PCFC offers the following four levels of membership:
Flying members must have a minimum of a Recreational Pilot Licence (or equivalent).
Flying members may hire PCFC aircraft after either meeting the minimum hours on-type requirement for the aircraft being hired or having been assessed by an appropriate member as being safe on the type of aircraft being hired.
Further, flying members may be members of the PCFC committee and have full voting rights.
Spouses of flying members are entitled to join the club for a nominal fee of $10 per year (which includes a base pass if requested), and children (16 years and younger) of flying members are entitled to complementary junior membership.
As the name suggests, student members are those that are learning to fly from the clubhouse (flight training is provided through a third party flying school not related to the club).
Student members reaching RPL or above wishing to hire club aircraft are required to upgrade to full flying membership.
Social members are those members that are not yet students or do not intend to obtain a flying licence but wish to gather and converse with other club members in the field of aviation.
Social members can be a member of the committee but do not have full voting rights.
Junior members are 16 years of age or younger.
Membership fees to 30 June 2017 are as follows:
