    As expensive as it is to live in SoCal, I believe our A/C rental rates are outstanding. For those of you who rent, tell me how your rates stack up to this club I'm in:

    Those are pretty good rates. And a good variety of airplanes. Here's the place I fly out of, and which manages my airplane: www.flyairorlando.com. This web site is a little out of date, as they've added a DA-40, some more SR22s and a Duchess.

    I'll trade you rental rates anyday.
    That's like flying for free.

    Indeed, if those are wet rates, they are outstanding!

    John & Ken, you have the DFW metroplex beat both on rates and variety. John, what fees are associated with your club? About the best I've seen around here are at rfcdallas.com

    Those are darn good rates!
    Where I rent I usually take the R models @ $99 wet, but during my PP training I flew the older/cheaper skyhawk models to save.

    Heres our link:

    The arrow is gone due to damaged gear, guess it was not worth fixing when it went through the wing. :mad: It was replaced with a Commander which I really like but due to insurance I can not get checked in her till I am over 100 hours.

    I have been paying the same rate for 172SP, within a few bucks, but my Cessna Pilot Center is now going down to $89 per hour, so we will be a bit cheaper. I priced out some time in a 172SP in Charleston, SC a year or so ago and they were around $110 wet then. Don't know if they still are or not.

    Looks like you have some good rental rates and a good choice of planes. Is there a monthly fee to be a member of this club?

    Hey, we're practically neighbors! I got my PP at the flight school years ago, but drifted over to Astron for my IR. Do you know what kind of Commander they've got? That's my dream plane. I could practice there until my AOPA sweepstakes plane shows up :)

    You, me and Bob G. should get together for a burger!

    Oh, and to keep this on-topic, the 172's and Warrior at Astron are $82, and I think the 172RG is up to $101 now. Bummer.

    I think it's about $20 to join and $25/mo. The rates shown are wet and fairly current.

    John, I wish there were clubs like your Plus One all over the country. This is incredibly cheap, especially considering fuel prices are higher in the SoCal area. You are in tall cotton!
