At ATA Flight Academy, we are all about options. We accept financing, or self-pay.
If financing is your preferred route, we have preferred lenders available, or you can utilize your own personal financing avenue.
If self-pay is your preferred method, you can pay as you go, you can purchase block time increments and receive bonus "free" hours, or we offer our flying club membership option thru our parent company, Aerotex Aviation.
We offer this option to give you the purchasing power and autonomy to obtain membership status and receive discounted rates on aircraft, instruction rates, and discounts at our pilot shop without breaking the bank!
*Flying with ATA Flight Academy involves becoming a member, (except Transient Tier.) Our membership tier levels are listed below.
*Monthly membership tier level allows monthly membership fee payment, (minus $50 per month for membership dues,) to be used for flight instruction and aircraft rental. Unused funds per month will roll over to the next month to build a balance for more money added to your account. Member can cancel at any time with no-penalty! However, upon cancelation the member will want to completely use their balance on their account paid via the membership fee, as it is non-refundable and will void after 12-months of non-use AFTER cancellation; as you will have paid to get a sizeable discount on aircraft rental, flight instruction, and other various discounts offered per the membership tier level. Otherwise, ALL paid hourly fees will retroactively be billed at the FULL retail (transient rate,) which could result in member owing a balance.
*Anyone undergoing flight training, or that is flying at least once per month will want to join the club for the savings!
If you are someone that travels a lot for business, are visiting from out of town, or even if you have your own aircraft and just need a flight review every couple of years, you can still fly with us and not have to commit to paying monthly club dues.
Those wishing to fly with us but not wanting to commit to a monthly fee may do so as a transient member.
You are not required to pay club dues, but must join the transient member tier. Additionally, transient members will pay FULL rates with NO discounts for both aircraft and instructor.
ALL transient members are still required to fill out club paperwork, provide proof of citizenship and other required documents, and abide to all club policies and procedures.
This is a very popular option, and incentive offered to our students and members!
