Our team of Certified Flight Instructors will show you the joy of flight while giving you the tools you need to become a competent and safe pilot. And for the experienced pilots out there you wont be able to find a better deal flying airplanes in the state!

The Texas Flying Club (formerly the Texas A&M Flying Club) is a nonprofit organization with the main focus of providing a safe, affordable, and fun environment for pilots, aspiring pilots, and aviation enthusiasts. We own three airplanes and have facilities at Coulter Airfield in Bryan, TX; as a member, you a part owner of each of the club’s aircraft. The club is run by members, for the members; we work hard to keep our rates as low as possible, you won’t find better rates anywhere!
No aviation background is necessary to join, everyone is welcome. Aspiring pilots will find it very easy to find a flight instructor in the club and get started with their flight training in the aircraft of their choice. Those who already have a pilot’s license will immediately be added to the online scheduling system in order to schedule aircraft for personal use.
We aren’t just a business, we truly are a club. Activities include monthly meetings, plane washes and breakfast, airshows, fly-ins, and more! The club is a great way to meet other pilots and aviation enthusiasts.
Why join the Texas Flying Club instead of going to a flight school business?
- You become a part owner of our three airplanes, not just another paying customer.
- Fly according to your schedule, not just when the business is open.
- As a non-profit organization, we work for our member’s benefit, not the bottom line. All revenue goes back into the airplanes and the club.
- Insurance coverage is included in your membership dues (as opposed to the need for rental insurance for flight school flying).
The Texas Flying Club works hard to make club membership affordable and enjoyable for everyone. All of our members are part owners of all of the aircraft and club facilities; therefore everyone gets to have a say in how things are done. No prior aviation experience is necessary to join. Many of our members joined with no flying background and went on to earn their pilot’s licenses and advanced ratings. We accept members of all ages; one can legally solo an airplane at only 16 years of age and so long as one holds a valid FAA medical certificate there is no upper age cutoff.
If you are interested in joining the club or even just learning more about membership, contact our membership coordinator.
Club Meeting Times: 2nd Monday of every month, board meeting at 6:00 PM and general meeting at 7:00 PM
