I thought about asking individual specific questions, but instead I decided on a different approach. If you were creating or visualizing the ideal flying club, or if you are already a member of one, how would you describe it? Similar to how would you differentiate one business idea from another or one product from another. Or, another way to approach this is, if you can change one or several things about the club you are member of, what would it be? Obviously dues, rates, number of airplanes, scheduling, membership networking, corporate structure are all pieces of the puzzle. Location impacts some of these items. I'm reading through threads to get an idea of what issues are discussed. Here is an example of mine: My ideal flying club has an initiation fee or a buy-in that is reasonable, dues are much better than rental rates, airplanes are in better shape and better equipped then the local rental fleet, plane availability matches my needs, club issues get addressed quickly with minimal bureaucracy, flying proficiency and safety is more than just a slogan - it's enforced, and member contributions help keep the club running. Whats important in your world? So, perhaps this thread can be a brainstorming session of sorts. Maybe you are in a club that had issues with something and you made changes that solved the problems that would be worth noting here.
