The Princeton Flying Club (PFC) was officially formed  by Shashi and Hank who were both flying enthusiasts.  Official incorporation of the venture occurred on July 16, 2014.  Shortly thereafter, Hank and Shashi began to assemble the money and members to support the purchase of what would be the PFC's first aircraft.

The search was long, but only because it was deliberate.  On March 9, 2015, PFC purchased N3054E, a 1978 Cessna 172N with a Garmin 430W and upgraded 180hp engine.  Both Hank and Sashi have since moved on, but the PFC remains as originally envisioned: 10 to 12 aviation enthusiasts sharing a capable, fun plane.

Currently, our members range from newly minted Private Pilots to experienced pilots. 

Prospective members should know that our insurance forbids use of the plane for Private Pilot instruction.  However, members may use the plane to pursue additional ratings and certificates.  While these amounts would certainly be subject to change if we expanded our membership or fleet, our current cost structure is $6,000 to join (refundable upon securing a replacement member OR after a 6 month waiting period), monthly dues of $68, and $110 per tach hour wet (that's right, tach hour, not Hobbs!).
