Memberships

Aero Club Albatross (ACA) is a flying and social club. ACA has three forms of membership. Full Members, Student Members and Associate Members. Full Members are licensed pilots who fly our gliders. Junior Members are student glider pilots who are less than 22 years old and have not yet received their license. Associate Members are non-pilots who enjoy our social events and fly with us as passengers. All members are also required to be SSA members.
