Welcome to the Lehigh Valley Flying Club

If you're looking for an affordable way to get back into General Aviation, you just found it!

Join the Lehigh Valley Flying Club and as an Active Member you'll be able to fly high quality, well maintained aircraft at a very economical cost.  Plus you'll be part of a great group of members who are dedicated to keeping GA flying safe, fun, and affordable.

LVFC is a non-profit club that has been flying since 1956.  We're based at the Lehigh Valley International Airport (KABE) in Allentown, PA.  We enjoy big airport benefits that are GA-friendly, with a huge hangar, helpful voices in the tower, long runways, bright lights, and professional airport and FBO services.

Here are some of the benefits of becoming an Active Member:

  • You'll have access to a range of well-equipped and well-maintained aircraft, including our 2001 Piper Archer III (PA-28-181) and our 300hp 1980 Cessna 182Q Skylane!  We periodically adjust our fleet to meet our members' flying needs. 
  • Our spacious 4-plane hangar includes a furnished (and heated) clubhouse/Pilots’ lounge with a flight planning PC and Wi-Fi along with other comforts of a well-equipped office.  Airport security-approved members can drive to the hangar for easy access and secure parking.  
  • Aircraft reimbursement hourly rates are "Wet" and are based on Tach time instead of Hobbs for a substantial savings. 
  • An easy-to-use online scheduling system helps you book your favorite aircraft and go!
  • FAA Certified Flight Instructors who are club members are available for primary training, aircraft checkouts, new certificates/ratings, and recurrent training.
  • Economical monthly membership dues and initiation fees.  

For information on how to join, see the "How to Join" link to the left. Then contact our Member Coordinator, at MemberCoordinator@lvfc.org, for more information, to schedule a tour, or to attend a meeting.  New members are welcome!
