess. But mainly, the lone plane I can train on now has either been grounded, in service, or not quite right for a longer period. This summer it was unavailable for almost all of July. And there are a lot more students vying for renting it. The other club is smaller and has two trainers with steam gauges that would be usable to train in. That alone seems like a win.
