March 10/ 2014 :: Swedish flying club: From frustration to happiness

About the Flying Club and its needs

Western Gästrike Flight Club was founded 50 years ago and currently has 100 members, including 20 active pilots. The flying club is located 200 km north of Stockholm and has its own airfield - with very well kept flying club facilities.

“Over the years, we have traditionally flown Piper and Cessna aircraft and also invested in ultra light aircraft for a number of years now”, said Alf Persson, who is responsible for Private Pilot License (PPL) in the flying club. “The majority of our ultra light flying is increasing, and we currently have 9 students training to become pilots.”

Too expensive
The club had a PA28, SE-FFF, equipped with a traditional aircraft engine, and it was very expensive in terms of fuel costs: Approx. 850 SEK/ hour (equal to EUR 97/ hour, ed.). As a result, the aircraft was standing in the hangar day after day, not being used by the pilots. “It was simply too expensive to take it out for a spin”, Alf Persson explains.> See and read full case incl. photos etc.
