As we enter our fourth year of operation, Westmoreland Aviation is pleased to announce the beginning of its Westmoreland Aviators Club program. Westmoreland Aviators has been created to allow pilots to enjoy the benefits of aircraft ownership without the burden and cost of maintenance. We invite you to join the Aviators and enjoy the facilities, aircraft, and the camaraderie of your fellow pilots.
The Aviators program is beginning with two aircraft. The first aircraft is an IFR Certified Piper Warrior II which has dual KX-155’s and a Garmin GPS. The second aircraft available to the Aviators is our Piper Arrow II. The Arrow is outfitted with a Garmin 530W, a KX-155, an STEC 50 autopilot with Roll Steering, and a Garmin 696 with charts, weather, and XM radio for those long flights. We are always on the lookout for other quality and fun aircraft that we may add to our collection.
The Aviators currently has two levels of membership. Our Bronze membership provides first priority access to our Piper Warrior II aircraft. Our Silver membership adds the Piper Arrow II to your membership. After payment of the one-time initiation fee, you will have the security of knowing your only on-going cost to belong to the Aviators Flight Club is your low monthly dues. You will have no risk of assessments for unplanned maintenance costs or repairs.

We have created a pilots lounge with comfortable seating, a large HD television screen, and a kitchen. On those days when the weather has put a dampener on our flight plans you can enjoy the facilities or add to your training. We have training DVD’s and software. If you want to explore the capabilities of one of our autopilots or the Garmin 530W, GPS696, or CNX480 we have installed useful training aids for your use. These include the interactive 530 WAAS Approach and Advanced IFR training programs, or if you are new to the 530W unit we have installed the fully interactive 430/530 complete training DVD.
We also maintain a flight planning desk with high speed internet access. You can check the weather, file your flight plan and print your charts all with the Jeppesen FliteStar system we maintain for Aviators. If you have never used this system we are sure you will never want to fly in the ATC system again without it. At Westmoreland Aviation safety is first and therefore, all rental and training aircraft are maintained in compliance with the FAR and are subjected to 100 hour inspections.
We hope that you will take the time to visit us and see for yourself the benefits of becoming a Westmoreland Aviator.
