About HFC

Harford Flying Club (aka HFC) is a group of friendly, safety-minded pilots who regularly promote aviation safety through monthly briefings, sponsorship of FAA safety seminars, occasional tours, social events, and presentations by our club’s two Certified Flight Instructors (CFIs).

Both CFIs are highly experienced and provide invaluable initial and recurrent flight training options that will enhance your skills as a pilot.

Your $30 monthly membership fee includes access to:
- Economical aircraft rental
- IFR-certified aircraft with updated avionics, including Garmin GPS units
- A simple, online aircraft reservation/scheduling application
- Flight instruction by highly experienced CFIs ($20/hr VFR, $25/hr IFR)
- A local community of like-minded individuals

If you’re located around the Baltimore area and you're looking for opportunities to experience stunning aerial views, professional flight training, the realization of a dream, and/or a network of fellow aviation enthusiasts with which to "hangar-talk," you should consider joining HFC.

Club History

While Harford Flying Club originated as a recreational opportunity on Edgewood Arsenal in Maryland in the 1950s for Army personnel, it was also open to the public. After being forced from the post in 1996, Fallston Airport (W42) became the club's new home. It is now a 501-c(7) non-profit organization incorporated in March 1997.
