The Paramus Flying Club

The not-for-profit alternative to aircraft rental

For over fifty years, the Paramus Flying Club (PFC) has been providing NY-NJ area pilots the flying experience we all want at a price we can afford.

Our aircraft are located at Caldwell Airport (KCDW) and Linden Airport (KLDJ). We operate three aircraft: A Cessna 172SP G1000, a Cessna 182Q with a SMA FADEC “Diesel” engine, and traditional “steam-gauge” Cessna 172. Our mission is to provide member pilots with well-maintained, well-equipped, and safe aircraft at the lowest possible cost.

To find out more head on over to the “Why PFC?” section of our website, and when you are ready click on the “apply now” button to access our online application form. If you have any additional questions, call us at (347) 7-FLY-PFC and leave a message for us, email us at join@flyingclub.org, or drop in on one of our monthly meetings.

Learn to fly at PFC

Starting in the spring of 2015, Paramus Flying Club will begin offering ab initio private pilot certificate training to aspiring pilots. The club has 6 certificated flight instructors with years of instruction experience. We can help you fulfill your dream of becoming a pilot at a significantly lower cost than flight schools. You will benefit from the encouragement and camaraderie of fellow pilots, all the while training on the planes you will continue to fly after you earn your license. For more information, please see the “Why PFC” section of our webpage.

Fleet Planning & Upgrades

The Paramus Flying Club recently acquired a 2008 model year Cessna 172SP G1000.  This follows on the heels of our conversion of our C182Q to run on a diesel-cycle Jet-A FADEC engine developed by SMA.  (We like to think we were years ahead of Cessna’s own JT-A in this regard.)  Continuing on this tradition, PFC will soon be completely overhauling the avionics and interior  of the C182.

At PFC, we take a proactive approach to fleet planning and upgrades.  We work to ensure that our aircraft remain safe, efficient and attractive, and continues to meet the evolving needs of our membership.
