The steps for club membership are as follows:

1. Submit a membership application

2. Meet the Board of Directors – This typically takes place during our monthly board meetings, club events (see our Upcoming Events for dates), or a scheduled meet and greet with board members. Once we receive your application, we will schedule with you a chance to meet the board.

3. Provide a check for the initiation fee ($350) plus the first month’s Dues ( $95 before the 15th of the month OR $44.50 after the 15th of the month ) – this fee should be presented when meeting with the board (Step 2)

Once the above three steps are completed, the Board will vote on the applicant. Upon a majority vote, the applicant will be accepted as a regular member and will authorize to fly all club aircraft with appropriate checkout flights.



In an effort to accommodate our full-time high school and college student members, a deferred membership is available in which $150.00 of the initiation fee is deferred temporarily resulting in an initial fee requirement of $200.00 plus the first month’s Dues ( $95 before the 15th of the month OR $42.50 after the 15th of the month ) . In order to qualify the following criterion must be met:

1. The applicant must be a current full-time high school or college student

2. The applicant must possess less than 100 hours of total flight time

Deferred members are only authorized to fly the Diamond DA20, Piper Archer III, Cessna 172 and the Grumman Cheetah. The balance of the normal initiation fee ($150.00) becomes due when any of the following conditions are met:

1. Upon the deferred member’s first anniversary of joining Knoxville Flyers, Inc.

2. The deferred member surpasses 100 hours of total flight time

3. The deferred member achieves their Private Pilot rating

Upon payment of the balance of the initiation fee, the deferred membership is upgraded to a regular level membership


Knoxville Flyers, Inc. is a non-profit social organization chartered to allow members and their families to enjoy fun, fellowship, flying and learning to fly as a club member.

Knoxville Flyers has been East Tennessee’s premier flying club for over three decades. The Knoxville Flyers was founded in 1968, and owns a fleet of IFR-equipped aircraft based at Knoxville Downtown Island Airport (DKX). Located on an island in the Tennessee river in downtown Knoxville, DKX offers a beautiful, challenging, full service airport for the club. All of our aircraft are parked, under cover, in the plane ports next to the main terminal.

We are neither a flight school, nor a time building organization, for non-members, but we welcome new members (space permitting, of course) whether student, or experienced, pilots to join us.
