Information About the Santa Cruz Flying Club

Santa Cruz Flying Club BBQThe Santa Cruz Flying Club (SCFC) is located at the Watsonville Airport, at 170 Aviation Way, on the second floor of the Ocean Air Flight Services hangar. We were formed by a group of flight instructors, aircraft owners, student and renter pilots at the Watsonville Airport in 1982.

In the office is our flight simulator, a lending library of aviation books, videos, magazines and charts, and comfy facilities for planning a flight. Upstairs is a written test center.

Operating Hours

  • Office: There are no set office hours, arrange meeting times with your instructor.
  • Flying: aircraft available 24/7 via online scheduling

The office is generally not staffed except by arrangement with your flight instructor. To get further information, call our office at 831-722-4580. If no one answers, leave us a message and we will return your phone call. A copy of the Santa Cruz Flying Club corporate bylaws are available here (PDF).
