We are located just outside of Oak Ridge, TN, and minutes from Knoxville. With a limit of 50 members, we offer a better ratio of members to planes than most other flying clubs. The Oak Ridge Flyers members buy into our club rather than simply renting planes from a pool. Every member is an owner in each aircraft. This helps to ensure that planes are well maintained, and flown more carefully than you get in flying clubs which work on a rental basis.
The Oak Ridge Flyers operate four aircraft at our base (TN08) outside of Oak Ridge, TN. The planes are all well maintained and hangered to help keep them in the best condition possible. We currently have a Cessna 150 Aerobat, Cessna 172 Skyhawk, Cessna 182 and a Champ. With this group of planes, we can accommodate beginners up to experienced pilots. We are proud to be the only club in the area offering a taildragger in our fleet. Our Champ has been completely overhauled and is in excellent condition. Both our 172 and 182 are well equipped for instrument flying with a Garmin 430 and 530 in each respectively. The 182 also has an auto pilot coupled to the GPS. This is a better fleet at much lower costs than the Knoxville flying clubs, or Knoxville airplane rentals.
