Aircraft: We are currently flying N695DS, a 2008 DA40-XLS. Our goal is to increase the club beyond our current 20 member cap to 3-5+ airplanes and 50+ members. Our DA40-XLS has a GFC700 digital autopilot, Synthetic Vision, TIS traffic, XM datalink with cruise speeds up to 150 knots burning just 10-11 gallons per hour.
Our goal is to obtain access to additional aircraft at the approximate ratio of 1 airplane per 15-20 members. If you are the owner of a Technically Advanced aircraft (new or retrofit), please contact the Cape Fear Flying Club. We are seeking additional aircraft for our growing membership through marketing agreements with aircraft owners.
