The Chapter 36 Flying Club was established several decades ago by EAA Chapter 36 members as an economical means of learning to fly. Flying clubs make airplane ownership affordable by spreading the expenses among its members—and the cost of flying can be significantly less than renting from a flight school.
N8223U, a 1964 Cessna 172 Skyhawk, is a very capable platform. Equipped with GPS, ADS-B and LED taxi/landing lights, members continue to improve the aircraft with upgrades. Members treat the airplane with the utmost care, a testament to the condition of the airplane despite its age.
Today, the flying club has nearly 20 members—over a third of whom are members of EAA Chapter 36. The flying club is open to pilots who hold at least a private pilot certificate. The airplane is available for local flights, cross-country flying and/or advanced flight training. Fleet expansion is a topic being considered, although the timing of any expansion is uncertain at this time.

Aside from being established by chapter members, the Chapter 36 Flying Club is a completely separate entity with its own By-Laws and organizational leadership.
