Membership requires approval
We have 4 levels of membership
Pilot Member for any person wishing to operate, or hire, an aircraft (flex-wing and three-axis microlight, fixed-wing, helicopter, gyrocopter, motor glider, glider, or balloon) out of Perth (Scone) Airport, on a permanent or regular basis, must be a full member of the Scottish Aero Club (SAC). Full membership will entitle a person to the complete range of services, facilities and concessions available at the SAC. These include:
Student member applies to those undergoing their 1st year of flight training with any of the SAC-associated flight training schools, i.e. training in GA, 3-axis aircraft; microlights; and gyrocopters. The benefits are the same as those shown above for a full pilot member.
Associate member will be open to pilots not based at Perth and persons who do not fly from Perth as a pilot. (e.g. regular passengers, skywatch observers and aircraft enthusiasts). Associate members will enjoy all of the services, facilities and concessions provided by the club, except those associated with the operation of an aircraft, they will join our mailing list, receive our newsletters and benefit from Club discounts such as with Skylodge, Pooley’s, Hayward Insurance and a growing list of others.
Junior member is aimed at encouraging the next generation of SAC members and pilots. Junior members will enjoy the same services, facilities and concessions as Associate members, except that they will not be allowed ‘airside’ or in the hangar, unless accompanied by an adult SAC member. They will be able to attend Club functions, feel a sense of belonging with the aviation community, receive mentoring and have the opportunity to fly with Club members and perhaps be trained as Skywatch observers (these latter two priviledges subject to the approval of a parent or guardian).
This category of membership will be open to 14-18 year-olds. However, young persons who are pilots, or who are beginning flying training, will be required to be full members.
