Looking for club/share in Kgon area

Posted by Albert Bellgardt on Oct 10, 2017 10:30 am

Hello everyone. I'm a rusty pilot looking to get back up again. Seriously looking for a share or a club in my area. I live in Norwich CT. If anyone knows of anything in Groton or Windham CT would much appreciate the help. I use to fly and rent out of Newport RI when I lived there. Thank you, Albert.

Hi Albert, welcome to the AOPA Hangar! The team here at AOPA has developed a Flying Club Finder on our website, here's a link to that page, hopefully it'll help you on your search to get back in the air!

Hello Albert!

I am always happy to see a Rusty Pilot interested in getting back up in the air! As the AOPA You Can Fly Ambassador for the northeast, one of the things I do is help Rusty Pilots spread their wings again.

As Kayla already pointed out, the Flying Club Locator may help you find a club nearby. I don't see a club at Groton, but there are two clubs not too far away. Connecticut Flyers are located at Chester, and Snoopy's Group are based at Westerly State in Rhode Island. If neither of those is close enough, maybe we can get together a few folks and start a new club closer to home.

Let me know if you'd like to talk a bit about what kind of flying you'd like to do, and perhaps forming a club will be a good way to go.

Thanks!  Norm
