We're based at DuPage Airport (DPA), nestled in the Fox River Valley, 31 miles directly west of Chicago's Loop.
We promote aviation safety, education and fellowship through meetings, social activities and member flight training.
The Fox Flying Club is one of the better kept secrets at the DuPage airport. Our club has been active since 1956 and represents one of the best dollar for dollar values in aviation. A key ingredient to our club's success is that we've always insisted on having modern, well-maintained aircraft with advanced radio and navigation avionics available at reasonable rates.
But even more important, we tend to attract the kind of friendly, conscientious pilots and flight instructors who can open up a whole new world of information that makes your flying safer, more rewarding and more fun.
A flying club is more than just renting airplanes. We try to make our club a bit different, with special events, interesting speakers, and flyins to unusual places. Our attention to preventive maintenance and continued modernization of aircraft and equipment is the way we keep rates low and value high. Our commitment to making flying more affordable, enjoyable and safer is the cornerstone for the Fox Flying Club.
Although we limit membership to optimize scheduling opportunities for members we do have turnover when Active members leave the area or chose to put their flying on hold for a while.
Getting the urge to fly? We welcome student pilots in the club. Every pilot was at one time a student pilot so we’re confident you’ll enjoy, with us, the lofty pursuit of flying!
Participation in the club is a great way to learn more about flying through interaction with other members. We are different than a flight school in that we own the planes and have a strong interest in taking care of them - we are also the ones flying the planes. We keep rates low because club volunteers do as much as possible to keep the planes in top condition. On average, the Club's rates are 20% lower than for-profit flight schools.
