Have a trip idea?

Part of being a “flying club” is the opportunity to gather a group of people easily to do something fun! Interested in a BBQ at Oceano, lunch at Columbia or Pine Mountain Lake? How about a nice dinner at Napa or South Lake Tahoe? Within just the past months club members have done each of these trips! If you have a trip idea just visit the message forums and name some locations and dates.

The Santa Cruz Flying Club is a non-profit social club centered around aviation and pilot education. The club atmosphere aids in learning to fly by sharing experiences with others, going on group flights to interesting destinations, and sharing flight expenses with other pilots. For more information about this or other events visit the club online at or by calling 831-722-4580.
