Social Members: there are four levels of this Membership.

 

A base social membership is for those persons who just want to be part of the club, interrelate and enjoy the contact and discussions with other members.

A Social Member has certain rights to bring an Aircraft to the field.

The next level of Social Membership is Social with Maintenance and Insurance and that entitles members to participate in the club's insurance scheme and have their aircraft maintained by the Engineers at the field.

 

The annual cost of this membership is the same as for an Ordinary Member and again there is a once off Nomination fee of $68.00.

The last level is for those members with a parent holding Ordinary membership. With committee approval a Social with Flying Rights class of membership is available which will let the holder fly the family aircraft and only that aircraft.

 

Annual cost is the same as Ordinary Members but with no voting rights nor right to assign the membership to anyone.
