213 Max talks with Catherine Cavagnaro about aircraft type clubs and why pilots should join one. There are more than a hundred of them, yet only a fraction of pilots belong to one. Yet they offer the best value proposition in aviation: they’re cheap and they could save your life. Most type clubs offer a newsletter or magazine and many have a web site loaded with aircraft details.
As I wrote in a blog article for AOPA eight years ago, “Give yourself an early Christmas present: Join the type club for the aircraft you fly most frequently. But don’t just write a check; become an active participant. Whether you own or rent, you’re bound to learn more about the intricacies of that aircraft model. And if your family is lucky, what you learn as a type club member may someday save your life…and possibly their lives too.”
